A dark, hard hitting episode featuring the return of Ira Stone
14 April 2008 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

This second episode continues the darker tone of the season. Beginning with one of the grittiest openings of any "Vice" episode, this hard hitting tale takes no prisoners.

When Ira Stone films footage of American soldiers committing atrocities in Nicaragua, his life is placed in peril and events spiral out of control.

Don Johnson plays a doubtful, cynical Crockett in this episode and he delivers a solid performance. Crockett and Tubbs' nemesis from season two is back in the form of "Captain Real Estate", played by G. Gordon Liddy.

This is television gold. Difficult and confrontational viewing, I score this tale 9 out of 10.
