A bitter pill for Crockett
7 April 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

'The Home Invaders' is a Castillo episode, but not the kind you'd expect (no drama from his past to flesh out his character). The absence of Tubbs means he steps in as a quasi-partner for Crockett, and it actually takes on sort of a Driving Miss Daisy vibe in a couple of scenes. But it also puts a novel spin on what could've been a routine procedural. The Mustache is actually hitting the streets. And when the man actually works the case (and schools everyone), you almost get a buzz off of it. It's good stuff.

Great episode all around; there's tension, the brutality of the burglaries stands out and great Jan Hammer themes throughout.

9/10
