The squad is assigned to assist Robbery with a string of brutal home invasions. Castillo is concerned the officer in charge - who was Crockett's mentor - is mishandling the investigation and the two clash, leaving Crockett torn between loyalty and a resolved case.Written by
When Crockett and Castillo start after the lady in the blue corvette it is obvious that their Ferrari has an automatic transmission when Crockett puts it in "Drive." No Ferrari 365 GTS/4 had an automatic transmission. See more »
'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.
