Crockett's wardrobe in this episode is damn good....
11 February 2008 | by edwardjamessmithSee all my reviews

The title may sound like it's not a good episode at all, but it really is. Miami Vice episodes which focus on the other members of the vice squad aren't that bad. This one focuses on Trudy the most. Jan Hammer's score is good (Why hasn't he released any of those scores which were composed for the season four episodes????) and suits the story. At the start, I didn't think it was going to be an interesting episode but about half an hour through, it got a bit better. Crockett's wardrobe is great (that short light blue jacket he wears towards the end is so good) and that's all I have to say. rating 8/10. Miami Vice is a great show which has it all.
