but that in actuality probably belongs to "Missing Hours". ;)Also, I realize that everyone has their opinions...but who the heck rated this "booger" a 10?? :eek: LOL! ;)

Still just a 4 for me. ;)

It's not THAT bad' date=' It's just inappropriate for the show. What's dick wolf going to come up with next? aliens? no wait...It felt like something out of Knight Rider or A team[/quote']It's no where near as bad as "Missing" or "Cows" (but what other episodes are?) for sure...but it was still pretty stupid & ridiculous :rolleyes: , and I agree...seemed very out of place or "inappropriate" for "MV".The plot idea was maybe more what "Knight Rider" and "A-Team" were about...but this episode was way too violent and "dark" for even them--they were more kid/family oriented than say "MV". Although personally I love all 3 shows and grew up with all 3! :thumbsup:I think "Viking" was more like a B-80's action movie...with a pointless plot, bad acting, and tons of over-the-top action. It just didn't "fit". I still give it a 4. :evil:

I did like the cynicism Crockett feels towards the end, It's a nice arc he goes through..Too bad it's in this episode :/During the first few seasons he says a few lines expressing some distaste in the futility of his occupation. They expand on it later, which is cool.

Really guys? :p I got a little tired of the negativity later on...it's understandable and okay for a while, but soon it's like dude, you chose the profession...deal with it! :done: In reality of course I'm sure it'd be different...but this was 1980's TV. ;)

They just speed it up a bit in Vice. It must start to break you mentally, watching endless people commit suicide infront of you, seeing all the drug dealers, pimps, hookers.. You have to get to the point where it feels like you're not even making a dent eventually.

I just liked the earlier style, sizzle, color, and excitement of "MV". I get tired of things that get too "real", and are dark and depressing all the time. I'm like, I'll turn on the news (or go to work...as I work with troubled kids) if I want to see that. :rolleyes: I want a little bit of fantasy or an "escape" with my entertainment. ;)

Watched this quite weak - and this was written by Walter Kurtz who wrote "Acopalypse Now"?!

They used the same song from Simply Red a year after it appeared in the credits of Season 2's "Trust Fund Pirates " :D

I 'll go against the grain here. In my book this episode falls under "pretty darn awesome" category. Sure, it's not the best Miami Vice has to offer, but there is just something special about that episode - it is permeated with that classic 80s B-movie vibe ( hmm, everything that has Reb Brown in it usually is). I just love it! The episode itself is worth an 8, but the score (both by Jan Hammer and other performers) gets a 10 from me! As for Hammer, his music always top notch, but here he really outshone himself

The standoff between Crockett and Reb is entertaining and intense, also some funny banters between C & T throughout the episode. "You got something against my legs?" Always makes me smile.

I really liked Crockett's wardrobe in this one. Especially the attire he wore at the church.

Best thing about this episode was that we saw filming of the episode when we were there in February 1987 :cool:

one of my least favorite episode's up through season 3 . Along with "Duty and Honor" this one was moving into the dark nihilistic feeling, with quite a bit of weirdness thrown in.

 

actually rewatching it i half expected to see Tubbs with a beard for a moment. would fit in with season 4 and 5. story is not that bad. Hammer's music saves it. Strange to me that they reused "Heaven" from Simply Red, used in Trust Fund Pirates the previous season. With all the great 80s songs and singers they didn't use, strange they would re-use a song.

 

i also realized Reb Brown was in an old episode of Happy Days i remember. weird.

One of my lesser watched episodes. If I'm ever in the mood for an episode that reminds me of a cheap 80s action flick, I'll watch it.

However, it's just kind of dull.

On the plus side, the action is good and Izzy is back. The end scene feels like it should've been the end of the season.

S3 really does run out of steam towards the end.

6/10
