Crimes are did in spectacular style and Crockett is in love with a fancy lady who doesn’t seem to understand how to prioritise others. MIAMI.
As they’re wont to do, Miami Vice follows some bummer episodes with the mostly goofy Made for Each Other.
A hot-shot cop destroys everything in The Maze. From start to finish, the main theme of this episode seems to be “cops just fuck things up.”
I’ve been super lax this week and owe you a post, so how about a Happy Miami Vice Halloween! Though honestly, due to the era it was from and the seriousness (in a way) it presented itself, Miami Vice never had a “Halloween” episode over it’s five seasons. No real holiday episodes at all, honestly. If you go searching the Miami Vice wiki for mention of masks and costumes, because it’s always possible that in your multiple viewings of the show you somehow missed a Halloween episode, all you find…
Miami Vice is unique in how it takes on themes, and Rites of Passage is a decent look at the line between protecting family and allowing them agency.
