    This is the only appearence of Frank Zappa on tv in a dramatic roll. This is also a Miami Vice episode where Crockett did not get his man (Zappa). The plotline was clever and Zappa's performance as a major drug kingpin was low key and demonstrated Zappa's ability to give dimension to the character he was portraying. Zappa, in case you have lived in outer space for the last 30 years was the most inovative jazz-rock composer / artist ever. Some of his work consisted of borderline off color humor intended to draw the younger audience and expose them to progressive jazz. Zappa produced some films of his own, but except for performing voice overs for annimated shows like the Simpsons and Ren & Stimpy, he rarely appeared on TV and usually as himself. If your a Zappa fan, this episode is for you.moreless
