  • Probably the dumbest plotline of the series

    I find it interesting that the episodes Don Johnson tend not to be in are among the worst of the series. In this case, I'm not so sure that Johnson himself didn't remove himself from the episode after he read the script. He's barely in it and that was a very wise move on his part.



    By this season, it was becoming more apparent that Johnson was the sole star of the show even though he was always in first position. Here, the theme reminds me of the classic play " Six Xharcters in Search of An Author". Whenever Vice veers from it's central theme, they bomb big time because then they are no different than Chips or the A-Team. Vice is supposed to be cool, not corny.



    A cheer within a jeer is the spoof of a showdown featuring Izzy set to Ennio Morricone's theme to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Had they used a series regular, it would have made the show even worse. With Izzy, it made sense.moreless
