  • It's 70's Miami Vice in San Francisco!

    10
    When you get the director of Superman and Lethal Weapon then this all adds up to a great episode to watch as it has all the elements that make up a very watchable police story from crooked parole officers to shady looking criminals speaking and dressed in those classic 70's clothes complete with sunglasses and a dubious moustache that only top shows like this and for us Brits The Sweeney can still can pull off. Keller seems all the more a 70's yuppie with a touch of 007 in this episode and maybe a forerunner to Miami Vice (with Crockett also an undercover cop) driving his Porsche & having come back from a skiing vacation only to be put on assignment on his return. Although Stone is not in it much the stand out comedy moment has to be when Stone hits Keller to further authenticate his undercover role.moreless
