Excellent first instalment of a solid two-parter
22 March 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Golden Triangle" is classic "Miami Vice". Starting with Crockett and Tubbs working undercover as hotel security, the opening is both gritty and amusing in equal measure.

When a poolside Crockett poses as a bespectacled, geeky visitor to Miami in order to ensnare a prostitute, the episode really comes alive. Robin Johnson is superb as the reluctant call girl who assists Crockett and Tubbs on their investigations into bad cops offering protection.

This is a really entertaining and event-filled episode. It's rich in atmosphere, has great performances and dialogue and looks superb. The episode reveals a little more about the enigmatic Castillo and ends on a tantalising "To be continued".

Dolly Parton's "Great Balls of Fire" is the icing on the cake.

10 out of 10.
