This is probably the poorest MV season. Nevertheless suave double act Crockett and Tubbs are immersed in the unpredictable Miami underworld to crowd-pleasing effect. Crockett still lives on his yacht with Elvis, and still had a dazzling propensity towards pastel casual wear.

Originally, I was nervous about spending thirty pounds on this series (season 4) because I was worried that the departure of the original writers from the show, (including creators Anthony Yerkovich) would result in a poor MV season. However, the result of the free-lance writer efforts are a mixed bag of erratic episodes that are all over the map.

The season opener "Contempt of Court" is good and it proves that even after twenty years MV still packs a punch. By the fourth episode in, however, the season gets pretty much derailed beginning with "The Big Thaw" about a Rastafarian Michael Jackson reggae singer preserved in a cryogenic sleep chamber and then there's the infamous "Missing Hours" featuring James Brown and a whacked-out plot revolving around Trudy's alien abduction and it's time to call in Mulder and Scully instead of Crockett and Tubbs.

If Vice hadn't already "Jumped the Shark" at that point, the introduction of Sheena Easton in the following episode "Like A Hurricane" as Sonny's recurring love-interest Caitlin Davies is enough to make you shriek like nails screeching on chalkboard when Sonny's lovey-dovey side reduces the episode into a series of mushy soap-opera escapades and inevitable wedding bells ring while poor Rico is left on the sidelines.

There's a pretty decent selection of alternative music featuring tracks by artists like Yello, Love and Rockets, the Hooters, Billy Idol, Iggy Pop, U2 and Peter Gabriel peppered throughout.

Another great addition to the collection if you have bought them season by season. Another amaray cased box set as are the re released seasons box sets. I'm assuming that the carded box sets have been discontinued. Only really important if you're an absolute completist. Spliler alert! Crockett gets married! Plenty lf action and an 80's soundtrack to die for. Story wise a little slacker than seasons 1 and 2 - I believe that they had different writers for the last couple of seasons. Still worthwhile and kicks the ass of a great many of its contemporaries. Season 5 next...

It was clear towards the end of Season 3 of Miami Vice that the show was running out of steam. Stories were becoming repetitive, the acting was more wooden, and attention to detail in terms of locations and music was becoming more limited. Season 4 is a very bizarre run of episodes that can be best described as a roller-coaster ride for viewers. The repetitive storytelling of the end of season 3 was rectified, but I'm sure the stories that are told in season 4 were not what viewers had in mind when the Miami Vice credits rolled.

It must be said, season 4 does contain some brilliant Miami Vice episodes. Death and the Lady, Baseballs of Death, Indian Wars and Deliver us from Evil are all classic Miami Vice episodes. Season 4 also boasts what is by far the best season finale, and one of the greatest episodes of the series, Mirror Image. There are also a whole host of generic standard episodes thrown in the mix which make worthwhile viewing.

However, for every good episode of season 4, there is a truly abysmal episode. There are episodes that are abysmal due to their ridiculous nature and some that are just abysmal because they are boring. Missing Hours, The Big Thaw and Cows of October all fit into the ridiculous category. The fact that any of these episodes made it into production showed the lack of vision and commitment executives had for Miami Vice at the time. Their existence is mind boggling and I would love to hear the justification from those that committed to their creation at the time. This really is when Miami Vice jumped the shark. Joining the ridiculous episodes are also the boring episodes which include Like a Hurricane, Hell Hath no Fury and a Bullet for Crockett, which is just a clip show.
