Some episodes are true classics (the opener with Jeff Fahey as a weapons distributor) the episode guest starring Lou Diamond Philipps as a cop, and a classic with John Glover as a former cop who is a surveillance sweeper (by the far funniest and least gritty episode of the season-straight out of a season 1 episode). Biker Boys from Hell is quite bad, but you will get a few poor episodes in every MV season due to the fact that different people directed each episode.
Season 3 is further compounded by a weak season opener, and even weaker season close. On top of that, there are multiple stories re-used in the same season, for example, Theresa and By Hooker By Crook; both feature Crockett, falling for a lady, who is somehow involved in illegal activity.
Add on top of this an overall laziness on the part of Jan Hammer to think up any new material, with a few exceptions, and you have a very average season of TV. However, I will say for the record that his score in El Viejo is absolutely brilliant and one of the best of the whole series - if only that much energy had been channeled into other episodes.
So overall, Miami Vice lost its steam in this season. Don't get me wrong, this season is not as offensive as what follows in the 4th year. However, this season is often fairly dull.
Many Irish and British viewers will struggle with the season opener though - even for 1980s US TV this is one of the most simplistic Hollywood attempts at addressing Northern Irish politics I have ever seen, as Gina falls for the loveable Provo played by Liam Neeson, and the good guys are forced to deal with an evil doubledealing aristocratic Brit. Its absolute cobblers from start to finish.
And Viking Bikers from Hell is hilariously bad, but in an entertaining manner
