This was theoretically Don Johnson’s splashy return to television after his hit series “Miami Vice”. Once again he is playing a law enforcement official – this time he is a police investigator, who is great at his job, but lousy in his personal life. Working in the elite Special Investigations Unit he gets the job done with his street smarts and disarms people with his humour. Not as good or edgy as “Miami Vice”, but a decent watch for fans of the Johnson or the genre.
