Tread Perilously — Miami Vice: Missing Hours

tpmTread Perilously returns with Erik and Justin in “Assignment: Miami.” For four weeks, the duo will take on pastels, neon rods and the worst Miami Vice can throw at them. In week one, they face Missing Hours, notable as many fans’ pick as the worst episode of the show.

Officer Big Booty Trudy (as she’s called on her desk placard) appears to have been abducted by aliens while investigating the death of a man who jumped through a shop window. Crocket and Tubbs visit James Brown, who also appears in Trudy’s hallucination while visiting a houseboat. Chris Rock plays a file clerk with an interest in UFOlogy and Edward James Olmos grumbles.

Erik and Justin discuss the close encounters scale, the film Death Drug and the intoxicating effect of the episode. We also learn Justin’s real feelings on Michael Mann.
