Storyline

Crockett and Tubbs are investigating the murders of prostitutes which appears to be the work of a sadist. They discover that the killer is a Chilean police official. They try to arrest him but someone from the government gets him out. It's obvious that the government man and the Chilean have something going on. So they try to find out what it is.

Has it where it counts

With a name like 'Baseballs of Death' (silly though it is), one can't be blamed for assuming this'd be about, y'know, baseball. I mean, look at hos many other sports have already been used on the show: jai alai, basketball, grand prix, football.

Turns out it's a euphemism for cluster bombs, and this is another tale of gunrunning to third-world conflicts. It plays out according to Miami Vice formula; the team (all of them, not just Crockett and Tubbs)happen on a no-good Chilean with DEA ties and run down all leads until the big chase scene. But it moves, and proves an engaging episode.

For a wildly uneven season, this is terra firma.

7/10
