In the penultimate episode of season 2 of Miami Vice, we started off not really liking Trust Fund Pirates. But, by the end of our run down we all changed our minds. The episode follows Jackson, the successor to one of our favorite guest stars Glenn Fry, who played Jimmy in Smugglers Blues. Jackson comes out of retirement to help Tubbs and Crockett close in on some yuppie pirates. With a major twist at the end, Trust Fund Pirates is a sleeper hit.
John is pumped for Lynyrd Skynyrd in the music segment. Dominic is rooting for Jum Jum and would love to get him a woman like Fluffy. Melissa never trusted that Lani and for good reason. All in all, you get a great show and a fantastic episode of Vice.
