Joey-freaking-Hardin. We’re in the last of the lost episodes and this isn’t an episode of Miami Vice. Don’t let the open credits fool you, no one associated with Vice would willingly put their name on this episode. This is supposed to be a pilot episode for a spinoff starring the ruiner of TV shows Justin Lazard, but it was never picked up. So forever this episode lives in Miami Vice lore and unfortunately a mandatory watch for season 5.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot of fun at Joey’s expense! We help you get through this weeks episode with style and class, which is more than you can say about the YCU. Dominic and Melissa wonder about Sonny’s computer skills and that crazy knife Baines wields. John just has one question – Why did they put Ray’s hands in his pants?
Its a terrible pilot for YCU and a hilarious episode of Go With The Heat.
