  • Setting: 1980s Miami.

  • Intro: Well done. A typical end of one mission before the next.
  • Story: You see them craft their way in and build their identity. You witness the successes, the lucky deals and the mistakes. However, what is special is that you get to know them, cops and criminals, on a personal level. That way, it's really easy to understand what is happening on a human level.
