Trivia

The car explosion scene at the end of the pilot episode of this series was filmed in an airfield in Pearland, Texas, much to the surprise of several Pearland residents. It was filmed around midnight and the explosion was heard for quite some distance. The remains of the car were left on the property for a week or two before being towed away, offering Pearland residents and other passersby a look at it as it sat in full view of Interstate 35 which runs through the center of town. This was at least the second time Pearland was used as a location for filming a movie or television show, following Urban Cowboy and preceding Arlington Road. See more »

You mean it wasn't a parody?
23 May 2005 | by nickgreeneSee all my reviews

For years I have wondered whether this series was meant to be a parody. I couldn't believe that a show could seriously be that bad. It finally occurred to me to check IMDb to learn more about the show. I guess I was wrong.

This very bad knock-off of Miami Vice was painful to watch, even worse than a Michale Pare movie. The writing was predictable and the acting was horrible. If you have a choice between watching old episodes of this show and being devoured by rats, take the rats.

Seen by today's standards, the cutting edge (for the time) Miami Vice looks pretty hokey. Houston Knights would look hokey by any standards.
