Following a bullet-ridden, night-time opening, "The Maze" follows a lone, undercover Tubbs into a run-down apartment complex, besieged by gun-toting, cop-killing youths.
"Miami Vice" was always a melting-pot of talent. This episode contains an early performance by a young Ving Rhames. Garcelle Beauvais ("NYPD Blue") plays the beautiful Gabriella.
The episode gives Philip Michael Thomas an opportunity to show off his impressive vocal talents. Thomas delivers "Living The Book Of My Life" as he begins his perilous task of infiltrating the apartment building.
This is a tense, exciting episode in which we see the mirror-side of Miami's high-gloss sheen - away from the affluence are people living in abject poverty.
The Police's "Tea In The Sahara" is a memorable track from this story.
9 out of 10.
