Roberto Duran & CJ Cron

Recommended Posts

What's important here is this:

 

Roberto Duran made a guest appearance in the Miami Vice episode "Payback."  This is the same episode which starred Frank Zappa.  It's a really good episode...I happened to watch it Friday.

 

Duran plays a convicted drug dealer named "Moroto" who blows his brains out in front of Crockett during a prison visit.  

 

The episode, like much of tv at the time, was free of political correctness.  At one point, Crockett asks a drug dealer whatever happen to some go-between and the dealer says something like, "He was an illegal alien.  I feed them to the sharks."

 

If you ever get the chance, check out this episode.  It also features the band X's version of "Soul Kitchen."

My buddy Aaron used to write for Miami Vice. I think he directed a couple too. He was pretty influential in the music they would use. That was his previous background. Was tigh with Michael Mann for a while and he eventually moved to Crime Story.

I think you're referring to Aaron Lipstadt.  I think that's the name.  I believe he directed the episode Payback.  As a director, he would be completely hands on with the music.

 

I am disappointed this information was kept from DR for so long.  I started watching an ep of Crime Story on Friday, too.  But it got late and I fell asleep.  Dennis Farina, of course, was in both Miami Vice and Crime Story.

I might try Miami vice.I already watched all if the Rockford files and almost done with Magnum PI. I miss TV without dudes kissing, although Magnum's shorts were borderline.

Yep that's him. Huge Elvis Costello fan, but also a Yankee fan, so that nullifies that in my book. Good guy, other than the Yankee thing.

Keeping with the straying off topic, I was in a Solvang hotel waiting for a elevator about 10 years ago, and Duran walked up with 2 other guys. It was like WTF is he doing in Solvang, California? And why am I in a elevator with him?

 

He was doing a promo at Chumash Casino - fight night...but to see No Mas up close...just odd...

To wit, there was an episode of Miami Vice called "Evan."  It's commonly considered to be either the best Vice episode or at least in the top 2.

 

It's about another undercover cop on a suicide mission...boozing, challenging people to shoot him and so on.  He came up on the force with Crockett.  They used to be friends.  But this one cop gave another cop a bad time, calling him "faggot this, faggot that," to quote Crockett.  (Very progressive to hear this on something made in 1985)).

 

Anyways, as Crockett tells it to Tubbs, "Turns out he really was gay."  The dude kills himself because he can't handle how that peoples might find out. 

 

So, the suicide mission undercover cop has been blaming himself ever since.  

 

A very good episode.  Recommended.
