The final part of Tread Perilously's Assignment: Miami sees Erik and Justin watching "Tale of the Goat," a season two episode of Miami Vice that explores voodoo -- or at least a mid-1980s understanding of it. Tubbs is amused when Crockett warns him about the voodoo believed by Haitian druglord Papa Legba and his followers. Even when Legba appears to rise from the dead, Tubbs continues to doubt until forced to become a zombie himself. Or something.
Erik and Justin discuss the unavoidable racism, their poor understanding of voodoo, loud clothing of the 1980s, Live and Let Die and Edward James Olmos's special style of acting. And despite Justin's well-known dislike of executive producer Michael Mann, he finds things to enjoy about the episode.
