Geeez, finally. here's the scoop:

"ok, they are taking forever with these sets. anyway, its finally here. i think season two was the best season overall, but season three had some of the best episodes; unfortunately, it had some pretty bad ones as well. here's the quick and dirty on each episode:
When irish eyes are crying: the season premier episode. i was a little let down after the spectacular season premier of season 2 (the prodigal son). this is a very good episode though with liam neeson as the IRA terrorist. also, an important episode because crockett gets his ferrari blown up (its a classic mv moment; the expression on crocket's face lol)
stone's war: the stone eps are always good. crocket's reporter friend from viet nam returns to try and take down g. gordon liddy (yea, good luck with that pal!)
kill shot: a ho-hum episode about an impotent jai alai player who gets black mailed by drug dealers. nothing to write home about...
walk alone: ok, one of the best episodes of mv, imho. tubbs has to go undercover in a prison to get the guys that killed his girlfriend in a club. larry fishburne plays a guard. great music in this one and one of the more brutal eps of mv...
the good collar: a ho hum episode again. crockett identifies with a star football player that gets caught up in the drug world. nuthin' special...
shadow in the dark: ok, again one of my fav. eps. dark, moody, dreamlike and strange. a cat burgler goes after people's pants and ear-rings and freaks crockett and a detective out as they both try to develop the mindset of the cat burgler to catch him. GREAT scene with castillo and crockett sitting in a coffee shop together :)
el viejo: i really like this episode featuring willie nielson. has bon jovi song, wanted, dead or alive and flies on the windscreen by depache mode. also features the little reservior dogs geek, steve buscimi. great music, action and plot...
better living through chemistry: i really like this ep too in which tubbs' old partner comes back from NY for a little revenge on tubbs. a genius chemist figures out how to synthesize cocaine. hummm, all they need is a guina pig now. hey, is that izzie??
baby blues: ok, this ep [...]. something about a black market for babies and a dirty lawyer. i only watched it maybe twice, when i've watched the other eps many, many times...
streetwise: another [...] ep featuring the clown that can't act from tombstone (bill paxton). about an undercover cop who is in love with a hooker. this can't end well...
down for the count: sad, dreery 2 part ep. in which zito is killed. didn't really care for these eps and didn't like to see zito go :(
the savage: i like this episode about an assassin and his handler that have been brought in to take out a communist sympathizer. crockett and castillo find some help from an old viet nam friend who was trying to track down the assassin in nam. Michael wright is great as the assassin who has a nasty habit of killing hookers along with his "legit" i.e., "sanctioned" targets. good music and ending...
theresa: crockett's dr. girlfriend (helena bonham carter) is also a junkie. too bad for you crockett! she compromises his case and i.a. goes after crockett, thinking he's dirty. he has to prove himself by taking down brad dourif! a good ep
an afternoon plane: ok, really good ep. in which calderon's son, john leguizmo, comes back to get a little revenge by tricking tubbs and his new lady (also a dr.) to stay on an island that has no guns on it. good music and good acting in an ep in which tubbs takes on 3 stone killers. but why did tubbs' girl think she could help with that??
lend me an ear: great ep. has the song, lend me an ear by the waterboys. crockett and tubbs try to put surveillance on a money launderer and enlist the help of a free-lance bug-guy, who, unfortunately, plays both sides of the fence...
by hooker or by crook: interesting ep. featuring melanie griffith and george takie. melanie is a heidi fliess type madame and crockett uses her to go after sulu. she comes to his boat to tell him what a [...] he is. a decent ep...
viking bikers from hell: ahh, one of my all time fav eps featuring a lot of great new mv music. crockett and tubbs track down, with the help of izzie, the leader of a motorcycle gang who is seeking revenge against the person who took out his friend. he uses the, um, process of elimination to make sure he gets his man. tubbs gets shot in this ep...
everybody's in showbiz: i kinda liked this ep. about a guy sonny put in the clink but who happens to be an artist (writes plays and acts in them). the guy steals a briefcase from a crack dealer and apparently, the crack dealer's entire business is in the briefcase. needless to say, he's not amused. kind of a funny ending as crockett and tubbs get duped...
heroes in the revolution: WTF?!?! where did this s#$) come from? something about gina's mom and a revolution. one of the worst mvs in my opinion...
ok, i left out a couple eps, so sue me. maybe someone could fill in the gaps. anyway, now that i look back on that season, i realize it had a few of my favorite all time eps. the bad episodes bring the season down a little though. hope this guide was helpful to you pal!"

"I am new with this show since I never watched it in the 80's since I was pretty young. I bought the first 2 seasons and I thought they were cool and sexy but didn't make me say "that was awesome". They were sometimes cool yet cheesey. This season however is 100% cool with great stories, great drama and top notch car chases and shoot-outs. There's even so many appearances by well known actors that it's hard to list them all.
You have Wesley Snipes as a pimp, Bill Paxton as an undercover cop, Helen Bohen Carter as a doctor Crockett is dating who just happens to do drugs behind his back, Steve Buscemi, Charles S. Dutton, Willy Nelson, Liam Neeson, Viggo Mortensen, Benicio Del Toro and Brad Dourif. There's also drama when a member of their team dies. Larry is killed by boxing promoters while undercover as a boxer/trainer and it's made to look like a drug overdose. Crockett and Tubbs have to clear his name so he's not remembered as a junky. Forget the new movie, it's lame and dead in the water next to how entertaining and well done the show is."
