Editorial Reviews

Fired after one too many clashes with his bosses at the Drug Enforcement Administration, maverick cop Nick Slaughter winds up in Key Mariah, Florida. It looks like a nice quiet spot, just the place for a little leisurely private investigating; but it's not long before Nick starts to see Key Mariah in a whole new light. Aided and abetted by local girl Sylvie Gerard, the former DEA man soon discovers there's no escape from dead bodies and drug runners...the only difference is this time the scenery and the girls are a whole lot prettier!

I really am enjoyng these DVDs.

It strongly influenced my decorating style (palm tree paintings, beautiful colors, wooden shutters, and white stucco.)

As someone else observes, there are no mountains in the Florida Keys, but that just adds to the show's cheesy charm.

This show is a pleasure to get re-acquainted with. I didn't really watch it on television as often as I might have liked back in the 90s, but 11:30 was a bit late for me (still is!). A friend, back in those days, referred to CBS's "Crime Time after Prime Time" shows- most of which had male protagonists called Nick- as "Nick at Night"! I would ask, "Which one is it tonight? Nick the vigilante Judge, Nick the vampire cop, or Nick the hippie private eye?" Well, Nick the Hippie Private Eye was always my favorite. The show is fun, serious at the appropriate moments (without becoming too serious), and funny most of the time without descending into parody. Rob Stewart and Carolyn Dunn are rare treasures. He is wasted in guest shots; he should have his own regular show, period.
He can carry one, easily. She could do the same, and her O.T.T. serious Sylvie is a perfect foil for ne'er-do-well, ladykiller Nick. Tropical Heat- or Sweating Bullets, as I first knew it and prefer to call it- is not unlike Magnum, P.I. (I've been known to refer to Nick Slaughter as the low-rent Magnum!), and if you like Magnum, you'll probably like Sweating Bullets for the same reasons. Would that Sweating Bullets had been on as long as Magnum, P.I.!

It is like some sort of weird, budget, low brow lite mix of Magnum PI, Moonlighting, Miami Vice, and soft porn.
Presumably it filled a void when all those other great shows had just ended their runs in the late 80's. Nick Slaughter delivers his lines like a mix of David Addison, Hawkeye Pierce and Mike Hammer. It is total escapism and because of this and it's mix of influences I enjoy sitting down, relaxing, and watching an episode or two when I just want to switch off my brain for a while. The new character Spider in season two is an annoying little knob, the guy playing bartender in the first season was better. This shows weaknesses are it's strengths, so if you can get over the low budget and some dodgy acting (Nick and Sylvie are OK though), you can sink in to it and have some fun.

The quality of the DVD image is not that good, it was originally filmed on video by the looks of it and compressed to DVD. The audio on the first episode was only coming out of one channel. So overall it is probably a bit over priced as a DVD set, but that didn't stop me buying it cause I knew I was going to have fun. This show could easily diassapear wthout a trace so best to grab it while you can if you want it is my suggestion.

If you're fond of lightweight, comedic detective shows set in tropical climes (think Magnum or VIP or the uber-kitschy Acapulco HEAT), you'll like this one. The transfers are a bit pixelated, but who cares? (At 8 shows per disk, that's hardly surprising.) My wife and I particularly love watching it in winter, when the fictional Key Mariah looks like a little bit of heaven. As someone else observes, there are no mountains in the Florida Keys, but that just adds to the show's cheesy charm. (It was shot, I believe, in a different location each season--Mexico, Israel (!), and South Africa.)

Finally Tango released all the episodes. I ordered 2 years ago the first season hopping that they will release the rest of the episodes and now here they are. I already posted my order of the complete pack.
The episodes doesn't contain Portuguese subtitles but I understand the English and the most important to me is to watch again the other episodes of Nick and Sylvie adventures, with the presence of Spider Garvin.
Thanks Tango and thanks Amazon.

Great and funny series about detective Nick Slaughter and his partner (and boss) Sylvie Girard. It's not for demanding audience. It's for relaxing! It's Great relax (don't think, just watch). Amazing tropical nature, wonderful girls, bad boys, more girls, Nick in shirt...

I like this DVD, although i miss english subtitles and quality of DVD video (screen) could be better. Go Nick and Silvie, go..

My English is very poor but I can say that Tropical Heat is a very funny series and is one of the best memory that I bring, even if you audio in Spanish, I have decided to buy it because I think it's a series that must be saved forever.

I used to watch this show in the early 90s when it was part of Crime Time after Prime Time. I love the laid-back style, scenery and architecture. (It was filmed in Mexico, not the Keys.) It strongly influenced my decorating style (palm tree paintings, beautiful colors, wooden shutters, and white stucco.)

If nothing else, "Nick Slaughter" in a wife-beater or an open shirt is worth the purchase price, and there is plenty of scenery for the men, as well. It's a light-hearted escape that will leave you feeling like you've spent a few hours in an adirondack chair on the beach, umbrella drink in hand. I highly recommend it!
