Three episodes of the hit Eighties crime series. In 'Pilot' - the first ever episode - undercover Miami Vice cop Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) finds himself paired with New Yorker Ricardo Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) in order to apprehend a Colombian drug smuggler. In 'The Golden Triangle', Crockett and Tubbs see a new side to Lieutenant Castillo following a drugs related hit. 'The Golden Triangle Part 2' sees Castillo attempting to apprehend drug baron General Lao Li without harming hostage May Ling.
In the 1980s, in those heady days before the '87 stock market crash brought the whole thing down, the television series Miami Vice was a symbol of the times. The brainchild of former Starsky and Hutch scriptwriter-turned-director Michael Mann, riding high on the back of the critical success of Manhunter, his adaptation of the first Hannibal Lecter novel Red Dragon, Miami Vice provided smart, slick and stylish (many would say too stylish) entertainment as it followed the career of two cops against an opulent Miami, Florida backdrop. Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) was the local cop-on-the-edge. Tough, honourable, charming and cool (he did, after all, live on boat with a pet alligator named Elvis), he became one of the 80s ultimate style icons. After only a few episodes of the series, men all over the world began to sport white suits (with the sleeves rolled up to the elbows), pastel shirts, 5 o'clock shadows and deck shoes sans socks. Crockett's less charismatic partner Ricardo Tubbs (sorry, Philip Michael Thomas, but it's true) was a transplanted New York beat cop who came to Miami with a score to settle, but ended up staying, charmed by the city's glitz and glamour.
What's most impressive about Miami Vice's feature-length pilot episode is how well it still holds up today. Sure, the script is full of clichés (the opening credits have barely ended before Crockett is getting chewed out by his captain), but the show looks impressively glossy and well produced. It's so well put together, in fact, that even the Phil-Collins-packed soundtrack blends seamlessly into the whole package. Well directed and well acted (especially by Don Johnson, who was born to the part of raffish rogue), it's only let down by the weakness of a storyline designed primarily to introduce us to the characters. Nonetheless, the Miami Vice pilot remains an essential 80s archive piece, demonstrating the triumph of style over substance. --Robert Burrow --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs meet, dislike each other, but are subsequently forced to team up for a common purpose.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you remember the days of pastel colours, synthetic rhytm and bare feat in your espadrillos, get this gem. It was the birth of Miami Vice!
Brenda his ex-wife: "How do you go from this tranquility to that violence?"
Sonny Crockett: "I usually take the Ferrari."
For years we in the UK were secretly laughing at Miami Vice. MV started out in 1984 and what did we have in 1984? Minder? The Professionals?
MV was brilliant, and it still is. Today in the UK we have Holby City and Hotel Babylon - quality stuff! Our American cousins have classics such as The Sopranos, Six feet Under.
Anyhoo, MV was the brainchild of the brillliant director Michael Mann, riding high on the back of the critical success of Manhunter and Thief. Miami Vice provided slick, stylish entertainment as it followed the criminal hunting of two cops. Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) was the cool cop-on-the-edge; Ricardo Tubbs was smooth as silk.

the GOLDEN TRAINGLE episodes (although concluded here), were later followed up on in series 2 , with some stellar acting from Edward James Olsmos (LT CASTILLO). The plot?...watch and find out.
Only four stars because I'm waiting for the BOX SETS, which rumour has it should be here by the end of this year..
