Product Description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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.

Miami Vice is, without a doubt, the greatest TV detective series ever made and it is doubtful it will ever be surpassed. The pilot is probably one of the best ever, as everything is pretty much in place in this very first episode: The attitude, the music, the cars, the crocodile, the clothes, the boat, the women and the attitude. It is fast moving and highly recommended. The only glaring absentee from the pilot is Lt. Castillo (Edward James Olmos), but he joined the series a little later. The Golden Triangle is perhaps not the best episode(s) to choose, but is a bit of a curate's egg as it was the only episode of the series written or co-written by Michael Mann. However, on the whole, it is definitely good to have this DVD. It would also be great if episodes from series 2 and 3 are released, because that it is when the show really got in to its stride. Highly recommended to all fans of the show and of slick cop shows generally.

This was easily the most stylish show ever on TV. The 2 feature length episodes on here are the PILOT episode and THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE. The Pilot episode used Phil Collins' hit IN THE AIR TONIGHT to classic effect, a pure Vice moment as the black Ferrari rolls through Miami at night. The Golden Triangle has Crockett and Tubbs posing as Hotel security to track down more crooks - more great music and Vice action. This DVD is highly recommended. I hope they release more of these.

Slick, sassy and uncut, this is your chance to (again) see the very, very first episode of, the by far most characteristic show of the eighties, Miami Vice.
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!

Sonny Crockett: "You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun."
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.

What's most impressive about Miami Vice's feature-length pilot episode is how well it still holds up today. 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.

Don Johnson was at a peak in the mid 80's to early 90's because of this series. The plots are a little corny by today's standards, but the sheen and neon edges which are director MICHAEL MANN'S trademark are what really make this worth watching...again and again
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..
Can't wait!

In the 1980s this series was something brand new and incredible,the style,the cars,the attitude,the tough cool cops.My favourite series ever.Don Johnson played the part of Crockett perfectly and had a deep side to his thinking underneath the tough cop part,him and Tubbs really turned around Miamis crime.Brilliant series.

I was too young to really enjoy miami vice when it came on tv but I am really glad i saw it on dvd. It is an exciting fast paced well scripted show with great production values. I hope the rest of the series comes out on dvd soon. As good as any action movie out there.
