The picture quality is fine( although the pilot is a bit dodgy ) Don't worry that the titles are rough looking - as the actual episodes look good. I don't see any reason to moan about any aspect of the package. If you're looking for a crime drama that has a cool vibe, lots of action, and a distinct flavour, you'll love Miami Vice. Also, if you have a thing for 80s style, you'll enjoy it even more.
Miami Vice is the American TV series that was the brainchild of Michael Mann who has gone on to carve out an impressive film director career in which he now ranks high on the Hollywood raider for some of the excellent films he has put together in the last twenty years.
However in 1984, Mann put together a police series with a difference. Up until that point there had been a number of popular cop shows in the states including Starsky & Hutch, Cagney & Lacey, Hill Street Blues, T J Hooker and Chips to name but a few. Mr Mann's police series was to take cop drama to new heights by introducing a style and rhythm that would include featuring hit songs of the era and the latest catwalk fashions. Thus Miami Vice was born.
The stars of Vice have much to play in the success of the show. Don Johnson was up until that point a jobbing actor who had had a string of unsuccessful pilot shows under his belt. His role as the well tanned, cream suit wearing, chain smoking Sonny Crockett together with his prize Ferrari Daytona, his gold rolex and pet alligator Elvis made him one of the most recognisable people in the world at the time. Phillip Michael Thomas played equal measure as the cool, smooth, sassy, sharply dressed Riccado Tubbs. The two heros are supported by a small cast of decent actors who remain with the show from start to finish. Some recognition goes to Edward James Olmos who is outstanding as the humourless, no-nonsence Marty Castillo (boss to Crockett & Tubbs) complete with an undertaker's wardrobe and a face like a mexican bandit about to kill you - a man of very few words!Read more ›

The worst quality DVD I have ever bought. I didn't expect HD from an 80's series but this is frankly awful. I watched this back in the day on TV and that was way better quality. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Amazon Customer
