One of the most popular television shows of the 1980s, Miami Vice helped define the fashion and music of the period while simultaneously maintaining a high quality police drama standard. The show is famous for its pastel colours and bright south Florida settings, which serve to counteract the sleaze its main characters often had to deal with. Sonny and Rico are two cops who work undercover for the Miami Police Department. They must balance their myriad personal problems with the difficulty of being undercover in some of Miami's most rotten criminal businesses. Luckily, upbeat 80s music and their own personal sense of cool help. Miami Vice made a star out of Don Johnson, who eventually won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Sonny, and supporting star Edward James Olmos (as a police captain) won both a Golden Globe and an Emmy. Miami Vice is a fascinating cultural document of the 1980s as well as an effective and exciting cop show.

"Prodigal Son" was a stunning standalone two-episode movie with Crockett and Tubbs pursuing Colombian drug lords all the way to New York, and the centre of world finance, and to America's own involvement in the drug economy. This unprecedented epic was possibly the series' zenith.
"Out Where Buses Don't Run" was a poem on obession, bitterly poignant.
"Back in the World" brought back the ghosts of the Vietnam War, and US covert operations.
The influence of Miami Vice can still be felt today. It is no exaggeration to say that it quite literally changed the way television was made. For the first time, a TV show effectively had no budgetary constraints -this was no shoestring affair, but a massive, revolutionary approach, and you could tell (Each episode had a budget of $1million plus; D.Johnson was paid a staggering $60,000 per episode, over twenty years ago!!). It even resonated in the film industry, and it did no harm to Michael Mann's career.
The acting was always good, particularly in these early series, and the leads were fluid, natural and worked well together. The same goes for the rest of the cast, who all knew just what they were about.Read more ›
Definitely a good buy.
