From Amazon.co.uk

To hear the opening beats of Jan Hammer's percussive, propulsive Miami Vice theme is to be instantly transported back to 1984. But this groundbreaking series, with its cinematic sensibility, cool clothes, and killer soundtrack is no mere blast from the past. It still rocks. This three-disc set would be worthless if it didn't. Music was an integral part of Miami Vice's hip vibe. The soundtrack propelled the stories and established the mood like no series before it. So the first thing you want to know is: Have the music rights been secured for this DVD release? In the pilot episode, does Phil Collins's "In the Air Tonight" still play ominously as vice undercover cops Crockett and Tubbs speed toward a bust? Does Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" serenade Sonny and Gina on his boat in the episode "One-Eyed Jack?" And what would the benchmark episode, "Smuggler's Blues" be without Glenn Frey's instant classic? From the Rolling Stones on a boombox to Elvis Presley singing "Rubberneckin'" on a TV, Vice's cutting-edge soundtrack has been preserved and honed in 5.1 surround sound glory.

Miami Vice made stars out of Don Johnson, Philip Michael Thomas, and Edward James Olmos, who won an Emmy as the intense, taciturn Lt. Castillo (watching him bust some martial arts moves in "Golden Triangle" is like Yoda cutting lose in Attack of the Clones), but the first season also offers time-capsule glimpses of actors on the cusp of stardom, including a pre-L.A. Law Jimmy Smits in the pilot, a pre-Crime Story Dennis Farina in "One-Eyed Jack," and a pre-Moonlighting Bruce Willis in "No Exit." Miami Vice put a neon sheen on cop-show convention. Its fashion sense (pastel suits, no belt, no socks), and the brilliantly employed freeze frames are still arresting. Miami Vice was a TV watershed, and this DVD set does it full justice. --Donald Liebenson

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. It even resonated in the film industry, and it made Michael Mann. Without Miami Vice, there would have been no Manhunter, Heat or Collateral, to name but a few.

So what was Miami Vice? Well it was, first and foremost, a cop show, set in 1980s Miami, based around the Vice squad, with the leads usually as undercover operatives, dealing with drugs, gambling, prostitution etc. Let us clear one thing up straight away: despite many comments about Miami Vice not being serious, and, say the new 2006 film being 'harder hitting', the reality was that the original series was as grim as it gets. This is not a tongue in cheek series, and it hit very hard indeed; no punches are pulled here. There are occasional jabs of witty dialoge, and the first appearance of Elvis the alligator is deeply amusing, but it's generally about as much of a comedy as The Sweeney. It may be set in the hedonistic atmosphere of 1980s Miami, but the first couple of series of Miami Vice were dark, violent, and laced with tragedy, personal and wider.

The acting was always good, particularly in these eary 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. Don Johnson will always be remembered as epitomising 1980s style, and to be fair, he looked annoyingly sensational in a selection of white, peach, blue and darker suits, with lots of other jackets, trousers etc making appearances.

Having watched just over half the episodes on men and motors i went and brought the boxset it is absoloutly amazing with a good solid storyline and also an amazing cast of good actors. This is not a program for children as it contains adult themes. But however i have to say this remains my favourite tv show. Bring on series 2 and 3 and so on.

Brilliant season shame it dropped in quality after the first season as second was good third was garbage forth was nothing really of note and fifth was OK but think the damage was done it had to end but in my eyes should of really stopped after the first episode of season three. Any way where in an era where your Miami vices , a teams and knight riders are seen as to tame for viewers of today but those seasons also do what i think can not be matched and that is the way they build the cast as a family each as good and interesting as the next and the arrival of Edward James Olmos completes that when he arrives as lieutenant Castillo which is funny as he only really say like five lines an episode. Do me a favor buy watch and will not be dissapointed with so many must watch episodes including brothers keeper , one-eye Jack,Evan and Lombard. £10 you wont regret it anything lower you be fool not to have also did I forget to mention Crockett owns a pet Alligator named Elvis mad I know.

It's finally here after the endless years of waiting! Yes the first season of the definitave 80's cop show has been released on DVD in all its former glory. This box features all 22 episodes from the pilot film through to the cliff-hanging 'Lombard'. Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas shot to super stardom in the 80's as Miami's best loved 'undercover' Vice cops. Many series and films have tried to emulate this ground-breaking series but none have ever topped it.The clothes, cars and especially the music all help to boost the excitement! The boxset itself comes in a rather nice slipcase with the logo and our heroes embossed on it. Eight discs are all neatly packaged with approx three episodes on each ( save for extras and the pilot which is split into two episodes for this presentation).The only things that would have made this boxset better would have been an episode guide booklet ( instead we get the 'playback catalougue') and some pictures (ex.24 seasons). That said , this is a terrific box to start the Miami Vice collection, lets hope thats seasons 2 to 5 make it onto dvd too!

Great music, clothes, cars, women.........so good to watch again, harks me back to when I was in awe of these dude's and their life styles. Yes it looks dated now but that is part of it's charm, these two were seriously cool......that scene with them driving at night to Phil Collins 'in the air' is just first class, an iconic scene if you like? Love it, even though it makes me feel old!

If you thought that Miami Vice was all about clothes, cars and cops then you would be right, add in the music and you have the makings of a cult classic. This box set gives you all of the first series all 22 episodes on eight disks. Set against the seedy and sexy Miami underworld we follow Vice Cops Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) and Rico Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) as they try to deal with all of Miami's drug dealers, pimps and criminals. Miami Vice was groundbreaking for it's time with each episode costing over 1 million dollars to make which was unheard of for a TV programme. Even more interesting was the amount they spent on clothes for each episode a staggering 100,000 dollars. Executive producer Michael Mann said at the time that he wanted the clothes to be like a character in the show. When first released in the 80's Miami Vice was seen as the epitome of cool with the style of the characters making its way onto the catwalks and everyday life. The music in Miami Vice was seen by many as what made the show with artists like Phil Collins, Tina Turner, INXS and U2 all featured on the soundtrack. Look out for guest appearances by Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Jimmy Smits (NYPD Blue) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard). As well as the first series you also get special features like the Style of Vice, the Music of Vice and the Vibe of Vice all of which give you a real insight into the whole Miami Vice scene. So if you're feeling all nostalgic, forget your socks and your razor and get all your old sports jackets out again as this is the perfect series for you.
