Great addition to any collection. New amaray case edition (Boxset) won't sit well with the previously released carded boxsets on a shelf - but it's a small complaint. If a neat shelf is your thing - then go for the complete boxset in white. Spoiler alert! - gone is Crockets' Daytona in the first episode but the now familiar white Ferrari Testarossa gets a look in early on. Car fanatics should note that the Daytona was a replica based on a Chevy platform but the Testarossa was the real deal. For some bizarre reason the Daytona re-appears again in episode 7: "El Viejo" after being 'blown up' in episode 1: "When Irish Eyes Are Crying"!??... go figure. Recommend.

Was watching this last night (2015), and can never get enough Miami Vice. Cultural icons from the 1980s, creating their own fashions, highlighting music, and doing some great advertising for Miami and Ferarri.

Younger versions of Liam Neeson and Laurence Fishburn appear in an episode each, along with a distant precursor to what we see in 'Criminal Minds" today.

This third series loses much of the fun and look of the first two. Don Johnson no longer wears white suits, pastels or Wayfarers and as the series goes on his hair becomes something Chris Waddle would have liked. To make matters worse, the black convertible Ferrari is traded in for a white solid top and the stories get increasingly cliched and ludicrous. Crockett almost proposes to a doctor who turns out to be a junkie and a few episodes on falls in love with a businesswoman who in fact runs an escort agency. Worth a look, but I'd leave the last couple of seasons well alone.

This is regarded as the season before it went a bit naff, and that's certainly the case. There are plenty of stand out episodes in this third season and once again, a flurry of now legendary guest stars. The show feels a bit more gritty, Crockett's wardrobe gets quite colourful, a young Helena Bonham Carter appears a few times as Crockett's love interest and there is the tragic loss of a regular cast member.

there are some great eps here - especially as the season goes on. One ep -Shadow in the Dark is a dry run for Michael Mann's subsequent Manhunter, there are other standout eps such as Better Living Through Chemistry, or Knock Knocck Who's there featuring a Hispanicized Ian McShane..

Many Irish and British viewers will struggle with the season opener though - even for 1980s US TV this is one of the most simplistic Hollywood attempts at addressing Northern Irish politics I have ever seen, as Gina falls for the loveable Provo played by Liam Neeson, and the good guys are forced to deal with an evil doubledealing aristocratic Brit. Its absolute cobblers from start to finish.

And Viking Bikers from Hell is hilariously bad, but in an entertaining manner

Season 3 of Miami Vice is a fairly mixed bag. The first half of the season is generally good, with great episodes such as El Viejo, Forgive us our Debts, and Down for the Count. However, there is a very different overall feel to this season of Vice compared to the first two seasons. It's generally a darker show, but this is juxtaposed alongside more scenes featuring the fairly annoying Izzy character. Stories are often planted more in reality but they don't seem to have the same excitement and glamour as many episodes in the first two seasons. Boring is a word that probably describes much of Season 3 quite well. It's not bad TV, but it's not great either.
Season 3 is further compounded by a weak season opener, and even weaker season close. On top of that, there are multiple stories re-used in the same season, for example, Theresa and By Hooker By Crook; both feature Crockett, falling for a lady, who is somehow involved in illegal activity.
Add on top of this an overall laziness on the part of Jan Hammer to think up any new material, with a few exceptions, and you have a very average season of TV. However, I will say for the record that his score in El Viejo is absolutely brilliant and one of the best of the whole series - if only that much energy had been channeled into other episodes.
So overall, Miami Vice lost its steam in this season. Don't get me wrong, this season is not as offensive as what follows in the 4th year. However, this season is often fairly dull.

The episodes in this third season carry the same enthusiasm and attention to detail that the first two seasons exhibited. Unlike other shows that have a certain amount of longevity, this show does not stray from the basic story line and developed characters, thus, never losing the ingredients that spawned it's popularity. Excellent mix of grittiness and style. The show took on a much darker edge but did not stray from its roots.

Some episodes are true classics (the opener with Jeff Fahey as a weapons distributor) the episode guest starring Lou Diamond Philipps as a cop, and a classic with John Glover as a former cop who is a surveillance sweeper (by the far funniest and least gritty episode of the season-straight out of a season 1 episode). Biker Boys from Hell is quite bad, but you will get a few poor episodes in every MV season due to the fact that different people directed each episode.
8/10.

If you got a chance . grap it !!!
You will never get a cop series like this.
The actors are great - the soundtrack is great.
There isn't much more you can get.
