Customer Review

on 27 April 2005
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.
