Editor's Note
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 colors 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 short-lived 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 the Golden Globe and an Emmy. The first season of the show has a surprising number of famous guest stars, including Bruce Willis, John Turturro, Jimmy Smits, and Pam Grier. MIAMI VICE is a fascinating cultural document of the 1980s as well as an effective and exciting cop show.

"[I]t's still an entertaining artifact of the decade it helped define." 02/11/2005 p.52-3

Rolling Stone
"[With a] heavy-duty arsenal, cocaine nights and body-rocking soundtrack..." 02/24/2005 p.77

Hollywood North Report 9 of 10
Cool clothes, cool cars, cool music...and two cool cops. Better still, innovative storytelling, quality writing and atmospheric cinematography. Miami Vice was the gold standard of 80's crime drama; a groundbreaking series that helped define the fashion and music of the period while simultaneously telling a ripping good yarn week after week. I wonder if we'll ever see such tearing enthusiasm for the "buddy cop" genre again...When combined with innovative storytelling and film-like cinematography, the exotic locales, sultry mood, chic clothing and fast cars were, by themselves, intoxicating. Yet the producers didn't stop there...Instead, in a flash of brilliance, they employed high-octane music as an element of the narrative itself, with songs carefully picked to evoke a particular emotion, or move the plot along more effectively than any dialogue could. - Robert Falconer
