Product Description

Product Description

The cops. The cars. The clothes. Miami Vice: Season One is the explosive, groundbreaking detective show that redefined the word "cool." Set against the seamy and steamy Miami underworld, ride shotgun with suave Vice cops Sonny Crockett (Golden Globe winner Don Johnson) and Rico Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) as they battle a never-ending gallery of criminals. Set to an electrifying soundtrack of rock legends, including Glenn Frey, Phil Collins, U2 and Peter Gabriel, every episode crackles with excitement and stylish flair. Also starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner Edward James Olmos and a powerhouse roster of guest stars including Ving Rhames, Jimmy Smits and Bruce Willis.

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

Format: DVD
I snagged this in 2011 as got a little nostalgic for the whole "Miami Vice" vibe. I will say the series holds up pretty well on DVD. First of all, kudos to the people who put this out as they throw on five different extras all of which give us a good look at how music and fashion were an integral part of the show as well as how the show incorporated its setting (Miami and all of South Florida) into the show. There's also some great interview clips off the "Today" show with the cast. Toss in bits with Jan hammer who did the signature soundtracks to each episode and the extras really are worth the price of this DVD.

The transfer to DVD is very good. The series still oozes that "pastel and art deco meets the dark underbelly of Miami" feel to it. At times some of the episodes do suffer from the wrap it all up in an hour arc of network TV.

On this set you get the two-hour pilot which has Jimmy Smits (say what?) as Crockett's partner. I won't give anything away but Tubbs shows up in the pilot. Also, Crockett's boss in the pilot is Gregory Sierra. James Edward Olmos takes over later in the first season. Anyway, just FYI, guest stars that first season included Bruce Willis (with hair!), the Eagles' Glenn Frey, the aforementioned Dennis Farina, Joan Chen, Hawaii 5-0's Keye Luke and Pam Grier.
There's also the famous Switek and Zito (the other two less-sartorially splendored cops in the vice squad) episode which is as hilarious as I remembered it.

You may not be into watching the entire season as it does have its excellent and duff episodes and I found myself picking and choosing. Even so I'd say if you're a fan of the show, it's worth at least having a gander at. You won't be disappointed.

I was completely hyped when I found out Miami Vice finally made it's way to DVD. If one show was made for DVD it was Miami Vice. For awhile I feared it would never see the day of light, because the heavy use of original music. I had read not that long ago 'Vice's DVD debut would be long in coming due in part to the issue of music licensing that would have to be paid out.
Glad to say, all 20 episodes have remained intact as I recall them. Each and every episode brings back a lot of memories. I know some people "goofed" on the show but in my opinion the first season of Miami Vice ranks up there as one of the best ever on television. Exotic locales, fast cars, shoots outs, beautiful women, great fashion and great music. Don Johnson, Philip Michael Thomas and Edward James Olmos were complimented by a great supporting cast. Fleshing out the cast were the recurring roles of character actors, Martin Ferrero and Charlie Barnett as Izzy Moreno and Noogie respectively. Both actors gave the show comic relief to offset the frequent dark storylines.
Miami Vice will be forever etched in my mind. Like clockwork, I recall watching the show on Friday night's, while getting "dressed" up to go clubbing. I still have many of these originally aired vice episodes from season one on VHS. Now I can toss those to the trash to make more room on my DVD shelf. I eagerly await for season 2 to be released (soon I hope). To gear up for that I just watched the season 2 premiere "Prodigal Son" on VHS.

Like any MV fan I was very excited about this DVD. I have now watched it all and I loved watching this show again. This show is a classic and deserved better treatment from the studios.
The image transfer is not always perfect but generally very good. Music is original from the show. Each dvd is double sided. I would have prefered single sided with image on each dvd. This looks cheap. How about an episode guide booklet inside the pocket ? Picture on interior of dvd is from later season! come on! Couldn't find a picture of the first season to put inside??? Geez. The cover artwork is great though. Extras on the dvd mediocre in my opinion. This show deserved better and so did the fans. I hope they improve on the next season dvd.
Episodes stand up well as great tv. If you enjoyed this show before you will enjoy this dvd but don't expect super extras.

I bought this season a few weeks ago...and within 3 episodes I found myself off to the store to buy the complete set! This show was/is awesome! As I got ready for the first 2-hour episode I felt my heart pound...and then...the opening music...memories came pouring back. This show had cars...drugs...rock'n'roll...good acting...a little cheese...but it was the 80's right? If you were a fan of this show...get it. It's worth every penny to go back in time and remember all the episodes! Crockett and Tubbs have instant chemistry...and the rest of the vice team fit in perfectly (once the Lt is changed to Edward James Olmos). This is solid quality viewing!

I remember in the 80's, the only show that really stood out was Miami Vice. I loved it back then and I still love it now. They recently brought back Miami Vice on TV and honestly it is still as good as it was back then. Some shows today still cannot beat the action, the cool car chases. For those who love the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City video game. Where do you think they idea came from? Don Johnson and Philippe Micheal Thomas play undercover narcotics cops in Miami. Also there are some special guess stars that came on the show like Bruce Willis, Wesley Snipes, etc... I have to say that most of the shows were like watching a short movie
