Dear lord, I was just browsing amazon.fr and saw that they're selling seasons of Miami Vice on DVD! Weird enough, it's under their "Imports" section. No wonder the French think Americans are crazy...Miami Vice...ugh

Are you saying there's something wrong with that classic show Miami Vice?   smile

Miami Vice, was a classic show. 

The only thing about it, was how could Crocket afford a Ferarri Daytona (and then a white Testarossa) on a cops salary?

As I recall the car, boat and other expensive stuff wasn't his but stuff the police had confiscated from criminals that he used as part of his undercover activities.

Makes sense, I suppose - and the pet crocodile? 

I used to love the show.  Bizarrely, the episode with Phil Collins was a highlight.

After the demise of Nash Bridges, I guess he's still making the odd film/TV movie.

Maybe he's chasing Melanie Griffith again too.

Edit: After looking him on IMDb, he sounds like a right character. This is my favourite quote of his:

Guilty as Sin - the movie he made with Rebecca De Mornay was on tv last night.  Amazingly I went to the cinema to see this.
No one's asked about Philip Michael Thomas though - poor guy

Is simple actually, Phillip Michael Thomas hasn't done anything noteworthy since "Miami Vice". He'll always be remebered as "the guy who played Don Johnson's partner". Sad, but probably true.

Miami Vice was an okay show, although I'm more of an A-Team guy. But it helped personify the 80's.

Macgyver sucked, especially after one episode where it stole the car chase scene from The Italian Job without crediting it  no no Miami Vice was way better than both that and the A-Team.

I second that Macgyver owned.  I don't remember Miami Vice that fondly.  I'd rather watch Macgyver and the A-team.   ...And Tales of the Golden Monkey.

Okay, I agree a bit on McGyver, but that is nothing but heresy. Nothing beat A-Team in sheer 80's tvshow goodness, with the possible exception of Alf. George Pepard, Dwight Schultz and Mr T in the same show? Stroke of genius.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

The opening credits always cracked me up:
"Mr. T as...MR. T!".
Classic, and the theme tune just rocked (except for the awful synth remix used in the last series).

The show did loose some of it's charm after they got involved with that general guy. Not my favorite parts.

That was Harlan Fullbright, the MP general. He was shot by a Vietnamese soldier, when they returned to Vietnam to rescue his daughter (played by a young Tia Carrera no less  flirt ). I liked that character.

The general I don't like was called Stockwell, and ran some secret governement agency. He coerced the A-Team into his agency.

Blimey, I remember the episode when they went to rescue his daughter (Tia Carrera? Wow!).  I don't remember much else from the latter seasons.

Mr T played B.A. Baracus.

The theme tune is still one of the greats, another from the great Post/Carpenter duo.

Hey, how dare anyone trash Macguyver like that? Who cares if he stole a car chase from some movie that nobody cares about? All the great 80's shows did that.

The Incredible Hulk stole the car chase from Duel, and we liked it just fine.

The only Miami Vice I watched was Miami Mice on Sesame Street.

As opposed to Macgyver every week and the A-Team with less frequency.

Come to think of it, that Airwolf show rocked, too.
