    They should offer a discount for season 5.

    Don’t get me wrong, Miami Vice is one of my all-time favorite series.

    But Season 5 was pretty much an “out to lunch” season. Totally absent was directorial, musical, or writer innovation. Don Jonson looked like he was on chemotherapy or some juiced member of a biker gang. The stories were loud and largely ripped from other (BAD) popular series of the time. Like the magical ray gun. Or rogue cops. The Gambler’s Anonymous episode. Or a Holocaust episode (in the Season of Holocaust Specials, three a year at least by the late 80s). Etc.

    It reminds one of the sloppy writing in the latter years of MASH. Where we become sooooo concerned about the feelings of Houlahan and the clerk, whatshisname, Klinger, and the rest of the “gang”. Whatever.

    Bad bad bad. The one bright spot is the delightful “evil Sonny” arc, which opens the set, where a screwed-up amnesiac Sonny Crockett turns into a hit man. That alone is worth the cost of the set, but the rest? TV mediocrity, nothing special, just known characters in predictable plots. Yawn.

    Well worth cancellation at that point.

    This and season four were the two worst seasons of vice. The acting, the look and stories were very bad, and in my opinion vice should have ended after the third season. Unless you are a huge fan of the series, skip it. If you are just a fan buy seasons 1-3, and if you are first experiencing vice, buy season two, the best season of the show.

    I didn’t have to comment with anyone of the comments made about Miami Vice. MIAMI VICE is what it is, ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL, THE BOMB, SONNY & TUBBS MADE SURE THAT WE WERE IN FRONT OF OUR TV’s BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE WENT ON IN OUR LIVES ON “THEIR NIGHT.” THE MUSIC WAS ON, SONNY WAS ON, CASTILLO WAS ON, RICARDO or RAPHAEL WAS ON & TRUDY (THE ORIGINAL MISS BIG BOOTY, read her name plate on her desk BigBootyTrudy) WAS ON and I don’t say that to BE sexist to this critique, if you will…I am a very married straight woman and if I wasn’t, SO WHAT! It is what it is! It’s just true and I don’t want to forget Gina who was always ON also. Miami Vice is the best thing that ever happened to television. The movie made with the WANNABEES portraying CROCKETT AND TUBBS WAS A SHAME! I HATED IT AND HAD NO INTENTION TO SEE IT, HOWEVER I WAS TRICKED BY MY HUBBY AND ASSOCIATES. It would have been nice to see the older Crockett and Tubbs handle the intrigue they wanted or should I say they tried to portray in the different situations in the movie however, they didn’t ask fans of the the TV series what we thought and it was TERRIBLE!! If it wasn’t one of a kind then special Television Shows, Movies, Innovative shows from the past would not exist in TVLAND, etc. If it wasn’t one of a kind it would not be on at least 5 to 7 different channels at different times everyday of the week. I am thankful we can buy our DVD’s and watch them anytime we wish. I look forward to the fifth season and I’ll embrace it as if it were brand new. It’s so good we have something to look forward to with the DVD’s because everything on TV now that is even close to the Miami Vice format is a rip off of Vice. Watch very close, very close and you will see that Sonny and Ricco had already been there. SORRY, it is what it is and it’s TRUTH. DON’T YOU MISS THE MUSIC. ROCK ON MIAMI VICE, ROCK ON FOREVER!!!!! Think about it isn’t this why they have TV LAND? TV LAND is for classic television right. THERE IS ALWAYS GROUND-BREAKING TV. SEE YA OFTEN MIAMI VICE, YOU BROKE THE GROUND. I LOVE YOU ALL 4EVER! IT MEANT EVEN MORE TO THOSE OF US WHO WERE STATIONED OVERSEAS, SERVING IN THE U.S. MILITARY AT THE TIME IT CAME OUT, WE MAY HAVE STARTED WATCHING MIAMI VICE 1 1/2 to 2 years late but it was well worth it. WE HAD MIAMI VICE GET TOGETHERS, PIZZA NIGHTS, PARTIES, ETC. AND WE THANK SONNY, RICO, CASTILLO, ETC. FOR MAKING A WHOLE LOT OF OUR FAMILIES GOOD & FUN TIMES HAPPEN, THANKS AGAIN!!!! P.S. LOVED YOU TOO NASH BRIDGES, BRING IT ON! MAYBE TV SHOWS COULD TAKE ANOTHER HINT AND PLAY SOME DECENT MUSIC TO YOUR DRAMAS YOU HAVE ON NOW. MAYBE I’D WATCH..GOOD LUCK!!

    SHOULD I DEFINE ON: ON IS ON TIME, ON BOARD, ON MY TV, ON IS COOL, ON IS THE BOMB, ON IS WHAT’S HAPPENING, ON IS SOLID, ON IS FUN, ON IS INTERESTING, ON MAKES YOU THINK, ON MAKES YOU NOT MISS AN EPISODE, ON IS THAT MIAMI VICE WAS THE BEST TV AND PURPLE RAIN WAS THE BEST MOVIE, ON IS HOT AND ON IS IF YOU WANT TO SEND A LOT OF NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO ME, SAY I’M CRAZY, SAY IM OUT THERE, GO AHEAD. I COULD CARE LESS. I’M ON AS YOU READ THIS…HAHAHA.

    WITH ALL SINCERITY,

  5. Lets be real. The high point of the creative Miami Vice was in seasons two and three after the show got rolling in season one. The dynamic creative energy began to slip in season four and by season five the combination of poor writing, actors phoning it in, and missing characters caught up with what was once THE most daring show on TV. The plots are silly. Castillo disappears halfway through the season, only to briefly reappear at the final episode. Don Johnson disappears for several of the final episodes and there is an outright awful pilot about pretty boy young undercover cops that must be endured to be seen. I tried to count up how many bad guys Crockett and Tubbs had killed in five years: just about most of Latin America. By season five you could tell the drug dealers because they were wearing the stupidest costumes that could be designed. You have to watch this dvd just for the laughs!
