    What a great show. It always had great music and good guest stars- Penn Jillette, drug dealer, took a bullet to the head (!)

    It was a great show, the old man still watches it on DVD. Heres a story Don told Rolling Stone not long ago, gives some idea as to the amount of pussy they were getting.

    There's some pretty outlandish stories about you guys in the Vice days, particularly Philip — "EGOT" and all that. Whose ego was larger back then?

    During the Eighties, everyone was suffering from ego-itis. Who can throw the bigger party? The guy that benefited the most from all that, and is still riding the same broom, is Donald Trump. Listen, I can only tell you that there was a lot of heat around Miami Vice, and it was easy to get seduced by the attention. In the second season, we were shooting in New York and we had a chase scene just off Wall Street. The buildings were filled with all these secretaries, and office workers. When Philip and I took off running, the windows flew open on those office buildings…and then the sky started raining panties. Not 100 — I'm talking thousands of panties raining down on the street. To this day, I can't believe I saw what I saw. And what was really hilarious was watching the crew having to pick up all the panties so we could shoot again.

    I don't remember another TV show having such an impact on fashion. I have a photo of me during my 6th grade graduation in 1987 wearing white pants, white shoes, and a turquoise blue shirt. I looked like a douche, but in 1987 it was completely normal.

    I can't believe all the cocaine I snorted while watching every episode of the 1st two seasons.

    Had to cop your eight balls before the show came on because coke dealers wouldn't answer their phones while Miami Vice was on.

    Micheal Mann was the first director of Miami Vice and then moved on to do films.....And until him, I NEVER paid attention to directors.....
    But his eye and his choice of soundtracks is simply genius.........He makes a film......I watch and listen to it.......

    I actually owned pink pants and light blue pants in 1985. I actually went to bar with a sweater tied around my neck.

    It was one of the first TV shows which didn't pander to the every-story-has-a-happy-ending formula.

    You'd be sitting there eating your popcorn, and then, just as you were getting invested in some main character, they would get smoked. You would just kind of sit there with your mouth hanging open, a couple of kernels falling out, going 'what the hell just happened'.

    It was pretty revolutionary for the time. Not like Rockford or Magnum where everything was tidied up at the end with a bow on top.

    Oh, and Willie Nelson was on an episode. (I think he got smoked to.)

    This intro makes me want to do mountains of coke spread across the ass of a hooker that took a raft to the States from Cuba.

    Today's sixth-grader has a shaved head, is covered in tatts, wears over-sized basketball uniforms to graduation and twerks with joy when presented with the diploma.

    I'll take the eighties.
