Stubble-faced detective Crockett lived in a sailboat guarded by his alligator Elvis. His partner Tubbs was a black New York cop looking for his brother's killer. Together they took on the Florida drug world. The show influenced men's fashions toward Italo-casual and interior decor toward the Memphis look. Very trendy music and unusual guest performers.

Three episodes of the series have these additional songs playing at the closing credits instead of the show's original theme song: "Calderone's Return": Tina Turner - "What's Love Got to Do With It?"; this song plays over footage of Crockett and Tubbs riding a speedboat, plus flashbacks of Tubbs and Angelina. "Phil the Shill": Phil Collins - "Life is a Rat Race" and "Freefall" (final episode): Terry Kath - "Tell Me"; this song plays over a montage of scenes from the show. See more »
It doesn't seem like that long ago.Friday nights,ten o'clock.I was a senior in high school,and anyone who knew me knew where I was at that time.I was in front of the tube watching Miami Vice,except during high school football season,in which case I would be at the game and taping the show to watch immediately upon getting home that night.This show had something different from anything I had seen previously.Music was such a prominent part of the show that it actually seemed like a supporting character.Let's not forget the fashion statements that it made.Clothes that seemed cool at the time,we wouldn't be caught dead in now.In a flash,the 80's were gone,and so was Miami Vice.You can be nostalgic and watch the reruns,but as for me,I miss the newness of it all.
