Goofs

When Tubbs wakes Crockett on his boat, a pack of Lucky Strike unfiltered cigarettes are visible in the foreground. However, the cigarettes Crockett smokes are much longer than unfiltered Lucky Strikes as evidenced by the cigarette he lights during his meeting (under the alias Sonny Burnett) with Trini DeSoto.

A trend-setting television narcotics thriller
5 September 2005 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

This pilot film kicked off the popular television series of two undercover narcotics cops as they work the streets of Miami to fight against drugs and crime in south Florida. Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas team up against the backdrop of the glitz and allure of the hip tropical culture of this city that is more Latin and Caribbean than American. The women, cars, clothes, and speedboats are all a major part of the production design of the show which has the right mixture of polish and attitude. Olivia Brown and Saundra Santiago are among the cast of regulars on the show. The program also spawned a major movie film production several years later.
