This pilot episode for the popular "Miami Vice" series is a great window into the long-lasting series. It has all the facets that have made the series so popular: trendy pastels, rapid editing, popular music, synthesizer scoring, Tubbs and Crockett banter and good ol' fashioned violence. The subject matter is gritty, but its presentation slick, and that combination works to make "Miami Vice" an undeniably entertaining series from an aesthetic standpoint. The film is given heart by its two leads, Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas, which make this more than just an hour and a half MTV spot.

For those who missed this great TV series, this pilot is the perfect place to start!
