Did You Know?


Although Godley and Creme's "Cry" is closely associated to the Definitely Miami episode, it was not featured on the original NBC airing. Instead, an original Jan Hammer incidental piece - which sounds very similar to the guitar rhythm in "Cry" - in select scenes such as when Crockett (Don Johnson) drives out to the sand dune junkyard to confront Charlie Basset (Ted Nugent), and when Crockett appears on the beach to reveal he is a cop and arrests Callie (Arielle Dombasle). Godley and Creme's "Cry" replaced the Jan Hammer original score when Miami Vice went into TV syndication. See more »


When Gravas runs from Crockett and Tubbs by the pool, his hair and clothes are dry. But when he jumps into his getaway car, his hair and clothes are soaking wet. A shot of Gravas falling or jumping in the pool was probably deleted. See more »

Callie is one of the sexiest babes in the series!
25 August 2006 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Callie, the babe in the revealing swimsuit by the pool left an indelible impression on me when I recorded the episode on VHS ten years ago off of the FX channel so you can imagine my delight to see her on DVD on season two. She and Don Johnson smoldered with sexuality when they shared ice cubes in the hot Miami sun. Ted Nugent plays a believable baddie and has a thuggish demeanor about him without his shirt and long hair just-out-of-joint look. Now if we can get Season 3 out there for consumption I'd be in heaven, especially since I'm not too enthused about seeing the movie, which I heard is dark (I understand Michael Mann didn't want any red colors in this movie?) and not as cheery as the pastel-flavored television series.
