Great show, with a great '80's look
5 September 2003 | by ajwebbSee all my reviews

Miami Vice is a great 80's show. With flashy suits, a hot car, and a Florida look. Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas make this a great show, and Edward James Olmos adds to this show. Although the show did drop in the ratings, I thought it was still a good show. I watch this every time it comes on Spike TV (formerly TNN). I also recommend that you watch Nash Bridges, a newer Don Johnson.
