Resplendent with authentic 1980's music, fashion and vibe, "Miami Vice" follows two undercover detectives and their extended team through the mean streets of Miami.
Although Lt. Martin Castillo rarely engaged in the show's many shootouts, his weapon of choice was a Colt Trooper Mk V 357 magnum with a six inch barrel. It's improbably large for a plain-clothes officer whose duties are primarily administrative. It may have been an attempt to remind Sonny Crockett who has the bigger gun.
Knowing the answers doesn't make it any easier, does it?
Det. Ricardo Tubbs: In this job you're lucky if it doesn't make it any harder.
Ricardo Tubbs could certainly quit the NYPD and join the Miami-Dade police force. However, it would take him years to be assigned as a detective on that force as there would be dozens of officers with seniority over him.
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.
