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.
The show used numerous real-life Metro-Dade Police Officers. One of them, SRT Police Sniper Greg Kral, was involved in the SWAT raid that turned up Gianni Versace's killer, Andrew Cunanan. He was also involved in the hostage rescue of 13 children with autism from a school bus, and part of the team that recovered remains from ValuJet 592, which crashed in the Everglades.
You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun.
In numerous episodes, the primary characters are involved in career-ending shootings and yet none are terminated as police officers, nor prosecuted for the offense. Some killings are clearly intentional murders, yet the detectives continue in their roles as if nothing happened.
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.
