Synopsis

Season one of Miami Vice finds New York-bred vice cop Ricardo Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) newly arrived at the Miami-Dade PD, in pursuit of the drug kingpin who murdered his brother. Reluctantly teamed with maverick undercover detective Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson), Tubbs is not a little surprised at how well and effectively they work together. In subsequent episodes, Crockett and Tubbs try to get to the bottom of an allegation that a rogue FBI agent has sold them out; Tubbs rescues Crockett's family from an Argentinean hit man; Lt. Martin Castillo (Edward James Olmos) joins the force as the boys' new, no-nonsense superior officer; a recreational speedboat racer is revealed to be a dangerous drug-runner; and the son of a wealthy industrialist is set up as a decoy to catch a few big-timers in the heroin trade. In addition, Sonny and "Rico" pose as corrupt hotel security guards to thwart a prostitution ring and end up halting a robbery; Castillo solicits the boys' help in freeing his kidnapped wife; Tubbs himself is abducted because of the gung-ho tactics of a revenge-seeking police officer; and Crockett comes face to face with a dark figure from his past during an ATM bust of an arms dealer. The season wraps up with a tense cat-and-mouse game between Crockett and Tubbs and the gunmen who intend to murder their prisoner, a mob witness. Though Miami Vice would not crack the Top 30 TV shows during its maiden season, word of mouth would elevate the show to ninth place in the overall ratings for season two. ~ Hal Erickson
