    Great Show & Fixed Version Off The Shelf

    Just like my previous review for SPEED RACER - how do you write a review for an iconic TV show? First and foremost! If you have not heard the first pressings of the box set were defective. Mill Creek crossed up something in mastering and the sound was incorrect on a couple discs. I purchased this right off the shelf and went home and tested the known episodes. I was thrilled these were the fixed versions and I did not have to ship off the discs for replacements. Again as my SPEED RACER review went - DVDs vs Blu. I paid more for my first season of MIAMI VICE Complete First Season then I did for this Blu box. There are 5 seasons. The DVDs took up a lot of shelf space. Now I have 5 slim blu cases in a box which takes up a little bit less then the original first season (on DVD). It's an iconic show what can I say? They did format it in the 1.33:1 ratio (non widescreen TVs) which some folks have complained about but hey the show was filmed for a square screen. From the episodes I have watched the "REMASTERED IN HIGH DEFINITION and sizzling 5.1 SURROUND SOUND" is a bit much. Back when it was broadcast it was a "stereo" show. When I change the audio during playback the HD sound requires me to turn up the volume. Not saying that is a bad thing just mentioning it.

    I have been a huge Miami Vice fan since a kid watching re-runs on TNN so when this blu-ray set was released I knew I had to give it a shot. I was blown away from the pilot on at just how clean, and crisp the show is now. There was clearly a lot of time and effort put into make the show look the best it could, some episodes look so good you could almost be fooled into thinking they were filmed today! Though Vice would look better since it was shot on film vs. digital.

    Nice upgrade of a hit-and-miss show

    "Miami Vice" has some clunky moments, but the modestly-priced Blu-ray version gives you video and sonic upgrades that enhance the show greatly. It's fun to catch all the up-and-coming stars and to relive the pastel fashion era. I haven't made it through all 5 seasons yet, but so far I'm very pleased. Video improves from season to season and the stereo mix on seasons 2-5 gets the job done.

    Michael Mann in the 1980s was definitely something special. This show changed the game and the look for NBC in the 1980s what Twin Peaks did for ABC in the 1990s. Make sure to email the Mill Bridge company that released this collection to get the replacement discs for a few discs that had terrible audio errors.

    Better than watching it on streaming services. The only thing I am missing is the extras. But extras wasn't a thing in the 80's so that's probably long gone. Color is fabulous, audio is great-even a little too loud.

    Miami Vice was the coolest show on TV in the 80s. Every Friday night at 9:00, I knew where I would be - right in front of the television. This blu ray set looks amazing - great picture, great sound. Not a lot of extras - but that's fine. I never watch that stuff anyway.

    I am and was a fan Of "Miami Vice" It was a ground breaking program about drug trafficking in and around Florida and the Caribbean. If you like cop shows, great music, fast expensive cars, speed boats, and for the guys women in little bikinis. This is worth a look.

    Nice set but there are no subtitles. It may not make a difference to most but I might not have ordered the set had I known subtitles were missing.

    What it takes to have two vice detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs going after bad guys with lots of shooting and mix with music from Phil Collins, Glenn Frey, and others, you have Miami Vice

    How can you not smile when you reminisce about Crockett and Tubbs taking out the trash! This show brought us the stylized talents of Michael Mann and eventually changed cinema forever.

    This series handled difficult and sensitive material extremely well. It was way before it's time with the subject matter. Good actors and story lines.

    My favorite crime drama from the 80's...WOW! Now I can relive all those wonderful episodes, ie. SMUGGLER'S BLUES with guest star GLEN FREY.
