At the time this show was fresh and new...the clothes the cars the boats, all confiscated from drug dealers. Nothing was off limits with this show! I would recommend this show to anyone.

Drugs, 2 fast cars, beautiful women - no, not the "Fast and the Furious" 1 to who cares, but Miami Vice. It is a legend and for oldschool machos and an absolute must. Do not expect top notch dialogues, expect Don Johnson!
