This DVD set is very cool and all of the original music is there.
Sancho
In most cases of Miami Vice, in some way or another, one of the good guys usually lost, just like in real life.
Jason Brent
I remembered every single episode as it played on but felt like I was watching it for the first time.

One happy camper here!! After seeing the trouble Wise Guy and Lovejoy had with "Nights in White Satin", I gnawed bullets when they announced Vice would come out on DVD. I loved this show, saw a lot more to the creativity and inspiration than critics did. But Vice is not just the story, the style -- it's the MUSIC! I know these episodes and ever tune that was perfectly picked to set the stage of each scene. What if they messed with the soundtrack??? Heaven forbid!

Well I am here to say - It's VICE Heaven!! The pristine episodes, in full movie stereo sound (stereo sound only can in the middle of the series) shown at their full running speed, not compressed for time so they can get more commercials in. This is VICE perfection. The transfer is beautiful, you could not ask for more, loaded with extras, but the main thing it's Season one as it was MEANT to be. The MUSIC!! Exactly, not changes!

Applause to Mann and Universal by doing right by Vice fans. All I can say is bring on Seasons 2-5 ASAP!!!

Episodes include

1) Vice Pilot (with a very young Jimmy Smitts!
2) Heart of Darkness
3) Cool Running
4) 5) Calderone's Return Parts 1 & 2
6) One Eyed Jack
7) No Exit
8) The Great McCarthy
9) Glades
10)Give a Little, Take a Little
11) Little Prince
12) Milk Run
13) 14) Golden Triangle Part 1 & 2
15) Smuggler's Blues
16) Rites of Passage
17) The Maze
18) Made for Each Other
19) The Home Invaders
20) Nobody Live Forever
21) Evan (just doesn't get better than this!)

I work for Universal Music and suggested 2 years ago to put out a CD with all of the songs that were on the Miami Vice series and got the same answer, that it was to hard to get all of the artist to agree and figure out how to distribute the royality fees. So trying to get the series on DVD is the same thing, it's all about money. If I had any clout they would be working very hard on getting this done. I was and still am a great fan of that show and believe it was the best of the 80's. I have 10 VHS tapes of the series and then they stopped producing them. Trust me, if they wanted to do it, they could and would. Come on Universal, put out the DVD series and combine all of the music on a CD box set. You know you can. Let's just keep the pressure on and hope for the best. Since the 80"s style is coming back in vogue, maybe they will produce it.

I grew up with Miami Vice on it's initial run here on the BBC in England. It's combination of music, photography and locations made such a strong impact on me, even to this day. I have all the episodes on VHS but am desperate to get them on dvd, if only the first 2 seasons which were the best.
I have recently contacted UNIVERSAL PLAYBACK in the UK, and they told me that they are trying to put together a season one release, but that it was proving difficult to gain the rights to include all the original music from so many artists in each episode. I was told that it would be a year at the earliest, so let's keep our fingers crossed.
Miami Vice was a groundbreaking show, and I advise anyone who ever watched it to get the DVD should it be released.

As a long-time Miami Vice fan who experienced the original shows in the 80's, then in syndication, the two Pilots on laser disc, and the overpriced Columbia House VHS set, it's great to finally experience it on a digital format like DVD in all it's authentic glory.

It was worth the wait for Universal to track down the rights to the original music. Russ Ballard's 'Voices' on 'Return of Calderon Part II' is a pivotal song that was replaced on the Columbia House tapes that makes all the difference in the world having it reinstated on these DVDs.

There have been reports comparing these DVD's to tapes of the original NBC broadcasts that there might be some slight discrepencies in missing incidental dialogue in 'Heart of Darkness', 'Calderon's Return' and 'Smuggler's Blues' which only die hard fans familiar with the original broadcasts would notice. I can appreciate such concerns, especially if a favorite bit of dialogue isn't present as you've experienced it in the past. But that's a can of worms that can be opened and explored on Miami Vice forums more appropriately and in better detail.

At $1.3 million per episode in the 80's, the show was shot on film, so the popular episodes and most of the opening titles are worse for the wear in terms of dust and scratches, but along with the increased resolution and crystal clear remixed surround track, it gives the First Season a grittier, authentic, cinematic feel that was lacking in previous releases. The color is filmlike while the pastel hues still come across as vibrant but not overly saturated, which produces a appropriately realistic feel.
