If you like Ken Stott in Rebus, you'll like this earlier effort. The subject matter is pretty seamy, particularly for American TV audiences, which is probably why it never made it to PBS or A&E. It does have a little of "The Wire" feel to it, but it's clearly Ken Stott's vehicle as DI Pat Chapel. Stott plays Chapel like a younger Rebus who still feels a certain degree of devotion to the job and not just to the crime at hand. But, like Rebus, Chapel is a flawed character constantly flirting with on the job disasters, mostly of his own making. His subordinates are affected by the nature of the work and his less than stellar management style, but in the end they catch the bad guys.

The series has a few unusual twists and turns with one of the stars coming to an early end in Season 2 which, apparently, is all we're allowed to see of the generally excellent series. The show ran for 5 years on British TV, but so far only the first two seasons have been released on DVD. Since the show originally ran starting in 1998-99 I don't hold out a lot of hope for the balance of the episodes. Again, the subject matter is rough with all the expected violence and nudity, but the acting and scripts are first rate. Just don't expect "Midsomer Murders".

Didn't know anything about this series but I love British mysteries so I got it and I think it's my favorite....well I do love Prime Suspect and Trial and Retribution but The Vice is compelling. The ensemble cast is extraordinary!
The show deals with the seamier side of life and crime but my fascination was really with the development of the characters who investigate these crimes led by their boss played by Ken Stott. It is so worth watching that I'm saving both Season 1 and 2 to watch again in a year or two. Recommend this to all British mystery lovers especially those who love the grittier ones and ones that deal with a team and not one main character. There's a love interest in this season and it was unusual and totalling engaging. Buy this and Season 2!!

I am a documentary junkie. Most of what I watch on TV or streaming is documentary programs. Although there is an ever so slight lean to the left politically, the show gives a very unique and reasonably balanced view of the subjects they cover. I have now seen all of the episodes up to current date, and will continue to watch. I like how they break up the episodes into two topics, and although they are short, they cover each subject rather thoroughly.

If you are into culture, world events, and an alternative view to what the mainstream feeds you, I would highly recommend this show. Although I am a libertarian, and I could see a few points of political leaning, it wasn't enough to deter me from enjoying and being educated by the content they put forth. Watch and get hooked at your leisure.

This is the type of series that the Brits seem to do so well. It is a combination of crime solving mystery and strong character development. A good cast makes this series stand out. With a title like The Vice, one can tell that this is a dark and gritty series. If you are looking for action then I would suggest something else. If you look for good acting, strong character development and a good plot, then this is something that you will enjoy.

Intellectually stimulating while simultaneously entertaining for a documentary style news show. It is amazing fotoage they get and the interviews they conduct no one else is currently doing in the main stream media.

I ENJOYED THE MAIN ACTOR KEN STOTT FROM THIS SERIES IN THE DETECTIVE SERIES REBUS WHERE HE PLAYED A VISIONARY PSYCHIATRIST HELPING THE POLICE AND HE IS VERY GOOD IN THE VICE AS WELL. MAYBE A BIT TOO GRITTY FOR AVERAGE COPS AND ROBBERS DRAMAS AS IT INVOLVES A LOT OF SEEDY VENUES AND PEOPLE. INTERESTING HOW THE POLICE COPE WITH ALL THE DEVELOPMENTS IN THIS LINE OF WORK. LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING MORE SEASONS OF THIS DRAMA SERIES - ALTHOUGH IT IS A BIT TOO MUCH INTO WHAT IT IS ABOUT IE VICE - I PREFER SOMETHING A BIT MORE CLEANED UP AND COMPLEX. LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE SEASONS.

I'll be honest -- I bought it because it was $5 at the time. But I enjoyed it right from the start. Ken Stott plays Pat Chapel, head of the Vice Unit, whose job seems to be less about arresting prostitutes than catching the pimps and pornographers that make license possible. In episode 1, a prostitute is murdered, and it's the Vice Unit's job to determine why and by whom. It's a great introduction to the ensemble cast -- Chapel himself, his right-hand man and moral pillar, the naive rookie, and the experienced-but-slightly-jaded officer.

In episode 2, the Vice Unit is trying to reopen a cold case involving a murdered underage male prostitute while preventing another such young man from ending up the same. In episode 3, the rookie goes undercover to expose a combination prostitution/drug ring, but his feelings for an "escort" might draw him in further than he should go.

If season 2 ever drops to a reasonable price, I'll plunk down for it. My only complaint that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is the subplot concerning adultery. I suppose it's there to show the flawed aspect of our "heroes", but it's a disappointing fallback.
