I picked up the first series while bored and I'm currently halfway through the second series. The show itself is probably one of, if not the best cop shows Ive ever watched. It was slick and stylish 25 years ago and I must say is even better today. I always knew of the program from playing Vice city which has an unlimited amount of homages to it, that and Scarface.The style of the show and the mood is iconic, it simply oozes coolness. we are introduced to Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs, one a Southern cop and the other a tough New York cop, an unlikely pairing and one that has been redone a million times since the creation of the show by others that came after it. Here is a basic lowdown of the characters and some info about the show:
Larry Zito and Stan Switek
Gina Calabrese and Trudy Joplin
The Cars, Boats, and Guns
used in the 1st and second series, really cool looking but not as cool as the Ferrari Testarossa, It gets blown up by a pissed off Liam Neeson in Series 3
The most iconic car in the series, some day if I ever get rich I'm buying one of these.
Later seen in Vice City.
Used from the 2nd series to the fifth, by Sonny.
Phil Collins (an entire episode)
