Break out the Ray-Bans

February 10, 2005

miami viceAfter almost 20 years from first air date, Miami Vice finally made its way to DVD. I was so looking forward to this one, I pre-ordered back in December shortly after hearing of its pending release. I’ve got to tell you in the current doldrums of repeats, reality shows and mindless network programming, Vice on DVD was just what my house needed, so far we’ve watched two episodes and enjoyed every 80’s flashback second.

I had actually forgotten how good the 2 hour pilot was, granted it’s got some cheesy dialog and laughable (by today’s standards) clothing, but I think Vice still gives today’s cop shows a run for their money. The picture quality of the two episodes we’ve watched so far seemed quite decent and yes the original music is all intact with the audio 5.1 surround. My only real complaint is the double sided discs, but hey after 10 years or so of waiting I’ll take what I can get. I haven’t had a chance to check out some of the supplemental materials but hopefully I’ll do so tonight, if I can pry my girlfriend away from the Apprentice.
