The colors, the sportscoats, the cars… that stupid crocodile. If there was any TV show that represented 1980s America, it was Miami Vice. Running on NBC from 1984 to 1989, Miami Vice was an uber-stylized police drama that created 1980s culture as much as it reflected it. (Will any man ever wear a pastel green sportcoat ever again?) We have most of the series’ episodes below.
