There is most definitely a post about this television series somewhere in this forum but I ain't seen one recently so I'll start a new one.
Basically, this TV show is one of the best television shows you will ever watch and GTA fans would obviously know that R* adores Miami Vice (Det. Tubbs, Philip Michael Thomas, voiced Lance Vance in GTA: Vice City) and if you want to see GTA in film-format then I'm telling you, watch this television series. It's an '80s ensemble and influenced the way people dressed and poised themselves back in the day.
I recently bought Season One on DVD and I am loving it; the music, the guns, glitz and glamour, the cocaine, the parties, the corny acting; it's all there and it's brilliant.
I'll give you a brief synopsis of what it's about:
"Stubble-faced detective Crockett lived in a sailboat guarded by his alligator Elvis. His partner Tubbs was a black New York cop looking for his brother's killer. Together they took on the Florida drug world. The show influenced men's fashions toward Italo-casual and interior decor toward the Memphis look. Very trendy music and unusual guest performers."
So yeah, anyone watched it? Favourite scene from this show is this:
