Overview

Season Three of the too-hip-for-the-room crime series Miami Vice opens with a bang as the beloved Ferrari of Dade County undercover vice cop Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) is accidentally blown up. This, however, proves easier to take than the jolt delivered to Crockett's partner Ricardo Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) in a later episode, in which Tubb's mercurial ex-partner Izzy Moreno (Martin Ferrero) frames him on a kidnapping charge. Nor are the two cops' colleagues spared anxiety this season, as witness the shock and awe experience by Det. Gina Calabrese (Sandra Santiago) is handed evidence that her current lover is an IRA terrorist, in an episode featuring a young Liam Neeson. The worst is reserved for Det. Larry Zito (John Diehl), a regular since the series' inception, when Zito is abruptly killed in the line of duty in the two-part episode "Down for the Count." This installment also upholds the Miami Vice tradition of showcasing quirky guest stars, in this instance boxing promoter Don King. Other prominent players showing up this season include Laurence Fishburne as a corrupt prison guard in "Walk Alone," Willie Nelson as the bedraggled title character in "El Viejo," which also features Steve Buscemi; Stanley Tucci as an adoption racketeer in "Baby Blues"; Wesley Snipes as a smooth hoodlum named Silk in "Street Wise"; andHang S. Ngor, the former Cambodian doctor whose real-life persecution at the hands of the Pol Pot regime were re-enacted in the theatrical feature The Killing Fields, as a Vietnamese detective in "Duty and Honor." This last-named episode also introduces Helena Bonham-Carter as Theresa, a heroin-addicted doctor with whom Crockett briefly falls in love. Also: John Leguizamo returns as the slimy head of the Calderon crime family in "The Afternoon Plane"; onetime Star Trek-er George Takei is seen along with Miami Vice star Don Johnson's then-wife Melanie Griffith in "By Hooker By Crook"; future Oscar winner Benicio del Toro pays his acting dues as a minor heavy in "Everybody's in Showbiz"; and the great Dutch actor Jeroen Krabbe figures prominently in the Season Three finale, "Heroes of the Revolution."

I have season One and Two, what a terrific series! The guest stars such as Ving Rhames, Giancarlo Esposito and so many others, went on to become terrific actors. You won't regret buying these sets. They are awesome!

I began watching Miami Vice when my father bought it. Everybody laughed at him for buying it but he wanted me to give it a try. I've loved everyhting about it since the beginning. The music by Jan Hammer is fabulous. I am so excited for season 3 & 4 to come out soon.

For anyone who said the series started to decline in season 3 they do not know what they are talking about...Season 3 is arguably the best season of the show....They made some changes..Crockett's car was changed from the black Corvette to the white Ferrari..Crockett's wardrobe changed..Less pastels and white sport coats and more darker colored sportscoats...The storylines were also more grittier and darker but stayed true to the show's roots...Also, check out the episode featuring Don Johnson's then wife Melanie Griffith...

I didn't start watching Miami Vice until the end of Season 2. Actually saw it on TV but happened across it accidentally one night and was hooked!!! (Dating myself now but I really did see these shows when they first aired!) BTW...Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith were not actually married when they did "By Hooker By Crook"...they didn't get married until later. I only have Seasons 1 and 2 right now but am on the verge of getting Season 3 just so I can watch that episode again...it was HOT!!!!!!

My husband loved this series growing up, so when my son was looking for something for a "just because" present for his dad, we picked up a couple of seasons of Miami Vice for him.

Vice was my favorite show on the tube when it was popular. I set my VCR to record it when I wasn't home. I just loved watching the recording the next day. I now have 3 seasons and the last 2 seasons will be added to this collection. The music, action, and Crockett's car is something I really can't get enough of.
