Today’s prompt took me in a completely different direction than I would have thought. Vice led to Miami Vice and that led to television shows in the eighties.
Show of hands, how many of you grew up in the eighties?? What was your favorite television show? I can remember watching shows like Alf, Growing Pains, The Wonder Years and The A-Team.
But, Miami Vice was one of my favorites. I guess, being a kid back then, I didn’t realize how serious the show was. Back in the eighties, the time when the cocaine craze was taking place, a lot of the episodes focused on two Miami cops solving cases involving drugs and murder. Of course, it was just entertainment, right?! The main hype was the eye candy in the form of Don Johnson’s character, the “stylish” clothes worn by the duo and the upbeat soundtrack of the show. Every episode involved a bad guy, an action-packed hour of Crockett and Tubbs chasing them down, and they always got their man!
Today was a good day, a lot of reminiscing about the good things of the past. Honestly, there’s not much good I remember from back in those days, maybe that’s why I can remember the shows I liked. They were always a good escape from reality.
