I was bored today, so I watched Miami Vice on TNN.
I never cared for the show when it originally aired, and I don’t really think much of it now, either. One thing did strike me as amusing though…
In the opening montage, the Miami Vice theme song plays, and random shots of whatever fly by… there’s a part of the music that sounds like congas pounding… The first time the “pum-pumpumpa pum pum pum” sound plays, they show major cleavage jiggling away. That was the best part of the show. lol what timing! That had to be deliberately done that way. hehe
Anyway, I never “got” why the show was so popular then, and I still don’t. FWIW, I do think it was one of the first shows to use REAL soundtrack music by the original artists, instead of cheap generic covers. Everytime I hear “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins, I get MV flashbacks.
