    Never thought I'd say this, but you've genuinely made me interested in checking out a cop show. (Besides Cop Rock).

    I'm thrilled, really. Like anything of this sort, there's a lot of chaff, but parts of it really are brilliant and that cinematography is unlike anything else.

    Been awhile since I've seen the whole show so I can't give a ton of specific recommendations if you don't want to marathon the whole thing (probably ill-advised). Off the top of my head the initial 5-episode serial is pretty groundbreaking, though the familiar trappings aren't all in place yet. "Out Where the Buses Don't Run" from Season 2 seems to be regarded as the show's finest hour, though.

    Yeah Josh thanks! I do have vague memories of watching this occasionally when I was younger but other than that I have not really paid attention to it. I will as with the commenter above go away and check some out!

    There's a lot more to Miami today than what was laid out here, to be fair. Being from the area, I have a lot of disdain and dislike for a lot of what Miami is – but there's a lot of character to it, a lot of good there, some good communities, etc. Just like any large city. The interesting thing – and perhaps the net negative – is that a lot of the "bad" I see seems to come from a weird desire people seem to have to reenact things like Miami Vice or Bad Boys or Vice City etc. – the myth of Miami, I guess.
