Do you know the year 'Miami Vice' first came on TV?
The show, of course, starred Don Johnson as James "Sonny" Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs, who played Metro-Dade Police detectives working undercover in Miami. The show has been so influential that the style of 'Miami Vice' has often been borrowed or alluded to by much of contemporary pop culture in order to indicate or emphasize the 1980s decade. Its influence as a popular culture icon was and is still seen decades after appearing. The show premiered today, September 16, in 1984. We're celebrating all things '80s today!
