And with the second episode of Miami Vice we’re not only introduced to the secondary cast but the particular relationship the show has with both sex workers and the stress of working undercover.
Now we’re gonna get into the second half of the 1984 Miami Vice pilot episode, “Brother’s Keeper,” which aired in two parts and which I stuck to for posting about it, because that’s a lotta Miami Vice. First part here. In this episode is the Most Iconic Miami Vice Scene and also an encounter with an actor that is reborn as another character later in the series, much to my delight. For a full summary of this episode, see the Miami Vice wiki entry for “Brother’s Keeper” Miami Vice…
Pilot episodes give you the feel for a show. Miami Vice hits stride on step one and creates the tone it will hold for the first three seasons.
Haha, there is a book I wrote that you can just BUY now. It’s about isolation and betrayal and magic and there’s a talking rabbit.
If you were to ask me why did I write this thing and why I then spent time making it worth sharing, well. I’d have a glib answer, I’m sure.
