* GenreShift: Not only are the last two seasons' episodes known for becoming gradually more ridiculous and unbelievable than the first three, one episode is actually more or less ''ScienceFiction''.



* SoundtrackDissonance: While the show's soundtrack and MusicVideoFever style are among its main draws, the series is rife with out-of-place examples that can actually be pretty jarring: such as cheery pop music playing as the theme to a violent murder, or an angsty ballad playing during a mellow driving scene.

* HiddenDepths: Consciously and intentionally averted by Crockett, who needs to come across as shallowly as possible for the sake of his job, sanity, and keeping up appearances. In "Definitely Miami", he immediately backtracks on realizing that he's referenced Samuel Beckett's *Waiting for Godot*, to Tubbs' surprise.

* DeepSouth: A few episodes whose plots require that the protagonists to travel outside of Miami involve them dealing with such crises as a turf war between redneck families in the Everglades. Crockett himself is a very stereotypical southerner at times.

Crockett's white-suit-over-t-shirt style, PermaStubble, and Ray-Ban sunglasses all became fashion trends. His lack of socks did not.

''Miami Vice'' was one of the most influential (perhaps ''the'' most influential) TV series of all times when it comes to style and fashion. Crockett's white-suit-over-t-shirt style, PermaStubble, and Ray-Ban sunglasses all became fashion trends. His lack of socks did not. \n Even in the 2010's many people's ideas of the 80's come straight from the series (which explains why many people tend to have a rather exaggerated idea of the period not everybody dressed like the pimps and drug dealers of the series).



* TheEighties: Arguably the most influential TV of said decade. Many people's ideas of the 80's come straight from the series (which explains why many people tend to have a rather exaggerated idea of the period -- not everybody dressed like the pimps and drug dealers of the series).
