Season 2: 1985-86

The excitement continues on its same fast pace as last season. We get more stories involving the rest of the squad as lead investigators, which enriches the relationships of the team as a whole, instead of a myopic POV of just the lead pair of detectives.

Season 3: 1986-87

A darker, grittier Vice has arrived. The Daytona is history, replaced by a sleeker, meaner Testarossa. The clothes are darker, the attitude is rougher, and the music takes on a harder, deeper edge.

Season 4: 1987-88

The season we all went on a Strange Ride. A season that in some ways both lost its primary direction and its mission, while at the same time trying to towards look at new ones. A mid-season change in Sonny’s personal life begins an arc that leaves us with a super-charged season-ending cliffhanger.

Season 5: 1988-89

Resurrection and Redemption. The opening episodes conclude the arc begun halfway through last season. Some of the old focus is back in many of the episodes, but the overall feel has been altered dramatically from the earlier seasons with the departure of musician Jan Hammer and the arrival of musician Tim Truman. The way is paved for potential pilots, and a very Miami Vice styled end to the run.
