Miami Vice- In the Air Tonight

Miami Vice is one of my favorite cop shows of all time, along with the original Hawaii 5-0. Vice came along when I was young, and its editing and use of music were then revolutionary for those of us that were used to the plethora of cop shows out there that shot their stories with the camera five feet in the air and with as little set ups as possible. The show ran for a few years, and there were great, okay, so-so and terrible episodes, but nothing equaled the sequence here from the pilot. I know this might look like ordinary stuff today, but this upcoming sequence basically made this show. Oh, and the song from Phil Collins is uber-cool as well.
