Beschreibungen

Miami Vice captures the glitter and glamour embodied by Crockett and Tubbs and offers students an anatomy of a ground-breaking work in the police procedural genre. Explores Miami Vice’s combination of disparate influences (MTV, film noir, soap opera, ‘high concept’ action films) as well as the social, cultural and industrial moments when it burst onto the network Introduces readers to major components of televisual analysis--style, storytelling, the television show as commodity and ideological critique-- that illustrate the show’s unique features Provides a model for students’ own assessment of other shows, and confirms precisely how--and on what terms--Miami Vice redefined the police drama and an era

"All in all, the careful, detailed analysis of the various contexts of network television turns this study into a useful handbook especially for film students who can use it as blueprint for analysing other series." (European Journal of American Studies, 2011) "[Lyons] displays, in addition to still other virtues, an attentiveness to visual texture and theme as refined as that in the best film criticism. This book offers the richest account of a single television program I've ever read, describing a defining show of the Reagan years...Lyons's treatment of the series' conflicted ideology is equally illuminating." (Cinema Journal, 1 June 2011)

Art Deco interiors, neon-wrought nighttime cityscapes, high-styled men's fashions, "designer stubble," and perhaps most importantly, an aesthetic approach to mood, music, and visual style unlike anything else in television history'.
