Miami Vice dreams?

I wasn't much of a Miami Vice fan back in the day. The man apparently was, though. He'd told me before how Crockett and Tubbs solved such tough cases that they often needed time off afterwards. And he'd quote Edward James Olmos's character saying "Crockett, Tubbs, take all the time you need."

The man always hogs the covers. Always. It's my own fault for staying up late and not being there to defend my side of the bed. By the time I get there, he's twisted and turned and otherwise made a mockery of what was once an even covering. The sheet is yanked to his side and the top spread has been shoved to my side. I don't even understand how he does it, but it's the same every night and I have to gently sort it out when I climb in.

Last night as I was fixing the covers, the man stirred. I heard this half-asleep yet spot-on Edward James Olmos voice say: "Take all the covers you need."

Ah, Miami Vice, the show that made the twelve o'clock shadow and pastels cool!

At the time it was a “must see” show on TV, but I think would look silly today, much like Starsky and Hutch.

Yeah Miami Vice was so very fashionable that it doesn't hold up outside of its era.

Knobbly bits?

LOL. I'm not buying that as an excuse for cover rotations!

    I totally know that feeling. This place is a placid puddle compared to that tempest.

    Hi Jayne!

    Yeah, I'd wait for Netlfix or something. I'll see it again on the small screen just to see if I still feel the same about it.

    More TSCC bits I'm thinking of:

    Hi Roxy!

    Thanks for the review - great stuff, as usual.

    I haven't been able to bring myself to see TG yet, and probably will wait until it's On Demand (because OD has that necessary FF feature),…

    Hi TN :)

    It's not like I keep up much either. I hadn't even posted in here in year (wow, time flies!). I do miss hanging out on LJ, but once most of the community I knew had dispersed, it just…
