I love this show!

i love the 3 main leads but am I alone in this thinking:

I wanna be Tubbs in the Cadillac- dressed like Tubbs all dapper total vegetarian but smoking lucky strikes w/ray bans on drinking Lowenbraeu (although I haven't found it in the states since 2008)while playing it cool like Castillo answering with one word replies...

i prefer the weirdness of PMT 1st solo album to DJ's CDs too...

I do sometimes dress sharp like Tubbs and feel good about it.  Lowenbraeu was my drink of choice in the 80s.

Tubbs dresses sharper than Crockett, but I prefer Don's look not only because it's more iconic to the 80's, but because as a short man, the single breasted blazer style works better for me. Check out my thread where I show my "Crockett's Closet" clothes collection.

Crockett's look is more casual - great look in contrast with Tubbs's more formal look :hippie:

Here's the thing I lived in Miami & to dress like those two you'd die from heatstroke!

In order to get into clubs you have to dress like that, parking is impossible so you have to walk -if you club hop forget it you'd be a sweaty wet mess.

That's what I always thought.  To have to chase down baddies in a Tubbs suit would have been torture.  They only time I remember seeing them sweat was in Definitely Miami.  I know if I dressed like Tubbs I would sweat through those nice clothes before lunch.  At least Crockett could shed the linen blazer for a bit.

I will admit when I wear my Tubbs. look to Sunday church here in southern Nevada I do sweat a lot.  But I l still like the compliments I receive.  So it is worth the suffering. :D

It's a nice drink you don't see it much these days :hippie:

I used to want to drink Old Dusseldorf Longnecker beer from Magnum PI until I found out it wasn't a real beer.

It get's pretty warm and humid during summers where I live too, but to live the vice, donning a blazer is inevitable, even if you literally melt away :-)

Heat is one thing but humidity is another.

the desert is opening an oven while cooking hot but in Florida especially Miami the moisture of humidity is wet & swampy.

you can cut it with a knife - the older I get the more I can't stand it - it suffocates you, ruins good clothes instantly/ruins a good hair day etc.

I don't know the 1st album but I know "Somebody" and I definitely like it. :)

I watched the show as a teen and grew to love the water lifestyle.  Anybody else have a boat like Sonny?  Here's mine.  She's a Columbia 28 sloop built in 1968.  I've had her since 2003 and next year she's 50.

Rad! Since I was a kid watching MV I always thought it would be so cool to live on a boat like his!
