I disagree. Made for each other is on the silly side' date=' but it does have a heart. The friendship between Stan and Larry was nice and Sonny had a great talk with larry at the end.I am not very keen on Noogie, I always thought he was annoying. But still, a fun episode, but still bottom of the first season. But I would prefer this episode above 80% of the season 4 episodes for example. At least the cast and crew was having some fun.[/quote']Yeah, I agree that Noogie was annoying and irritated the heck out of me! :evil: LOL! :) But, so did "Made For Each Other"...and it wasn't just because they included both Noogie and Izzy in the same episode...although that seriously added to the irritation and stupidity. :p But, even though I liked Stan and Larry...that episode was just pointless and almost an "SNL" spoof of a "MV" episode--it was stupid! :thumbsdown: But, that's just my opinion--totally respect those who like it. :thumbsup: After all...it still is "MV". :cool:However, I actually like most of Season 4 and 5 episodes...I don't think those seasons are as "horrible" as some make them out to be. ;) There are some very bad and/or poor episodes in those seasons... (Season 4's "Missing Hours" is not only the worst episode of the series...but possibly in TV history, and Season 5's "Miracle Man" was pretty ridiculous) but as a whole the seasons are still pretty awesome! :clap: So, I'd rather watch several Season 4 or 5 episodes over "Made For Each Other". :done:

Evan. One of the greatest episodes of the whole series. William Russ should have won  Emmy award for his performance as Evan Freed. Another favourites from S1: No Exit, Milk Run, Smuggler's Blues, Nobody Lives Forever

I have yet to make a ranking list for S1. :)  Although I know "Brother's Keeper" is my number one. 

So far so good. :D

   It would have to be Brothers keeper for me. It's where it all started and was built from. Crocketts intro was pretty bad ass as his image was a little ragged out from partying all night into the morning but also really driving home his style in that opening. Gives a good character feel of what his job does to him. It's where Tubbs and Crockett team up as well.

   Calderone's return part 2 is a close second w/ great scenery matching tunes on the boat on the way to get Calderone and on the way back to Miami among other things.

There can be no doubt in anybody's mind ever that Miami Vice was groundbreaking television for its day. They just got it so incredibly right with season one. Name one episode of season 1 that positively sucks, I dare you. They managed to even make a daft episode like "Made for Each Other" not only forgivable, but really very entertaining for all the right reasons. Episodes like "Give A Little, Take A Little" or "The Maze" may not have been S1's strong points, but they're still good.

My all-time favorite episode, not just of S1 but of the whole series, is Lombard. A break from the norm of standard drug busts, but a refreshing one at that, delivered the usual unique Michael Mann way, and with a haunting theme to boot that to me counts as one of Jan Hammer's all-time best. I also really like Calderone's Return and Golden Triangle, and  great episodes like The Home Invaders or Evan. But somehow, Lombard has always been the undisputed number one for me. ;)
