    Time and ratings will tell. Collateral did not have a past to live up too when it was made.

    As far as "Numb," actually I thought it made a little sense. One of the common themes of the original show (beyond linen jackets) was the idea of the characters going in so deep that they lost themselves in the process (heavy-handed stretching -- becoming numb to everything that's going on around them and losing track of which world they belonged to).
    Have you heard the Jay Z/Linkin Park mix?

    Either way, it should be interesting.

    I'm thinking it's going to bomb.

    I'm thinking you're probably right.

    I don't think there are enough margaritas in the world to make me want to go see this movie, and I grew up watching MV.

    The series sucked too IMO.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    I blame Miami Vice for all the Bling Bling culture we have today.

    I blame Miami Vice for pastel colors, losers who push the sleeves of their sports jackets up their arms and Jan Hammer.

    If they do this, they better change the series and actually come up with a plot. Which the series severely lacked- That gives even mroe credit to Michael Mann as a director who was able to make gold from ****.

    I believe I posted this before but: Bieng arrested by the TV miami vice crockett and tubbs would be like bieng arrested by vanilla ice and michael jackson.

    I hope they take this in the right direction and don't make tubbs some "80's metrosexual" that was too much of a sissy that he couldn't cut it in new york. And crockett? Did he even have a personality? I'm sure he was an insult to every person in miami though.

    The show did well because of it's overall presentation, and I too watched it because it was very well put together which made it very interesting. Watch it again on TV land and you'll see what I'm talking about if you don't remember the show.

    Hey!You know the only good thing I remember from the series.When Crocket would drive around Miami at night in his Dino Ferrari(later Lotus).

    Even in the summer time ,the best mood I could possibly get into is when it's Midnight and I'm driving alone on the highway , "In the Air Tonight" comes on the radio.
