I was exchanging views the other day with one of my friends on this site about 'Miami Vice' as a satire of itself. He said jokingly not to call it a satire. Then, I happened to remember that they were filming a scene for the new CSi:Miami, a year or two ago down by the beach on Biscayne Bay and a real body floated into the set. Which made me think about Alanis Morrisette, which as a music fan I hardly ever do, and her song, 'Ironic.' Some critcs said that she obviously did not know the true definition of the term as seen in the examples she used in the lyrics. I think my illustration satisfies it better. Come to think of it, maybe it is Miami, the actual city, that is a satire of itself. All I know is that I lived in L.A. for 18 years through the 70's and 80's and it was like having a ticket to the freak show and when I moved to South Florida, it was like getting a cameo role.
