Favorite Couple: Ricardo Tubbs x Sonny Crockett

Meg Trogolo, Staff Writer

Quarantine makes for strange guilty pleasures. Mine is “Miami Vice.” The guilt is because it’s about cops, but the pleasure is the perfectly balanced main duo. Ricardo Tubbs, a classy, flirtatious, smart New Yorker, finds himself stuck undercover in Miami with Sonny Crockett, a stylish but rough local (who, from my queer point of view, is strongly coded as bi). Within a few episodes, they’re ready to take a bullet for each other. They have each other’s backs, look fantastic together, are usually about six inches apart, and always put their partnership first in the end. Sometimes when I have an episode playing in the background, I find myself saying, “just kiss him already!”
