I will start season two as I did season 1. With a study of the Miami Vice logo. They keep it interesting as the changes or variations continue with the season premiere, episode 23, Prodigal Son. They raise the position of the logo on the screen slightly from it’s season 1 position.
23: Prodigal Son
Where episodes 5 thru 22 had Miami in gray, episode 23 gets more colorful and has Miami in a teal green. Vice goes to Purple and we retain the backlighting but it is far thinner in this episode.
24: Whatever Works
Miami switches to green like we saw in episodes 2,3, and 4. Vice returns to pink and the pink backlighting returns to a bolder, brighter light.
25: Out Where The Buses Don’t Run
The backlighting has more of an orange tint.
26: The Dutch Oven
Miami switches to gray with perhaps a tint of green. Vice goes purple and the backlighting is thin again.
Vice returns to pink and the backlighting returns to being bolder and brighter.
28: Junk Love
29: Tale Of The Goat
31: Bought And Paid For
Vice is now a peach color and the backlighting is orange.
32: Back In The World
Miami returns to gray and the backlighting returns to pink.
33: Phil The Shill
34: Definitely Miami
35: Yankee Dollar
36: One Way Ticket
37: Little Miss Dangerous
38: Florence Italy
39: French Twist
40: The Fix
42: Free Verse
43: Trust Fund Pirates
44: Sons And Lovers
Slight blue tint
Miami is now dark gray.

Unlike season 1, season two ran the same opening montage sequence the entire season. In episode 23 they took the “standard” season 1 opening montage (from Glades) and changed it slightly by replacing the Flagship National Bank segment (16) with the pan of the south side of the court house (17). Everything else (except of course the title logo colors) remained the same. They then ran with this same montage through out the season.
