Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat Gina investigates an East German spy who might also we responsible for her mother’s death in season 3’s final episode Heroes of the Revolution. On This Week in Vice we’ll be covering when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from to May 4 – 10, 1987, when Miami Vice was King.
Of all the news and controversies in the 80’s, this one might be the most contentious. On May 7, Cheers would end its fifth season and would be the final episode for Shelley Long and ending the “Sam and Diane” story on the show. Beginning in season 6, Rebecca, played by Kristy Alley, would replace Diane and and remain for the rest of the show. You’re either a Diane or Rebecca fan of Cheers. Personall, I’m a Diane.
We’re going to replace one classic with another. Moving Aretha Franklin and George Michael from the Hot 100 is the amazing love ballad (I Just) Died in Your Arms from the English rock band Cutting Crew. From the album Broadcast the song would be the biggest hit for the band, spending 2 weeks at number one on the Hot 100.
The Secret of My Success still has the box office for one more week, so we gotta go to the archives. Buried by The Secret of My Success is the comedy-drama film Project X. Starring Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt the movie centers around a secret Air Force test on chimpanzee’s and the attempted liberation by Broderick and Hunt. The film had much controversy, including a lawsuit from The Price Is Right host Bob Barker for animal cruelty. I mostly remember being so sad at the end of this movie and not understanding why its a comedy.
And that’s everything you need to know that was happening when Miami Vice was king. Be sure to join us on Go With The Heat at gowiththeheat.com. I’d love to hear from you! Email the show firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Twitter @domcorriveau. That’s all for this week, bye pals.
