Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat the team investigates a battle over a frozen Reggae popsicle in the episode The Big Thaw. On This Week in Vice we’ll be taking a look back when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Oct. 19 – 25, 1987, when Miami Vice was king.
On Oct. 20 Major Bruce Teagarden flying a United Air Force A-7D-4-CV Corsair II aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at Indianapolis International Airport en route to Tinker Air Force Base in Nevada. On approach to the airport to make the emergency landing, Teargarden was forced to eject as the plane was short of the runway. The plane would bounce off a roof, an embankment and crash into the lobby of the Ramada Inn. 10 guests in the hotel would die, 9 from the crash and one days later due to significant burns from the fireball that erupted through the hotel.
In the week between Whitesnake and Michael Jackson on the Hot 100 is Lost in Emotion from Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. This is the second number one from Lisa Lisa and their album Spanish Fly in 1987. The album would go platinum and reach number 7 on the Billboard 200. The band would continue their success through the 80’s and into the 90’s, but this would be the last time Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam would reach number one on the Hot 100.
Fatal Attraction still has 4 more weeks at the top of the box office, so we’re still looking through the archives. On Oct. 23 the film Suspect hits screens across the US. The film has a deep cast, starring Cher, Dennis Quaid, Liam Neeson and Joe Mantegna. Written by Eric Roth and directed by Peter Yates the courtroom mystery film is easily overlooked in the shadow of Fatal Attraction and performed admirably, even if the ending is controversial.
