Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat Trudy investigates a possible UFO connection when a body disappears from the morgue in the episode Missing Hours. On This Week in Vice we’ll be taking a look back when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Nov. 9 to Nov. 15, 1987, when Miami Vice was king.
On Nov. 15 Continental Airlines Flight 1713 crashed leaving Denver International Airport en route to Boise, Idaho during a snow storm. A wing from the plane struck the ground on take-off, causing the plane to roll and fireball inside the cabin. 25 of the 77 passengers and 3 crew members of 5 died in the accident. The NTSB attributed poor piloting and improper deicing to the crash of the Douglas DC-9 aircraft.
With Tiffany still at the top of the Hot 100 we go to the archives. Peaking at number 4 this week is Little Lies from Fleetwood Mac. From the album Tango in the Night its the third single and reached number one on the Adult Contemporary charts. Although I’m not much of a Fleetwood Mac fan, this is my favorite from the band.
Believe it or not, this is the last week Fatal Attraction will be at the top of the box office, so lets go back to the archives one last time. Instead of looking back, I’m going to look forward to a film that will be lost behind Running Man. Released on Nov. 18 is The Last Emperor, a masterful biopic of the last emperor of China. The film is a spanning epic and critically acclaimed, winning 9 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Considering the movies that surround The Last Emperor, its often forgotten and is a truly a masterful piece of artwork.
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 us on Twitter @gowiththeheat. That’s all for this week, bye pals.
