Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat has the Vice digs deep into the troubling circumstances of a Gubernatorial candidate in the episode Vote of Confidence . On This Week in Vice we’ll be taking a look back when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Feb. 8 to 14, 1988, when Miami Vice was king.
On Feb. 13 the Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada kicked off and would be the beginning of the Winter Olympic surge in popularity. Taking place over two weeks, the Games saw significant TV viewership increases helped develop Canada into one of the top Winter Olympic nations. The Calgary Olympics also include two fantastic underdog stories. First is the famedJamaican Bobsled Team competing, competing for the first time and the subject of the movie Cool Runnings. Second is Eddie “The Eagle”, the first person to compete in the ski jump from Great Britain since 1928 and would finish dead last, but setting personal bests.
INXS’ short run at the top of the Hot 100 comes to an end and is replaced by Could’ve Been by Tiffany. From her debut album, this is the third single released and her second number 1. At just 16 years old, Tiffany became the youngest woman to have a number one album.
With Good Morning, Vietnam still ruling the box office we go to the archives. Its no secret I’m a junkie for 80’s action and the next few weeks has some of the best and cheesiest action movies of the decade. Starring Carl Weathers, Vanity, Craig T. Nelson and Sharon Stone is Action Jackson. The movie received poor feedback from critics, who are a bunch of people who don’t know how to have a good time. I don’t care what anyone says, Carl Weathers in a bonafide action stars of the 80’s and Vanity is a gem.
