Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat Tubbs and Castillo work undercover to bust drug dealers moving in on Native American land in the episode Indian Wars. On This Week in Vice we’ll be taking a look back when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Feb. 22 to Feb. 28, 1988, when Miami Vice was king.
On Feb. 24 the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hustler Magazine, in a suit brought by televangelist Jerry Falwell. Based on a parody ad in Hustler Magazine in 1983, Falwell sued Larry Flynt for libel and emotional distress. Lower courts cleared Flynt of libel and in 1988 the Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that the ad was protected under the first amendment.
The King of the 80’s is back on top of the Hot 100! Becoming his 6th. number one song and the albums fourth single is George Michael’s classic Father Figure. From the album Faith the song spends two weeks at number one and 14 weeks in the top 40. Father Figure was an immediate success and still one of George Michael’s best.
We’re still in the archives as Good Morning, Vietnam rules the box office. But, it doesn’t matter. This is the film I’ve been waiting for and, in my opinion, in the top 10 best action movies of the decade. Starring the greatest action movie star in the history of the world, in Jean-Claude Van Damme is the movie Bloodsport. Unofficially based on the unsubstantiated claims of Frank Dux the film centers around JCVD as he competes in the Kumite. With JCVD, Bolo Yeung and the music performances from Stan Bush its got everything.
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.
