Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat the duo have to decide if they should bring down a serial killer or a major drug dealer in the episode Honor Among Theives. On This Week in Vice we’ll be taking a look back when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Feb. 29 to March 6, 1988, when Miami Vice was king.
On March 2, the 30th. annual Grammy Awards took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Hosted by Billy Crystal, the night included many classics with U2 winning album of the year for Joshua Tree. Robin Williams would take home a Grammy for Best Comedy Recording and winning Best Song is Somewhere Out There from the movie An American Tail.
With George Michael still holding the top spot on the Hot 100, we go to the archives. At this point in time, there are two different songs in the top 5 on the Hot 100 from the movie Dirty Dancing. These are in addition to (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life which reached number one just a few weeks ago. At number 5 is Hungry Eyes by Eric Carmen. Written by the same songwriters as (I’ve Had), its not the most important song this week. Reaching number 3 is She’s Like the Wind from Wendy Fraser and the one and only Patrick Swayze. Co-written by Swayze its the one thing from Dirty Dancing worth remembering.
Good Morning, Vietnam is still (still) King of the box office so we’re digging DEEP into the archives. Released on Feb. 26 is Frantic starring Harrison Ford and directed by Roman Polanski. The mystery-thriller film was a box office flop, but well received by critics praising Ford’s performance.
