Hi pals, coming up on this week’s episode of Go With The Heat we’re kicking off season 5 of Miami Vice and part 3 of the Sonny Burnett arc in the episode Hostile Takeover. On This Week In Vice we’re taking a look back to when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Oct. 30 to Nov. 5, 1988, when Miami Vice was King.
On Nov. 4 midway through the Geraldo talk show while taping the episode titled “Teen Hatemongers” a scuffle broke out. The fight included people on the show and attendees in the crowd and ended with Rivera being punched in the face and his nose broken. I guess he got what he wanted.
On Nov. 2 the first widely known computer worm started working its way through the internet. Known as the Morris Worm it infected thousands of computers including government systems. Named after its creator Robert Morris it was the felony conviction under the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
After a wild summer of music its time to slow things down a bit. Its good fro everyone to take a nice vacation to a small island, cause that’s where we want to go. Kokomo from The Beach Boys reaches the top of the Hot 100 for just one week. From their album Still Cruisin’ and the Cocktail soundtrack, this song was the their first number one since 1966.
The busy summer movie schedule is winding down and Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers will hold the box office for one more weekend. Also in theaters is Taylor Hackford classic Everybody’s All-American. Starring Jessica Lange, Dennis Quaid and John Goodman the film follows the life a former college football star. Though not received well by critics the movie is still one I enjoy.
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.
