Hi pals, coming up on this week’s episode of Go With The Heat Tubbs and Castillo team up to take down a wild drug dealer who’s also being protected by a former CIA operative in the episode Borrasca. On This Week In Vice we’re taking a look back to when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Dec. 4 to Dec. 10, 1988, when Miami Vice was King.
On Dec. 7 a 6.8 earthquake struck Armenia. The Spitak Earthquake killing somewhere between 25,000 to 50,000 people. The earthquake destroyed many buildings and injured over 130,000 residents of the region. Soviet leader Gorbachev cut his rockstar tour of New York short and eventually asked the US for aid to the region, showing the growing relationship between the two countries.
With Will to Power sitting on top of the Hot 100, we need a true hero to come along and save us from this terrible cover song. Luckily Chicago are our knights in shining armour. Moving into number one on the Hot 100 is Look Away by the aformentioned Chicago. From the album Chicago 19 this is the seventh song to reach number one for the band and does not include Peter Cetera who left the band in 1985.
The Christmas classic Scrooged held the box office for just one week but is giving way to one of the funniest movies of all-time. Starring Leslie Nielsen is The Naked Gun: From the Files of the Police Squad!. The slapstick comedy of Nielsen and based on the same character played by Nielsen in the TV show Police Squad! the film would produce two sequels. Legitimately one of the funniest movies ever, this is an under-appreciated classic.
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.
