Hi pals, coming up on this week’s episode of Go With The Heat the team has to protect a bratty punk rocker who’s a witness in a drug lord’s trial in the episode Line of Fire. On This Week In Vice we’re taking a look back to when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Dec. 11 to Dec. 17, 1988, when Miami Vice was King.
On Dec. 16 crackpot and conspirarist Lyndon LaRouche was found guilty of mail fraud and attempting to defraud the IRS. In January 1989 LaRouche was sentenced to 15 years in prison but would be released in 1994. 13 additional associates of LaRouche were found guilty of mail fraud and conspiracy as well.
Look Away by Chicago continues their reign on the top of the Hot 100 for one more week so we go to the archives. Peaking at number three is Giving You the Best that I Got by Anita Baker. From the album of the same name the song was nominated for 4 Grammy Awards and the certified platinum album won a Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. This was the highest performing song by Baker and her only number one pop album.
Over the last few weeks we’ve had quite the roundtable of movies. From They Live to Scrooged its been quite the mix of movies with constant change at the top of the Box Office. Its time to settle down now as we’ll have the same number one for the next 3 weeks. What could possible top Child’s Play or the Land Before Time? How about the buddy comedy film Twins. You heard me…
Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito the film follows the long lost brothers who were separated at birth who are different in both appearance and personality. Of all the Schwarzenegger films of the 80’s, this is the one I’d like to forget. However, Danny DeVito is always a treat.
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.
