Hi pals, coming up on this week’s episode of Go With The Heat Tubbs and Crockett find themselves mixed up in separate family dramas in the episode To Have and to Hold. On This Week In Vice we’re taking a look back to when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from February 5 to February 11, 1989, when Miami Vice was King.
On Feb. 8 while on final approach to Santa Maria Airport in Pico Alto, Portugal Independent Air Flight 1851 crashed killing all 144 on board in the deadliest plane crash in Portugal’s history. A combination of both ground and aircraft crew errors led to the aircraft to crash into Pico Alto Mountain.
The NBA announces the Hall of Fame class of 1989. This group includes the Boston Celtics great KC Jones and journeyman Lenny Wilkens. Both Jones and Wilkens led prolific careers as both players and coaches.
Goodbye Phil, Two Hearts finally gets knocked off the top of the Hot 100 and in-between Collins and Paula Abdul is a true one hit wonder. Sneaking in for just one week is When I’m With You by the arena rock band Sheriff. From their self-titled album the song originally hit the Hot 100 in 1983 but in 1988 found new radio play, years after the band had already broke up. To add to the strangeness of this song, in the era of video killed the radio star, this song was released both in 1982 and 1988 without a music video.
Rain Man finally relents at the top of the Box Office and a new film finally takes number one. Starring Nick Nolte and Martin Short is the crime-comedy film Three Fugitives. The film follows one career criminal just released from prison and one desperate father robbing a bank to help his sick daughter. The film performed well, regardless of the poor reviews from critics. But as I mentioned before, critics are a bunch of jerks.
