Hi pals, coming up on this weeks episode of Go With The Heat the Vice team hunts down a rogue foreign CIA agent with the help of the French police in the episode French Twist. On This Week in Vice we'll be covering when this episode of Miami Vice aired, from Feb. 16 to the 22, 1986, when Miami Vice was King.
On Feb. 20 the Soviet Union launched the Mir Space Station into low Earth orbit. As the first modular space station, it would gain additional components from various other missions until 1996. The Mir was continously inhabited and welcomed scientists from several Asian, European and North American nations. The Mir Space Station would eventually be retired and would make Earth re-entry on March 23, 2001 after spending 5,510 days in orbit with 4,592 days occupied.
Finally, after 4 weeks at the top What Friends Are For relents and we have a new song at the top of the Hot 100. How Will I Know from Whitney Houston becomes her second number one song form her debut album. Released in 1985, the album had slow commercial response, but eventually generated three number one songs and sold over 30 million copies worldwide. The love/pop song crossover was a commercial and critical success and still one of the most memorable Houston songs of her career.
Down and Out in Beverly Hills will hold onto the weekend for two more weeks, but that's alright with me. This will give me a chance to talk about the amazing, fantastic Chuck Norris movie The Delta Force. Starring the one and only Chuck Norris and Lee Marvin in his final role, the film is a mess in all the right ways. Not only panned, but despised by critics, the action movie still finished third in the weekend behind Down and Out and The Color Purple, but finishes first in my heart. I love bad movies and the 80's is full of them.
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 me on Twitter @domcorriveau. That's all for this week, bye pals.
