Six down, six to go!

THE THRILL IS GONE

TONIGHT: Kane takes on the Big Show in an Extreme Rules match for the ECW Championship! Tale of the Tape is displayed, but....they still don't tell us WHY?!?

CABLE GUIDE: Will the Big Show's domination as Champion continue? (L). (TV-14)CC


2.2

TONIGHT: The Big Show! The Monster Kane! The ECW World Title! Extreme! TONIGHT! TONIGHT! TONIGHT!

LET THE BODIES HIT THE ELEVATED ENZYME LEVELS!

LIVE from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, MI (profile.myspace.com) 25.7.6, THIS is ECW #7 on Sci Fi! SAP transmitido en espanol! Already in the TV-14-DLSV ring are MIKE KNOX & HIS GIRLFRIEND KELLY KELLY KELLY KELLY KELLY KELLY KELLY. "Before my match tonight, I just wanna show everybody somethin' that you all can enjoy." Let Us Take a Special Video Look at Kelly - wow, I guess the technique doesn't just apply to old ECW matches - all that editing DOES make it look like she knows how to strip! But...I thought Knox DIDN'T enjoy this. Song is, once again, "Chelsea" by Stefy. Back to the ring: "Like I said last week, though...Kelly...you can never take your clothes off in public again." BOOOOOO! "Let me remind you what happened last week." Let Us Take You Back To Last Week Where Kelly Got Caned - this transitions to an inset so that we can see that Knox at least appears sad about how things went down. Multiple angles for the caning - just like Kelly's upcoming DVD release! "Now I have no doubt in my mind the Sandman hit you on purpose! And people said - people said I abandoned you. I didn't abandon you - I ran to the back as fast as I possibly could to get the EMTs for you. Kelly...I would NEVER abandon you." I think she's buying it ('cause she's an airhead)! "And Sandman, you wanna treat MY girl this way? Then I want everybody to watch and see how I treat The Sandman."

THE SANDMAN (making his way to the ring) v. MIKE KNOX (currently in the ring - from Phoenix, AZ - weighing 260 pounds) - Sandy's entrance sure is indicative of the tribe of the extreme, boy, yeah. Beer me! Headbutt me, can! Oh, those poor soaked children in the front row. Tightrope walk on the barrier! Crappy music! Well apparently this match isn't being held under the ever popular "extreme rules" because an argument has ensued between Sandman and referee "Extreme" Mickie Jenson about the weaponry - finally the cane's headed out as Knox surprises Sandman with a right as he turns back. Kneedrop, knee, knee, knee, knee, knee. Right right right right right right right right right. Picks him up - right, Sandma right, right, right, Knox knee, takeover, Sandman with an elbow to the gut - white Russian legsweep (but really, can you still call it that when there's no cane involved?) and out goes Sandman to find it. Kelly's inexplicably up on the apron - maybe she thinks the match is over and this would be a good time to take off...I dunno, her shoes, probably. We all know she won't show off the goods! Sandy DOES have the stick and Henson is vociferously protesting. Kelly now IN the ring and shielding Knox. Sandman swings - but stops short seeing that there's a woman in front of him. (NOW THAT'S EXTREME) Sandman exhorts Kelly to get out of the way - she doesn't - oh, look, TEST is in and that's the cherry on top of this sandwich. (DQ 0:58) Knox and Test stomping away. Right by Knox, scooped up by Test and there's the We Haven't Named It F-5-Alike Yet. Play Test's music! Replay of Test's clothesline and Test's "swinging neckbreaker." Knox and Test walk out all smiles - Kelly presumably is back there somewhere...because Knox just SAID he'd never abandon her

TONIGHT: EXTREME RULES ECW WORLD TITLE KANE vs BIG SHOW why is Kane competing

NEXT MONDAY: Umaga takes on Shawn Michaels! Hey, remember the last time Umaga took on Shawn Michaels? GOD set off all the pyro in the arena to keep Vince McMahon from finishing the job with his chair - only, it wasn't really God. It was just a pyro dude that McMahon fired the next week for not following the tenets of McMahonism - ahhh. Good times. What a great show.

AD BREAK: Geico (Burt Bacharach)
"The Descent" in theatres August 4 - aka "Dirty, Wet People"
Just for Men for men
Hilarious midgets for Burger King
SciFi image spot
(local) Subway
(local?) Nissan Altima
SciFi Pictures Original "Stan Lee's Light Speed"
SciFi's "Who Wants to Be A Superhero?"

Take a Look at this beautiful Detroit vista! (It's beautiful because it's so DARK outside)

Backstage, Test and Knox yuk it up. Test is apparently speaking Canadian because I can't understand a WORD he says. Something about kicking Head into the crowd, I think. Test says that they are dominant, and together, he and Knox are dominant. Knox offers "unstoppable." Test: "And your girl...your girl." Knox stops him. "Nah nah, not like that. I agree, I totally agreeaboutchergirlit'slike" Thankfully, Tommy Dream appears with a trash can before I consider attempting to use the closed captioning to translate whatever the heck Test is saying. Two refs and one security guy cannot contain Dreamer! Oh, wait, they can. Knox and Test beat a retreat. Kelly is...probably taking her clothes off somewhere. I don't know.

Meanwhile, in the Red Wings locker room, Heyman addresses...somebody: "I don't even know why you're doing this. Let me get this straight. You wanna challenge the Big Show to a title match?" Pan right - it's Sabu! And he's...not speaking! But...he speaks perfect English! I heard him! "He's not a man, he's a giant! He's seven feet tall! He's five hundred pounds! Do you have any idea what he's gonna to do Kane out there in that ring tonight? In an Extreme Rules match, The Big Show is gonna rip Kane limb from limb with his bare hands! Don't get me wrong, Sabu - I'd LOVE to see the match. No one knows what you're capable of better than I do. But...I can't do this. No, I WON'T make the match. Not tonight, not next week, not next month, not ever. The match can't happen. As a matter of fact, I don't even want you to compete tonight. You're too emotional right now! I would like you to please take the night off. Thank you very much for your contributions this evening." Walking off...he stops and turns back to Little Guido tying his boots. "Excuse me?" "What?" "What, do you think I'm stupid, I'm deaf? I didn't hear what you said?" "What are you talkin' about, I'm getting dressed, I didn't say a word." "If you have a problem with the way I run ECW, why don't you just say it to my face? Don't mutter under your breath!" "You've meant a lot to me, I've never had a problem with you. I don't understand." "I'm the LIFEBLOOD of ECW! And this is how you treat me?!" Guido is perplexed. Heyman nods - and the "private security" get to stepping, all over Guido - extreme kicks, and a nightstick choke (GHOST OF BIG BOSS MAN!)
2.2

and then run him into the wall. A few more boots. "Okay, that's enough! That's enough. Guido...can you hear me? I just want to make sure that you know ... that your match is NEXT. Take him, drag his ass OUT to the ring." And you know what? They DO!

AD BREAK: Stan Lee talks about ECW, then somehow masterfully segues it into an ad for "Who Wants To Be A Superhero? - yeah, I was kidding about "masterfully""
"Pulse," opening August 11
Burger King (again with the midgets)
X Games 12, live on ESPN starting August 3rd
TAG body spray
Tinactin's creepy house of claymation and John Madden
"Accepted" opening August 11 - hi, I'm a Mac.

"I was born in Chicago, and I was raised on the streets, and I saw a lot of guys come and go that were handed everything they ever had on a silver platter while I had to fight and scrape and claw for everything I am. I'm disciplined enough to wait - but now the wait's over, and this kid from the streets lives out his dream in one week when I debut in ECW - my name is C.M. PUNK." Damn, this guy sure talks a lot!

THAT VAMPIRE GUY (with Ariel) v. LITTLE GUIDO (dragged to the ring by Paul Heyman's version of the S1W) - Commentators STILL don't have a name for the man standing in the ring. Nice tie. Ariel looks...different. Over/under: 1 minute. Clothesline. Stomp, stomp, stomp, five forearms over the shoulder, rearranging the jaw with a chinlock plus claws in the face - and there's a lift and drop by the jaw. I think Ariel has a lot more makeup on, or something. She's up on the apron, and some...licking or something. I guess all the kids are into it. Guido manages a gutshot - kick - oops, next kick is caught - lifts him up and after a fashion, there's a powerbomb. Again to the choke. I think he hissed at him. "Finish him!" she screams. Okay - up on the shoulders - ankles left on the ropes - and dropped in a neckbreaker while his ankles were still on the ropes. Guido's out. Hmm, I guess he ISN'T done. Stomp, stomp. Into the corner, clothesline followup. Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. Stops at 4. Ref is...bald. Sorry, I don't have a name for you. Guido STILL has his vest on. Aaaaaand looks like another powerbomb coming up - oh, more of a crucifix bomb! How apropos? 1, 2, 3. (2:20) Ariel's in and crawling - that skirt is entirely too long for a company like this - is he gonna bite her? Well, let's look at the replays first. Security guards walking away, check. Unique neckbreaker, nice. Razor's Edge, okay. And most importantly, what a smart tie/sleeveless shirt/vest combo he's wrestling in! Oh hey, FINALLY a nice upskirt for the fellas as Ariel parts the ropes with her crotch.

Let's Take A Special Video Look At Extreme Superstar KANE! He's a monster! Pain has always been his best friend (he says)! You'll See No Evil When He Opens The Gates Of Hell And Causes Me To Capitalize Every Word In The Sentence ohh wait, it's done. He's laughing. Ahahahahaha. I still have NO idea how they explain him being on this show.

WORLD TITLE: GRAPHIC (not violent graphic, but it's a graphic on the screen) TONIGHT!

AD BREAK: "Who Wants To Be A Superhero?" (ENOUGH ALREADY)
Scinema Saturday's "Alien Abduction"
"Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" opening August 4
Dish Network
Gamefly
X Games 12 (again)
THE LEGENDS OF PROGRESSIVE HEAVY METAL ARE BACK - YES - HELMET'S "MONOCHROME" IS FINALLY HERE JULY 18TH (wait, that was LAST week) - get it at Circuit City

"THE REJECT" SHANNON MOORE - is - looking at YOU

BALLS MAHONEY (Nutley, NJ - 310 pounds) v. JUSTIN CREDIBLE (ready for action - Ozone Park, NY - 225 pounds) - Tazz can't stop saying "Balls" - I don't think that's as infections as Hep C. Knee by Credible, right, right, right, off the ropes...but caught in a powerslam by Mahoney. OR SHOULD I SAY "BALLS." Head to the buckle, HE WANTS TO HEAR IT, balls, balls, balls, balls, whoooooooa balls. Kick to the head for good measure. Credible tries to crawl out but Balls has an ankle. Elbowdrop to the back of the neck. Neck vice - sorry, EXTREME neck vice by Mahoney. Referee "Extreme" Mike Posey checks in but Credible won't give up on that. Credible punches out. Right hand by Credible. Credible against the ropes - Balls cries out "SCREW YOU" and lands a Super Kwang that takes clotheslines BOTH of them outside, also somehow causing a top turnbuckle cover to fall off - hmmm, I hope this doesn't telegraph the finish!)
2.3

Balls landed on his feet, though, and lands another right. Credible tries to take off - Balls meets him up the aisle and grabs two handfuls of ears. This isn't Extreme Rules, by the way. Got him back in - but Credible strikes first with a legdrop, back up and spinning into another legdrop, a THIRD, 1, 2, no. Gutshot - off the ropes with a (sorta) DDT - and Credible again gets 2. Credible staying on him - NICE Northern Lights suplex! Bridge - 1, 2, no. Credible to the - we'll say "abdominal stretch" with an arm trap but there's also a head vice in there. Now to the standard headlock to make my life easier, thanks. Mahoney elbows out but Credible takes him back down with a handful of hair. Dropkick off the ropes! Cover - only 2. Credible brings him up, and snapmares him down - and back to a chinlock. Do they have this much time? I thought there was a sixty second limit. Come to think of it - with two "ECW originals" taking on each other, can either man REALLY win this match? Knee between the shoulderblade and Credible pulls back while Balls begs the crowd to chant his name. It's not working so well. "C'MON PEOPLE!" Credible down to a headlock - amplifying it by kicking himself up and falling back down. Balls finally struggling back with (very little of) the crowd's help. Balls back up - kidney punches - and back in a suplex to break it up. "COME ONNNNNN!" Left, left, balls, balls, balls, balls, balls, whooooooooa balls! Balls! Tazz: "It's interactive, baby!" Half spinebuster/half Sky Hi - "What do you think of that, baby?" I think you're not getting over. Sorry. Keep trying, though! Cover - 1, 2, Credible gets a foot on the rope! Balls still on him with punches aplenty. Posey pulls him off and Balls protests. Coming back in - another look to Posey as the debate continues and Credible sneaks in a gutshot. ONE guy is chanting "BORING" but unfortunately he's closest to the crowd mic. Chop by Credible (wooooo!) - foot on the neck. Now building a head of steam - but Balls is out and Credible slides into a crotch on the post. His mouth is agape! "Justin Asshole" chant - sorta. Right by Balls, right, right, whip is reversed and reversed back - Balls stops short of landing on Posey, "OH MY GOD I'M SORRY" but Credible dropkicks him INTO Posey and down he goes. Credible with a reverse DDT. Now going outswide - With the ref out, Credible grabs a chair - BUT! kick by Balls before he can strike. Now BALLS has the chair - WHACK. Oops, Posey is up and saw that. See ya. (DQ 6:04) Mahoney is aghast as he suddenly figures out what decision was just announced. Posey and Balls exchange a few words - and if you think this ends with a chair to the ref, you're right - AND EXTREME! Styles says this may be too extreme even for ECW. Styles may have lost HIS balls. The sad thing is this would really have gotten over in show #1 or #2, but just match seemed more like a big nightmare in show #7. Not to mention, TWO disqualifications in one hour? I think we had two DQs in a YEAR in the *real* ECW. Hmm, I wonder what happened to that exposed turnbuckle...

Backstage: Show. Paul. "Paul - what's going on? Look at my head. Two days ago - Undertaker. In a match I shouldn't have been in! Okay? I'm still here. Tonight I'm fightin' Kane. What's the problem with this Sabu guy? Okay? Biggest, baddest, best there is WWE has to offer, RAW, Smackdown, ECW, I don't care, I'll take 'em all on, but you won't let me fight this Sabu guy? Why?" "I, I know you have faith in my judgment, please - I have my reasons. All I want you to focus on right now is successfully defending that title against Kane tonight." "....aight." UP COMES THE STRAP. Show feels his noggin one more time - and begins - WALKING

TALE OF THE TAPE:
KANE:
7'0", 320 lbs, Death Valley (the hell he is - Parts Unknown or nothing, baby), chokeslam, WWE Champion and Star of "See No Evil"
BIG SHOW: 7'0", 507 lbs, Tampa, FL, chokeslam, 1st man ever to hold WWE, WCW & ECW Championships

As we take a Special Video Look at Sunday's PPV cash grab, I DARE you to spend money on the Special Encore Presentation of the Great American Bash - no, wait, I DARE you to send the money to me instead...trust me, you'll get more out of it

THE WNBA IS RIGHT THERE - anyway, 99 cents and a text to that number on the screen and you might win $2500 - more likely, you'll lose 99 cents.

NEXT WEEK: KURT ANGLE! Unless some body part falls off between now and then - and even then, that might not stop him!

EXTREME RULES MATCH FOR THE ECW WORLD TITLE: WELL IT'S THE BIG SHOW (standing at 7' tall, weighing 507 pounds - he is the current ECW World Champion) v. KANE (the challenger, weighing 320 pounds) - Ring intros DURING the entrances tonight - I wonder how they'll do Kane's deal with this setup. We find out immediately: They decide on setting the corners ablaze without Kane's help. Show isn't fazed, unlike our commentary team. You don't have to turn on the red light..... Kane gets a RAW graph, although we haven't seen him *there* in quite a while EITHER. Anyway. Mickie J. gets double duty tonight and the night of a thousand disqualifications ends RIGHT HERE as he displays the ECW World Championship belt. HERE WE GO:
2.5

Kane with a grin. Lockup...to the ropes - and Kane shoves him away. Knowing nod. Knee by Show - Kane into the ropes, ducks the clothesline, lands a blow of his own. Off the ropes, clothesline, but Show is still standing. Show sidesteps the next one and puts him over the top to the floor. Fans, we'll be right....oh no, Show is out after him! Well it's a big forearm to the back. Well it's a big scoop...head to the post is thwarted and SHOW'S head hits the post instead. Did he cut himselef yet? Kane going under the ring and we watch him, so presumably Show is slicing here. Table out. SECOND table out. Kane is just sliding 'em out, though, not setting 'em up. Chair found - chair thrown in the ring. Make it two chairs. Back to look at Show - well, only the back of his head, so we can't tell. Garbage can in the ring. Kane back to Show with an uppercut. Right hand. Show ISN'T bleeding, amazingly enough. Another right hand. Whip - is reversed into a big short clothesline! A big short...mull that over as we go head on to that

AD BREAK: "Miami Vice" opening Friday - MAN I AM SO THERE I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING

THIS SUMMER: A legend returns to face the Legend Killer. Start putting together your pennies because SummerSlam is AUGUST 20!

AND WE'RE BAAAACK and you can bet probably not too much happened during that break. Both men are in the ring and Show is standing over Kane. Well it's a big right. This is Extreme Rules, people! Well it's a big right. Kane leans on the ropes. Well it's a big slap that makes much noise. The choke is on as we take a look at the ECW replay. Kane used the microphone cable and Show's eyes bugged out. Kane met the STEEL steps. Show took one from the garbage can lid. Well, this certainly explains how Show is in contr- oh, wait, Kane must have put a boot up after a whip into the corner, because know he's up top and he JUST hit his infamous leapin' clothesline (although, as usual, it appears that he landed before actually *connecting*). Kane sets up a chair between the ropes in the corner. Back to Show - right, right, right - moving Show towards the chair but Show reverses and it's KANE going into the corner, with HIS shoulder meeting the chair. Replay reveals I should have typed "head." Sorry. Show with the can - can to the back! IT'S TIME TO TAKE OUT THE Kane pulled into place and Show is climbing the corner (!) - up to the second rope - but Kane is up and there's the classic Greco-Roman nut shot. Kane is under Show - BACK SUPLEX (so long as you ignore it's mostly Show falling to the canvas)!!! Kane finally covers, after an eternity - and barely gets 1. Who will be up first? Show, with a right from his knees - but Kane answers. Show right, Kane right, Show, Kane, Show, MAN these are shitty punches. They're both up. Kane right, Show, Kane, Show, Kane, Show, Kane, blocks, Kane, Kane, Kane, Kane, Kane, Kane, Kane, Kane, uppercut! Kane removes his elbow pad Head of steam - clothesline to Show in the corner! He wants to go again - and it even works! I don't know if these are supposed to do more damage with the elbowpad off, but since Styles and Tazz didn't even notice it, let's just forget about it, I guess. Ooh, he's signaling for it - goooozle - nope, Show clamps on a choke of his own - Show wins the exchange! AHHHHTHECHOKESLAAAAAM! 1, 2, NO!!! Show is unhappy. Show outside and it looks like we're finally going to see the tables Kane left outside the ring earlier. Show sets up the table right outside the ring. Let's take an ECW Replay of the chokeslam - Kane BARELY kicked out before 3 that time. Meanwhile, the second table is placed alongside the first. Show now slowly making his way up the steps and back into the ring (stepping over the top rope, of course). WHACK with the garbage can one more time. Show looks at the tables. Now has Kane. Show steps back over the top rope, palming Kane's head - suplex out of the ring coming up? Of course not. Kane blocks - now dropping down and getting Show's throat on the ropes. Show teases falling backward onto the tables...but doesn't. *Kane* with the chair. WHACK! Show hanging onto the top rope with one hand. Kane takes the chair to the hand - then one more WHACK to the head allows Show to fall through the tables. Crowd chants "ECW," Kane cackles, and Shane Douglass cries a little inside. Now PAUL HEYMAN is out and joining Henson in checking on Show. ECW Replay of the destruction. One more angle as Kane comes outside. NOW Show is busted open. Kane trying very hard to lift the dead weight and roll him back into the ring. Show bleeds very much, very fast. Heyman mugs for the camera. Kane's going up top again - and here's a - no, Show caught him in a choke - but Kane counters the chokeslam attempt into a DDT! Show's legs are underneath the bottom rope but Henson counts anyway - 1, 2, Heyman pulled Henson out! As they argue, Kane goes for Heyman and drags him in...but before he can do anything with him, Show is back up and WHACKS him with the chair. "Get up you son of a bitch! COME ONNNN!"
3.0

WHACK! And for good measure, Show adds AHHHHHTHECHOKESLAAAAAMONACHAIR - 1, 2, 3. Champ retains. (15:24) Show's music is over before the official announcement, as Show has the chair again. But before he can do anything, SABU is in, on the corner, has a chair - and off the top with a dropkick to that chair, to SHOW'S chair. And presumably, Show ended up taking some of that as well. Sabu points to the sky and quickly heads to the back - play his music! Wait - he's stopping - HE POINTED TO THE ROOF AGAIN! I LOVE THAT! Show fumes. And bleeds. Heyman ... must not know he's on camera, because his look is blank. Hey how about a replay - Kane with the DDT - I STILL can't figure why Henson started a count with both of Show's legs almost out of the ring (well, I can - they WROTE it that way - but logically, speaking) ohhh welllll. Chokeslam on the chair - 3 - Sabu. Back live now and Show and Heyman trade camera time - one bleeds and both glower. Even though it's barely 10:02:30, the WWE copyright notice is up and we are OUT.

This show MAY have been better than I made it sound. Then again...maybe not.

Hopefully the Extreme Children that are shown every week are learning a valuable lesson from the Sabu push: If you are going to get pinched for possession, make sure you are the one in the passenger seat.

I believe Joey Styles once explained it as pointing up to Heaven in memory of his late uncle. But that might not be what it really is.

I smell a Chavo Guerrero / Sabu team up.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Sabu's famous signature gesture is pointing to the sky while looking upwards, especially when entering or exiting the ring, or before performing an especially dangerous move.

It was once explained that Sabu's trademark point to the lights comes from his gimmick of being a "savage"; he is amazed by the lights and is pointing at them.

CRZ:"Miami Vice" opening Friday - MAN I AM SO THERE I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING

Ha ha haha...who would JOKE about something like that! I dare YOU to send ME the money! No, I DOUBLE DARE you to GO and tell everyone how good it was! peeeyeewwww(*)

(*) - of course, that's opinion based on not, with no intention ever of , watching the movie. It may be good action type movie - it'd be even better if it was called "anything OTHER than Miami Vice"

Miami Vice Theme: Axed, but Alive

Click Here (foxnews.com)

Imagine "Mission: Impossible" or "The Addams Family" without their TV theme music transferred to the movies.

Even the disastrous big-screen version of "Bewitched" took its original theme music along, as did "The Wild Wild West," "The Brady Bunch" movies, "Star Trek" and countless other films that came from television series.

But not "Miami Vice." When the movie opens on Friday, there wont be a hint of Jan Hammers colossally successful, Grammy award-winning theme music.

The reason? Apparently director Michael Mann just didnt want it, simple as that.

Hammer, however, has the last laugh. His updated version of the theme, released on his own indie label with manager Elliott Sears, is already the most-added record on adult contemporary radio for the last three weeks

Hammers original hit record has many distinctions: it was the only TV theme instrumental to hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts when it debuted back in November 1985.

It went on to win two Grammy awards the following winter, for pop instrumental composition and performance.

Hammer, if you didn't know, was a member of the groundbreaking Mahavishnu Orchestra in the early 1970s, with John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, Neben McLaughlin, Jerry Goodman and Rick Laird.

But when it came time to record a score for the "Miami Vice" movie, Hammer was snubbed by Mann.

He wasnt the only one: Phil Collins, Glenn Frey and other musicians whose records made "Miami Vice" so memorable 20 years ago are also absent from the soundtrack.

Instead, Collins "In the Air Tonight" is heard as a remake by an unknown group. Two tracks are by Moby (one features Patti LaBelle), and the rest are all by unknowns.

None of this can be good for "Miami Vice," which was politely dismissed yesterday in the trade papers. The big screen incarnation of the famed TV show has already been considered a flop, even before its opening on Friday.

I told you exclusively in this column a few weeks ago that top Universal execs had already given up on this expensive mess.

The movie, directed by Mann, stars Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx as Crockett and Tubbs, originally played by Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas.

Otherwise, everything else about the movie is different, including the music. And thats whats causing the latest problems.

According to Sears, Mann didnt want any association with the TV series.

Universal execs are said to be upset about Manns decision to exclude the music. Sears told me that the studio was forwarded "thousands" of e-mails from "Miami Vice" fans begging the director to stick with the original.

"Universal told him, youve got to use the theme even if someone else records it," Sears said, "but he said no."

Hammer told me he knew Mann wasnt interested in him as a composer when the movie was announced and no one called him.

Still, he said, "I was completely surprised they didnt have a remake of it. I think its a matter of being too cool for school."

But Universal is in a unique situation with "Miami Vice." Since the series was made, the studio merged with NBC, the shows original network. Last Saturday, NBC at the behest of panicked Universal execs interrupted scheduled programming and rebroadcast Manns two-hour TV pilot from 1984.

Stars Foxx and Farrell hosted the show with Mann, which was followed by clip from the new movie.

"Whats happening is everyone realizes too late that theres no association between the movie and the show," Sears said. "Theyre trying at the last minute to make a connection."

Sears and Hammer are about to release another updated version of a popular track of theirs from the TV series, "Crocketts Theme," on Aug. 11.


...According to Sears, Mann didnt want any association with the TV series.

Then name the damn thing "Miami Nights" - with detectives White and Black. Dukes of Hazzard was a joke, but this is an insult to anyone who dug the show.

Enjoy the movie!

    This is one of my favorite wrestling poses of all time, but has anyone ever said what it is he is pointing at ... or is it one of those things that just shouldn't matter?


I seem to remember hearing somewhere, that it's his tribute to The Original Sheik who was responsible for training him and getting him into the business, but to actually tell you where I remember hearing this from, I cannot.

Ratings, via The Scher and PWInsider: 2.2 / 2.2 / 2.3 / 2.5 / 3.0 OVERALL: 2.4

Click back to post #1 in the thread to find out where the quarter breaks were (more or less)

That overrun of 3.0 was only for 2.5 minutes, though. I wonder how many people just happened to tune in at 10 to catch the rerun of "Eureka."

NO! WAIT! I mean, I hate ECW SO MUCH that I have to find EXCUSES for 2.5 minutes of ratings spike. Whew! Hope that saves somebody the trouble of posting!
