Re-run Theater: Crime Story and Wiseguy
How the hell does Re-run Theater follow up yet another successfully wine-cooler-drunk and pastel-as-hell ViceFest celebration? By changing the channel to something way grimier: back-to-back episodes of Wiseguy and Crime Story. Once Miami Vice proved cop shows were a great vehicle for lending the boob tube a little cinematic credibility, networks were like, “We need more of that shit!” Miami Vice producer Michael Mann was happy to oblige via his ’60s-set serial drama Crime Story, starring Dennis Farina as a cop named... fuck, I forget what his name was, but he was basically just Dennis Farina, which is enough. Simultaneously, a mafia show called Wiseguy hit screens, which was supposed to be centered on well-coiffed slab of balsa Ken Wahl, but quickly became Kevin Spacey’s big break, as he instantly stole the whole series as a malevolently creepy deviant (ahem). One could make the case you don’t get to NYPD Blue or The Sopranos without either of these shows—don’t expect that level of quality. But for a pair of ’80s-era cash-ins, there’s a lot to like.
