Another short lived High School comedy, 28 May 2004
Author: ( from st. pete, fl usa

What is it about High School shows that get them cancelled quickly? Maybe the audience for them are too few. Look at a these:


There are exceptions of course, like FAME and BOSTON PUBLIC. This show was created and directed by Amy Heckering who directed the original "FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH". The actors featured future stars like Courtney Thorn Smith(ALLY McBEAL), Wallace Langham(VERONICA'S CLOSET), and Patrick Dempsey(CAN'T BUY ME LOVE, SWEET HOME ALABAMA). FAST TIMES also had Miss Valley Girl herself, Moon Unit Zappa(who was on her father's Frank Zappa's "Valley Girl" song). My favorite was James Nardini(Brad) who didn't do much after this show :[ The writing was good but not as good as SQUARE PEGS. It was a funny show and I shall enjoy watching my 5 episodes on Video until it breaks.
