Crazy Credits

During the opening credits of episodes aired during the second season, a mock warning screen scrolls in fast motion. For the record, the warning is: "The copyright proprietor has licensed this film (including the soundtrack) comprised in this videocassette for home use only. So you've got the new smarty-pants remote control, the slo-mo, the freeze frame, the "see it all" gadget. Well what was it you were hoping to see, a lurid passage, a few rude words perhaps? Well just so the exercise hasn't been a complete waste of time for you, here we go. Sigh, gasp, wet, moist, mount, thrust, plunge, suck, spurt lips, lusting, dribbling, heavy, pouting, bulging, throbber, heaving crust, plunging, pulling ....... enough? Well now that you've written all this down, you can send it in to Fast Forward c/o the station you are now watching, and all entries judged to be correct will get to live with a cast member of their choice... forever. Enjoy the show sicko.

Best T.v Show Ever
21 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Fast Forward started with the first episode consisting of a send-up of the Midday show with Don Lane and Jana Wendt (Steve Vizard + Marg Downey respectivley) and the last episode consisting of a send up of The Sound Of Music. 75 episodes in all were made Fast Forward. Fast Forward however Certainly wasn't short of a classic Moment sending-up the likes of Are You Being Served, Bewitched,I Dream Of Jeannie,Get Smart + Lost In Space just to name a few. My particular favorite sketch is ''Spot The Queensland Police Deputy Assistant Commisioner of Police'' done during the tubulant Fitzgerald inqury In Queensland.

I Don't want to give to much away thats for your eyes only!
