Another short lived High School comedy
What is it about High School shows that get them cancelled quickly? Maybe the audience for them are too few. Look at a these:
SQUARE PEGS, FERRIS BUELLER, FAST TIMES, GEEKS AND FREEKS, and MY SO CALLED LIFE.
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.
