  • Fast Times is strictly spoon-gagging grotty-to-the-max, lacking the bite and outrageousness of the movie and coming across, in its tidied-up-for-television form, as nothing more than a peach-fuzz "Punky Brewster." [5 Mar 1986, p.C7] Show More

  • If you're not expecting the motion picture, Fast Times is rather pleasant. Not as wacky as "Square Pegs," the underappreciated 1982 CBS comedy that also focused on high school students and their teachers, it is no less appealing, boasting an attractive, engaging cast and a warm, gentle sense of humor. (And the high-energy, animated title sequence, featuring a theme song by Oingo Boingo, is dynamite.) [5 Mar 1986, p.C-10] Show More

  • Everybody, though, is well meaning and enormously attractive. Even Damone, banned from Disneyland, dressed like a rummage sale and generally recognized as the school sleaze, is basically likable. That is what makes the show moderately interesting. It might also be noted that there is no laugh track. That makes Fast Times almost courageous. Show More
