Fast Times the TV Series – My Brother The Car (1986)


In the fifth episode of the short-lived 1986 TV series, Brad gets his driver’s licence revoked just before his date with Linda. The series, if you had not seen it, was directly based on the film Fast Times At Ridgemont High. It starred Patrick Dempsey, Courtney Thorne Smith, Dean Cameron, and Claudia Wells in key roles. Returning from the movies was Ray Walston and Vincent Schiavelli reprising their roles as Mr Hand and Mr Vargas.

One thought on “Fast Times the TV Series – My Brother The Car (1986)

  1. Whenit first aired I didn’t give this show any attention, my opinion being it was a tame knockoff of the movie. Now, almost 30 years later, what a great piece of 80s culture as filtered through Network Television.
    With the opening sequence’s music- is that a heavy rock beat and a saxophone/horn section mixed in? Yep, it’s the 80s!
    And the animated title sequence- don’t brush it off , that’s actually some sophisticated combination of film and video effects for the day going on there!
    I think I’ll try to watch a few episodes of FAST TIMES- thanks for posting this!
