1986: 'Fast Times' Gets Pulled After Seven Episodes
April 23, 2012  | By Christy Slewinski  | 1 comment
 
This day in 1986 marked the last broadcast of CBS' Fast Times, a short-lived sitcom inspired by the 1982 coming-of-age film, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Ray Walston and Vincent Schiavelli reprised their film roles, but the film's other memorable characters were portrayed by new young actors, including Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey and Courtney Thorne-Smith, most recently of Two and a Half Men. Cameron Crowe - who wrote the book on which the film was based, as well as the film's screenplay - served as the show's creative consultant; Danny Elfman wrote the theme song, which was performed by his band, Oingo Boingo.
