Review: The FastLane (FOX)
starring: a fly white guy and token black and a former teen queen
Category: Miami Vice knock off
PETER FACINELLI as "Van Ray"
BILL BELLAMY as "Deaqon Hayes"
TIFFANI THIESSEN as "Billie Chambers"
With the stellar lineup of stars that reads like a Starbuck's staff sheet, I was roped into watching this show after seeing that Tiffani-Amber Theissen (pardon she dropped the "Amber" I guess to make her seem more "respectable" as an actor) would be playing the role of Lt. Billie Chambers. How could I resist such a laughable premise? She plays a "tough as nails" lieutenant who doesn't mince words. The boys are a hodge-podge of every black and white cop team that has been on the screen. I thought this show sucked....but it sucked in the way you look at someone with a
cleft palate, with fascination. I was left wondering how this show was picked up for another season, after careful thought I decided it was probably because of the episode where Lt. Billie goes undercover as a lipstick lesbian and makes out with Jaime Presely. Guys love chicks who make-out.
bottom line: on a scale of 1 to 5 tiaras I give it a 1 1/2
