I actually really liked the first few episodes of Fastlane until I realised that… it was the same episode over and over again. I eventually rage quit when there was this really gross scene where it was just girls dancing in slow motion and I was like, ‘HOW MANY TIMES?!’.
Every episode there was a club or beach house scene with girls, girls and more girls. Most of the time our white, male lead falls for one of them and we get an awkward, sultry, slow motion love scene. Cringe.
Fastlane would work as a movie, maybe. Watching the same thing happen (in slow motion) for twenty two episodes is not good TV.
That being said, I don’t think I was the target audience for the show anyway.
I’m on the third season now. I like the show, but I think the reason why it’s not as good as Justice League is the ensemble cast. There are so many characters now that it’s hard to really get lost in it. I did like the Cadmus Labs arc in the second season, though.
Above all, there is not enough Superman. There’s not enough Batman. They should make a Batman/Superman show!
