    I’ll come back to Crash the TV show, but for now, the acting doesn’t exactly induce gaper’s block.

    Crash doesn't burn so much as it simmers. It's provocative and intriguing, but leaves you wondering if the whole setup might not simply work better as a movie.
  3. 50
    Not surprisingly, Crash, the TV series, does not measure up very well against the film in terms of atmosphere and acting.
  4. 50
    The show clearly wants to say something complicated about race and class in Los Angeles, but a number of the situations and characters on the show feel like situations and people we’ve seen before (starting with the movie that lends the series its name).
  5. It's an hour of unpleasant yet bland people occasionally bumping into each other and saying racially provocative things.
  6. They're a largely unlikable lot of crooked cops, adulterers and Hopper's long-winded, nutso music mogul. It's one thing to spend a movie with these characters, but it's quite another to tune in for 13 weeks.
  7. 40
    At once schematic and preachy, it never indicates the stakes--either for its “diverse” players or for you.
  8. Although slickly made with a nod to noir between sermonettes, Crash features far too much Dennis Hopper as a drug-addled music producer.

    I really loved the first season, was absolutely great, but maybe thats just me! Season two though... very disappointing. Got rid of many, ifI really loved the first season, was absolutely great, but maybe thats just me! Season two though... very disappointing. Got rid of many, if not most, of the original characters. Past stories or plots of characters are gone and new characters are introduced much too fast without description or reason. If you thought season one was bad, season two is DEFINITELY not for you.
    Back to the point, this is a review of season one, and I give it 8!
