    Gritty, jarring, profane and smartly produced.
  2. The show, the first original drama series made for Starz, is hardly the most original depiction of Los Angeles, but Crash has a noirish appeal, and ambitions to tell a big story.

    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.

    At once schematic and preachy, it never indicates the stakes--either for its “diverse” players or for you.
  5. The racial fire is oddly muted, the characters disturbingly undefined, the interaction frustratingly nondescript. The truth is, I'm not really sure what this show is supposed to be other than chaotic and boorish
  6. 30
    Crash tries too hard, and fails hard too.

    Messy at best, the two-episode premiere suffers from wildly uneven performances, beginning with Dennis Hopper at his manic worst.

    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!
