Critic Reviews

  1. Every year, there's at least one sitcom that takes an extremely talented cast, and wastes all that talent in an extremely disappointing series.
  2. 30
    These actors deserve better material.
  3. 10
    A relentlessly unfunny mid-season replacement comedy from ABC that sucks all the fun out of dysfunction, the show could have been pitched to network execs as "Arrested Development meets Ordinary People." But it shows none of the former's wit or latter's intelligence.

    It just doesn't work. [30 Jan 2006, p.38]

    You have no idea how much restraint I'm using not to call it "Crummy." Oops. Lost the restraint.
  6. We watched a second episode of "Crumbs" just to make sure there wasn't something hilarious for you under a rock, some morsel of humor left over. Um, no.
  7. 30
    In the end, the one-note antics grow wearisome.
  8. 10
    It mistakes boorishness for zaniness.
  9. Not only do you get insufferable comedy, but phony drama, too.

    Excellent show - the promos made it look corny so I was surprised I liked it so much. Something tells me it is too smart for network TV however.
