    Crumbs' approach to the foibles of the family, though not for the tender-hearted, is raucously funny.

    An offbeat show that veers between wacky and truly poignant extremes.
  3. Feels like an indie feature idea crammed into a sitcom.

    Credit the veteran cast with making the series barely tolerable, but for the most part "Crumbs" is pretty crummy, the sitcom deconstructed to its most primordial form.
  5. 40
    To its credit, Crumbs tries to go deeper in depicting conflicted characters. That, unfortunately, doesn't make this series any funnier.

    In the end, the one-note antics grow wearisome.
  7. Not only do you get insufferable comedy, but phony drama, too.
