Witty banter makes light of too-dangerous driving stunts.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

The series doesn't have much to offer outside of the extreme-driving events, which combine the speed of racing with the explosiveness of a demolition derby. Loud crashing noises and screams from the competitors (usually when they're helplessly veering into poles and/or camera crews) add to the chaos/entertainment. Viewers may not be able to suppress a chuckle at Jones and Cortese's humorous banter, either, as they offer their candid opinions about each team's idiosyncrasies.

Crash Course definitely isn't for everyone, but if you like obstacle course-oriented game shows and/or find cars flying through the air (and landing in a variety of positions) exciting, this series won't disappoint. Still, be sure to remind car-loving viewers of all ages that no matter how much fun it looks like on television, these stunts are extremely dangerous and should never be attempted at home.
