Not great, not terrible

I don't really know why I watched all of this. It's not great, but it isn't the worst show ever, either. There are some laughs to be had, but not as many as some other, similar shows. It's a short watch, however, so you won't feel like you wasted any valuable time if you don't like it. As far as inappropriate content goes, there isn't really anything other than profanity and sex talk, so it's less explicit than a lot of other British sitcoms.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

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

This well-written series contains all the wit and edgy humor that Phoebe Waller-Bridge's work is known for. Driving the show is the colorful and flawed cast of characters, each member of which is trying to thrive in living arrangements that are one step up from squatting. The result is a quirky combination of over-the-top situations and funny moments.

The show's romance-themed narratives aren't particularly original. But Crashing is smart and sharp, and its focus on property guardianship, which is a growing trend in many urban areas, gives it some freshness. Granted, it's not for everyone, but if you appreciate good biting English humor set against a contemporary backdrop, it's worth tuning in to.
