Crashtheseries

Worst show I've ever seen on TV. The hots are awful. I don't think they have ever been in front of camera or acted. Often dead silence like they don't know what to say because THEY ARE NOT FUNNY!!! at all. I get the Gronk may be famous in NFL but needs to stop with the hosting career. Even if no hosts were there at all, the clips are not funny!!! So you miss on both. If you like this show, you need to seek help. DO NOT WASTE a minute on this flop. If renewed, NICK has bombed.

Okay,But Cruel and rarely Funny

I don't watch this show much because it's dumb.And it's Obviously scripted and them acting to make it funny is horrible.I bet BTS there's alot of "This is boring." Or, "What a loser." And most of them aren't funny because we've seen them alot of times.The Intro is nice atleast.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (10 ):

It probably says something not-so-nice about human nature that video-fail shows such as this are both popular and (to most) very funny, but this sports-blooper half hour is pretty amusing anyway. As we all know from real life, people rarely make amazing shots or pull off fancy stunts -- generally, trying to do something crazy ends up with all your buddies laughing at you with egg on your face. So though you may wince as you watch a football get kicked into someone's face, or a soapbox-derby driver launched into the air, you'll probably also chuckle as well. And since the show refrains from showing truly terrible accidents -- those with blood and gore -- the occasional wince is as bad as it gets.

The show even spotlights some amazing athletic accomplishments with "Crashlete fails," stunts that happened to work out incredibly: A skier high-fives someone on a chairlift at the apex of a jump, a basketball player makes a basket from the far end of the court. This, plus the segments focusing on impressive animal athletes, turn a show that could be kinda mean into something just slightly mean instead. Crashletes is a good bet for whole-family watching, because most everyone, age 1 to 100, laughs when they watch other people fall down.
