Critic Reviews for Crashing Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Few TV shows have captured the very specific ways that stand-up comedy can become a sort of proxy war among the comics who share a stage than HBO's Crashing.

Season 3 of Crashing is relentlessly entertaining and admirably ambitious, if not occasionally patronizing.

The comedy-drama Crashing...veers in a didactic direction this season, but does so with more finesse.

This is the kind of TV we should watch - but also listen to. Really listen.

    Great show!! CANT WAIT FOR A SEASON 4!! I almost dumped my HBO subscription but then got hooked on Crashing.

    The best season of crashing so far and by a substantial amount. While the show sticks to its guns by having Pete Holmes' innocuous fictionalized self interact with more established lightly-fictionalized comedians, the show really excels when it develops even further than this. In light of the #MeToo movement, Crashing comes off as progressive by acknowledging disgraced comedians (without name dropping), and even having a whole episode that addresses the stigma. MC, Middle, Headliner is quite possibly a series' best episode, that touches on both sexual harassment and un-PC comedy, and features a stark scene near the end that is easily the most intense that this otherwise gentle comedy has gotten. Pete Holmes' character is also more developed this season, finding more woes with romance, and struggling to have his comedy appeal to his Catholic background, and the scenarios are always insightful, and never preachy. With an evident amount of talent both behind and in front of the camera (Obvious Child director Gillian Robespierre helms six episodes this season), one can make an assessment that Crashing is finally living up to it potential...that assessment would be accurate!

    It's a pity they are not continuing it. It was one of the best shows. RIP

    I liked Pete's podcast, but his stand-up and show are completely bland. He depends on the goodwill of the audience to carry his comedy, imo, which is lackluster at best. Trying to be a dramedy, but its really just cringey. God, the rwcwnt episode with Amy Schumer sunk it to a new low. I gurss he found someone even less funny than him.

    I just watched the latest episode in Season 3 and it was awful. I don’t understand how people can possibly find this show funny. It just doesn’t do justice to true comedy. This last episode that aired on Sunday, 2/4, was really awful.
