It's these tonal flips between frank and filthy, sad and weird that give Crashing enough of an edge to make it feel fresh.
All in all, I like it -- and it's beyond brilliant to see a girl owning this kind of territory.
Crashing is a more immediately goofy show as it follows a group of twentysomethings living in a decommissioned hospital, but it showcases a heartfelt vulnerability as the characters fitfully learn to grow into themselves.
Such a shame it only had one series, but so good that we got that at all. I have such fondness for this show, and I really do urge you to give it a go.
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.
Watch Crashing if you're feeling lonely but don't feel like leaving your house. And then make your friends come over and rewatch it all with you.
[Crashing] isn't perfect -- you can tell she learnt a lot from it for Fleabag -- but it's a joy seeing Waller-Bridge's take on a wider cast of characters, each of whom are able to communicate various observations about relationships and modern life.
While the series might remind viewers of the beloved TV show Friends and also shares similarities to Fresh Meat, Crashing has its own unique humor that leaves you craving for more.
Given that this is a comedy-drama, is any of it actually funny? Hardly a bit of it. Louise Ford does her utmost at saving the day... but the rest buckle under the strain of an almighty tombstone of a script.
That's a brilliant premise. So it's bizarre that writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge almost completely ignores the setting and concentrates on the foul-mouthed, one-dimensional characters, who haven't a fraction of the comic potential.
Centered around a group of people who avoid London's ridiculous rental prices by being property guardians, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's first sitcom is a funny, smart series about an incredibly modern way of living.
Audience Reviews for Crashing: Series 1
Jan 15, 2021RATING: B Creator: Phoebe Waller-Bridge Crashing is a funny watch and easily bingeable in one sitting. The show is very well written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge ( although I'm starting to think that she can't write a bad Screenplay ) and she delivers the best performance as well. The rest of the cast's performances are rather solid. The are some really hilarious scenes, maybe because of it's unusual setting ( although I gotta say in an old hospital there's probably room for more jokes ). But I definitely enjoyed the watch.
Oct 02, 2020Wish I got her appeal, her writing is so ham fisted. No subtle nuance goes without a wink. It's almost as if she thinks she's the only one that is so outspoken, so daring for saying something, wink wink, aren't I cute. Like the little girl who shocks her Nan, by exposing her knickers at church, who does that? My cute granddaughter always a shocker. Oh well, just hope she doesn't ruin 007. Maybe he wink, look at the camera when he does his double entendres. So silly, who would do that? I think I know, PWB, so cutting.

Apr 13, 2020It is a tale of long lost love set in a world that devalues adult accountability. Every character is wonderfully dynamic and holds a good deal of agency for a comedy. Phoebe steals every seen, but it really operates as a ensemble.
Sep 01, 2018Phoebe Waller-Bridge is so talented. Funny as hell.
