Crumbs: Season 1 Reviews

Sep 30, 2019
Comedy pilots are notoriously unreliable... So it's worth noting that a second episode of "Crumbs" seemed less jokey and, yes, less crummy.
Sep 30, 2019
Sadly, the result is a fine cast underemployed.
Sep 30, 2019
"Crumbs..." is bright, funny, touching, dramatic and heartfelt, sometimes in the same moment.
Sep 30, 2019
Watching Crumbs is like watching a poorly trained nurse trying to find a vein: less amusing than it is nerve-wracking.
Sep 30, 2019
Crazy is as crazy does, but you'd have to have a serious screw loose to enjoy Crumbs.
Sep 30, 2019
[I]f it's not funny, why give "Crumbs" any attention at all? Because it's an unusual experiment... it also exhibits more gravitas than any sitcom in television history.
Sep 30, 2019
In the case of Crumbs, however, the show goes for dark and edgy, but mostly manages just silly and insensitive.
Sep 30, 2019
[Fred] Savage is the least of the problems in "Crumbs." He's got timing and he can act, but the script about his "crazy" family is cliche-ridden, predictable and unfunny.
Sep 30, 2019
Crumbs has multiple problems to match its multiple personalities, but the biggest mistake made by this sitcom... is that it vastly overestimates the comic value of excess.

Sep 30, 2019
On the one hand, you have to applaud ABC's "Crumbs" for daring to be different. It's not the standard yuk-yuk-yuck sitcom.
Sep 30, 2019
"Crumbs" is a little all-over-the-place, yanking you in different directions.
Sep 30, 2019
Credit the veteran cast with making the series barely tolerable, but for the most part "Crumbs" is pretty crummy, the sitcom deconstructed to its most primordial form.
Sep 30, 2019
Regardless of how they feel about the edgy premise, viewers will agree that there are elements of the show that simply don't work -- the awkward laugh track comes to mind.

If a show isn't working, not even the Super Bowl as a lead-in is going to help.

Fred Savage's new sitcom is airing directly opposite NBC's divine The Office, which is a shame, because Crumbs has promise... [It's] fizzier than its laugh track suggests.
