Crashing is certainly different, we have to give it that.
Oh for the days of Channel four making comedy shows like Father Ted, The I.T. Crowd, Spaced etc. I had hoped for Crashing to meet the same enormously high standards. The premise of the show, a group of six friends are residing in a disused Hospital for different reasons, poverty, saving etc. Naturally they have alcohol fuelled parties, lots of sex. The humour is quite crass, and definitely for adults only, but then it is Channel 4. It will be interesting to see how some of these characters unfold. Estate agent Sam seemed to get the most screen time, not surprising as Jonathan Bailey is a good looking lad.
I for one really enjoyed, and look forward to the series progressing. I thought the acting was good, Phoebe Waller- Bridge, Louise Ford and Jonathan Bailey were all good. Adrian Scarborough is always good value too, an underrated comedy actor. So it wasn't continuously crammed with laughs, I still really enjoyed it. 8/10
