      2018 Comedy List
      80% 5 Reviews Tomatometer 95% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Sheltered suburbanite Pete dreams of a big-city career in comedy, but his wife, Jessica, has other ideas. Childhood sweethearts no more after he finds her in an uncompromising position with another man, Pete is suddenly homeless and frantically re-evaluating his priorities.

      Previous John Doyle Globe and Mail It stands as an example of a series that the premium cable environment allows to breathe and grow and develop. Jan 12, 2018 Full Review Ben Travers indieWire For anyone already hooked on Crashing, Season 2 should keep them coming back, and new or unfamiliar viewers will find their patience through Season 1 adequately rewarded. B- Jan 10, 2018 Full Review Seth Simons Paste Magazine The story of how one man missed enough social cues that every famous comic he met took pity on him, and also a woman to whom he was objectively terrible slept with him because he did her two favors. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Roger Catlin rogercatlin.com ... Pete Holmes has successfully created a likable standup comic (which is tough enough to create) whose struggle is something we root for. Jan 16, 2018 Full Review Josh Sorokach Decider Crashing works because there's just something so inherently cozy about watching a person trying to piece together the A through L so they can eventually get to Z.

      Previous Audience Member Improved plot, actual progression and more impactful character stories. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked season 2 of crashing! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member May have enjoyed this season more than the 1st...so close to a 4.5* Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This show gets funnier as Pete grows as a character. This situations get more intense and much more funny than the first season. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A much stronger second year for Crashing, that finds it voices through augmenting the first season's strengths, and making Pete a more interesting character. The writers do a good job of exploring Pete's ideology, and also making solid humor and character development off of his Christian faith. The show is a real joy to watch when we see the character gaining more confidence and talent in his field, and newcomer Jamie Lee turns out to be a great addition for the show. The young actress displays a welcome degree of charm and spunk that makes her stand out even amongst the big names in the cast, and her chemistry with Pete is surprisingly sexy and palpable. What started off as a decent and fairly esoteric project has evolved considerably, and here's hoping it grows even more next season.
