Review: Crashing, Channel 4

New flatshare comedy drama is a slow burn.

Veronica Lee, The Arts Desk, 19th January 2016

Crashing review: frank, filthy, sad and weird

This modern sitcom follows young property guardians in a disused hospital, using tonal flips to great effect.

Richard Vine, The Guardian, 19th January 2016

Episode two of the sitcom following a group of property guardians. Free-spirited Lulu (played by the show's creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge) continues to drive a wedge between Anthony and his fiancee. Not content with moving into the old hospital alongside them, she's soon working with Kate, and failing to get the hang of just about everything. Elsewhere, Melody homes in on Crying Colin. Despite a peculiar premise, this latest addition to the millennials-behaving-badly genre is yet to hit any kind of stride.
