CRASH “You Set the Scene” Early Review (Season 2 Premiere)


Season 2 of CRASH returns to Starz on September 18th and will air at 10 pm ET/PT on Fridays. For those that aren’t in the know, Crash is a television drama that takes place in Los Angeles. If it sounds familiar it’s because it’s based on the 2004 movie of the same name.

Since I have to be in the right mood to stomach both drama series and the city of Los Angeles, I was a little skeptical about checking out the advanced copy I received of the first episode. However, I was surprised by how much I liked the show. Good acting, some seriously flawed characters, plenty of drama. What more could you want?

So what can I reveal about the first episode of Season 2? One of the main characters ends up in the hospital, another gets badly beaten up, and somebody thinks they’ve been visited by God. I know that sounds cryptic, but I don’t want to give anything too specific away. Some specifics I can share is that Ben (Dennis Hopper) tries to have a new beginning while at the same time find the person that murdered his daughter. Kenny comes to regret some of his past actions, while Anthony must decide if he wants to help Ben on a dangerous quest.

Two characters that I don’t personally care for are Inez and her new boyfriend, Jimmy – both seem like a pair of idiots to me (although I think Inez may have some potential to prove me wrong). My favorite character so far is Anthony who seems like the only normal and decent character in the whole series.

So, if you like dramas, or just good television, check out Crash on Friday, September 18 at 10pm on Starz. And if you are already a fan of the show, you have plenty to look forward to in Season 2!
