| || || |
The four-disc set of Crash's debut season presents all 13 episodes in widescreen, and offers an agreeable selection of supplemental features to accompany them. Chief among them is a 20-minute featurette on the show's conception and production, featuring interviews with Haggis, series creator Glen Mazzaro, Hopper, and many others. There's also a three-minute alternate ending for the final episode of the season (somewhat more satisfying than the televised version), and a brief discussion with the cast on their respective characters. A raucous promo with Hopper for season 2 and promos for several unrelated movies round out the extras; DVD-ROM content includes cast bios and episodes of other Starz Channel series. --Paul Gaita

Amazon does an excellent job by way of an overview of the show. Like the movie of the same name, Crash offers multiple story lines that at some point intersect (the style made popular by Pulp Fiction)
My personal favorite story line, of course, involves Ms. Atias, as the much younger wife of a Gypsy leader (yes there are gypsies in the USA) and the cop played by Ross McCall. One of my favorite lines was when Ross McCall was asked how he could get involved with a married gypsy woman and he replied "I thought she was a Latina!"
Kudos to the writers that produced a script that allowed Moran Atias to be both controversial and in a near perpetual state of undress. If she is not on your "bucket list", she should be!
Now, the sad part, As you can see, you can purchase the first season here on Amazon. The series only lasted 3 seasons due to Dennis Hopper's death, but the 2nd season ends with a great finale so you are not left hanging. The problem is owning the 2nd season. It seems Amazon owns the series and you can only buy the 2nd season through Amazon at a very expensive price and they mass record them on DVD-R discs!
I guess that's legal if they own it! DVD-R discs are inferior and do not last like prerecorded DVD's. Especially when they are high speed dubbed. I wish a company would buy this series and release them proper! They deserve a HD presentation on Blu Ray. I noticed that the first season has gotten the BR treatment but only in Australia! This is a shame because this is a big thing for Dennis Hopper fans like myself! I would love both seasons carefully given a HD Upgrade (they are only 7 years old) and both seasons priced reasonably for fans of the show.Read more ›
There are several storylines that are extremely entertaining:
(1) the has-been rock and roll producer who wants to find one final "star act" before his career (and life) goes down in flames;
(2) the woman who suspects that her estranged father was always right about her husband's career prospects;
(3) another woman who suspects that her lover may be a mob enforcer/ contract killer;
(4) an illegal alien who is attempting to make it in America -- crossing the border with only the bloody shirt on his back.
However, I thought that each of these stories would have been better told as four distinctive full length movies than as they are presented here as a (very loosely) interwoven story.
The acting in the series is strong as is the writing in the majority of the episodes. But, in the 2nd Season, I would like a rationale as to why I should view this series as one complete narrative as opposed to a collection of fascinating short stories.
