Season 1

a708_2Saucy, surprising, audacious, personal, tantalising.  Billie Piper’s execution of the role far exceeded my expectations.

Come on Apple, get with the program!

rolling-stone-stephen-colbert-the-daily-show-38768_344_344The Colbert Report is brilliant show, but why do Apple/iTunes censore it!? They don’t censor their movies .. they don’t censor any other of their TV Shows.

B#tch and moan about it – tell Apple using their Request a TV Show page.

Can you explain the logic please – Apple? anyone?

Based on Paul Haggis’ movie of the same name, this show stars Dennis Hopping leading a troop of fresh faces.  This show had big shoes to fill, with Haggis’ original movie scoring an academy award long after I was impressed by it as a surprise DVD rental (who knew it would reach DVD before a punt at the Oscar).

Do yourself a favour and don’t attempt to compare it with the movie – it really only shares a loose relationship in the form location, complexity of the the characters and the style of plot.  If not for the identical “Crash” logo, it might as well be titled something else.  Still, where it is similar is the script and screenplay, often ducking and weaving ensuring that you work til the very end of each episode.

There’s some talk that Haggis pulled out as Producer after the first two episodes.  Having seen only the first two episodes, I can only hope his influence persists for the whole season.

Update: Episodes 4-9 seem to wane somewhat, perhaps related to the firey relationship with Inez taking a desperate turn.  However Epsidoes 10-12 are back ‘on song’ though curiously they seem to have dropped the blur-o-vision that was so heavily employed in the first few epsidoes – as much as I disliked its overuse, I kinda miss it 🙂  (ironically, it added a texture to it).
