CRASH: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (DVD)
What’s not to like about a show that has Dennis Hopper ranting and raving like a madman?
Based on the hit film, Crash is a Starz TV series that tackles the issue of race relations in Los Angeles. The show hits on a real touchy subject and doesn’t back down from displaying the real ugly side of the characters’ lives. Family tensions, corrupt cops, sex, drugs and drama galore are shown here in this hard hitting show. Watching the hell that some of the characters go through is enough to show you how not to live. And I must say, the acting is very convincing, especially Dennis Hopper’s crazy old-man record producer character. Anchor Bay Entertainment has put out the complete first season on DVD and I was satisfied checking out the set. The quality of the transfer from TV onto DVD is impressive and it includes all episodes from this show’s first season. However, I’m curious to see how far they can take this show when there’s so much competition on the other cable networks. Time will tell.
