One of 2006's Best Sitcoms...
12 September 2006 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Crumbs' simply was one of the best sitcoms in the past few years surpassing "critical" favorites like 'My Name is Earl', 'Will and Grace' and 'The Office'. But, thanks to ABC's shoddy treatment of the series, it never got to find its audience and was evicted, which is very disappointing because this is a high caliber, strongly written, funny and sensitive sitcom with a great cast.

Everything pretty much works here from the zany opening credits to the great set design, editing and music score, it all fits in perfectly. It is a traditional sitcom but it finds ways of being fresh and inventive and its use of outdoor shots and other devices makes it stand apart from the rest.

The cast are terrific. Jane Curtin has simply never been so funny and in a year where has-beens like Debra Messing got Emmy nominations for Best Actress, Curtin should have been a lock - her performance shows a side to her that one didn't see she had on 'Third Rock from the Sun', let's just say she's as out of it as John Lithgow was on that show. Fred Savage is always welcomed and he has a great part here that on first glances looked like he wouldn't be able to do, but he shines with an excellent, controlled and sensitive performance. Together, Curtin and Savage have two of the best roles in television last season.

The rest of the cast are good too - Eddie McClintock and William Devane are solid; Maggie Lawson got more to do as the season progressed but Reginald Ballard as a barman is unnecessary and if the show were to have continued, his exit would have been inevitable. Among the guest appearances throughout the season included: Elliott Gould, Illena Douglas, Rider Strong, Teri Garr, Rider Strong and Kevin Rahm.

It's disappointing that ABC didn't see its potential but again, this is a network that is only centering on three programs as their concern, but this really could have been something special and its 12-episodes were all fantastic and a true gift, hopefully one day it will get a DVD release. Like so many short-lived shows ('Action', 'Undeclared', 'Freaks and Geeks' etc), this is another that perhaps was just too good for real tastes. The only quibble is that the 12th episode left so many unanswered questions that one can be disappointed that there will never be a resolution.

An excellent series A+
