Quality and light hearted fun...
19 August 2002 | by Lexie_663See all my reviews

Compared to some of the plotless garbage made for children's televion today, Crash Zone has to be one of the best TV shows around - I'm almost 15 and I couldn't think of what I'd rather be watching on TV.

Each of the characters - and actors - compliment each other and the story lines can stand alone or run together.

Quality in a children's TV Show hasn't really been seen since the days of the first series of 'Lift Off' with Poss.

If it came down to it, there is practically nothing else I'd rather do than watch the adventures of something as light hearted as six kids and an AI overcome challenges. Kids and computers - it hasnt been done before.

Crash Zone is one of the best TV shows to come out of Melbourne in a long time.
