Crims follows straight-laced Luke, played by stand-up comedian Elis James, and Jason played by Kadiff Kirwan, who both make their TV acting debut. Luke inadvertently finds himself sentenced to two years in Young Offender Institution Sunnybank View after becoming a bank robber's getaway driver, along with the bank robber in question, his girlfriend's brother and so-called friend - Jason. To make matters worse he has to share a cell with Jason. Luke will have to rely on Jason's street smarts to get him through. Unfortunately, Jason is a massive idiot.

Fresh ready brek to old-school Porridge
18 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm a connoisseur of British Comedy and whilst 'Crims' isn't a big- league puncher it's fresh, snappy writing and high gag-count keep it rolling on and enjoyable. Kadiff (as Jason) gets all the gags and is the nice-but-dim foil to Elis' 'wrong place wrong time' bemused Luke and the support cast is solid. The show creates it's own comedy language - frequently self-referential - to good effect (in trying not to reveal a planned escape route, Luke corrects himself from 'garden' to 'farden' - thinking this is an actual word, as a snappy riposte, Jason later uses the phrase 'I beg your farden?'). This is very much 'you had to be there comedy but I think that's the best kind. The show relies un-self- consciously on standard tropes but makes the intelligent but subtle nuances count. In other ways, blunt word play makes for simple but effective laughs (In his benign ignorance, Jason proclaims 'I'm not an igno-rapist!').

Definite potential to improve but enjoyable as it is.
