Poor execution, sloppy construction, one of the worst shows ever watched
While the premise of the show seems like a promising concept, the execution is pretty pitiful. The entire concept of the show is for the three hosts to watch some of the most famously epic fails presented on the internet and to comment based on what they see. However, the execution leaves a near infinite amount to be desired, from both script construction and depth of characters.
Rob Gronkowski serves as the main host of the show; however, he spends so much time inflating his ego about his (deteriorating) pro sports career that it's almost mentally impossible for him to go five minutes without referencing it in some way. Stevie Nelson and Brandon Broady also play a part as the secondary hosts; their backstories I am not too familiar with. If I'm not wrong, I don't remember seeing them ANYWHERE other than here. Their acting skills strongly support this claim as listening to them is a literal cringe fest.
God bless those who watch this show. I am a personal fan of AFV and love to watch it wherever and whenever. AFV and Crashletes share the theme of watching funny videos, and I will give credit to Crashletes for picking decent ones. However, unlike AFV, the hosts on Crashletes spend far too much time talking out their butts, using painfully forced jokes and cliché reaction quips to a level that nearly makes my ears bleed. Gronkowski needs to stick to his athleticism; Broady and Nelson need to look for a new line of work. At least Gronk has something to fall back on.
For those that believe I am being over dramatic, my younger sister can vouch for this claim. After watching any other show and then seeing the opening title of Crashletes, it literally becomes a foot race for the remote to change the channel before we start hemorrhaging brain cells. The first (and only) time I sat through an entire episode, I was in utter shock at how such a show could be published. Throughout the episode I constantly shook my head while simultaneously asked myself "what even is this" because I wondered just how much money the producers were flushing down the toilet to continue constructing this trash.
I would never recommend this show to someone, and I fail to see how anyone could enjoy it. The show lacks taste and it is basically downplaying its significant similarities to AFV by presenting itself in the literal form of cancer. I'd say giving it a 3 out of 10 just for effort would be decent, but one more one-dimensional one-liner with no depth will condemn it to the dreadful two stars. And this includes puns, Gronkowski.
