Stars: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jonathan Bailey, Julie Dray
Created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Crashing is a charming low-stakes sitcom that aired in the UK but is now available on Netflix. Not to be confused with the HBO comedy of the same name, the show follows a group of twenty-somethings living in London who become property guardians of a disused hospital, essentially keeping the building safe in exchange for cheap rent and a strict set of rules. The various romantic trials and tribulations of these adults inform the humor of the series, often trading in cringe humor as secrets are revealed and characters act out as a result of their less-than-desirable circumstances. Crashing is a good primer for Waller-Bridges’ acerbic sense of humor, which would later go on to define her current shows Fleabag and Killing Eve.
