Engrossing
Review by Teacher M. on 07/17/20 review stating Engrossing
I had the opportunity to watch both installments of Collision and couldnt tear myself away. It deftly wove together the human stories of its victims with the mystery of the collision. This is storytelling at its best.

I was amazed at how involved I became, this is one of the best shows I have ever watched. It had me thinking about it days later and talking about it still.

Tonight I watched the first installment of COLLISION. I could not leave my chair. Not since THE WIRE have I been so enthralled by a television series. Intersecting lives, threads beginning to slowly untangle will captivate you, and best of all the cast is simply amazing.

Superb plot, intertwined and engaging...but, was very disappointed there were NO CLOSED CAPTIONS as advertised. Would advise not to purchase if you are hearing impaired.

Meh
Review by Lawl on 07/17/20 review stating Meh
It was just ok. To be honest, I bought this to watch a particular actor, and he was in it a lot less than Ive seen. I think this program was edited for American audiences, which was somewhat disappointing. Seemed to drag on forever at one point.

It was remade but this version is better
Review by Kim on 07/17/20 review stating It was remade but this version is better
It is the story that the American movie Crash was based on. I prefer this version of the story to that one. It is much more mysterious and does not treat the viewer as dumb as the big budget movie does.

Collision - abridged from original
Review by Love P. on 07/17/20 review stating Collision - abridged from original
The original 5 hr mini-series was excellent. Was very disappointed that it was shortened to 3.5 hrs for the DVD. Still OK, but the ending (cause of the accident) referred back to something that happened in the beginning of the mini-series, that had been cut out of the DVD version.

ALL IS NOT AS IT APPEARS
Review by Nonno on 07/17/20 review stating ALL IS NOT AS IT APPEARS
Heres an incident that, on face value, is nothing more than a chain reaction auto calamity. But as the investigation proceeds we begin to see that there are multiple stories converging on this British highway,and they are not all pleasant. What has happened is a mystery, but the mist is slowly cleared by the investigative couple with a mystery of their own. Its a great story within a story within a story.......

Consequences!
Review by Fanzee on 07/17/20 review stating Consequences!
How interesting! One incident leads to so many different lives with so many loose ends tied up, then left for the professionals to deal with and be credited for. Makes you stop and think about everyday news stories and their possible back stories.

masterpiece Contemporary:Collision
Review by Lord C. on 07/17/20 review stating masterpiece Contemporary:Collision
You Brits are the best. Ther has to be a sequel to this. This was 200 + hours of pure pleasure

"PBS' Masterpiece is best known for its literary period pieces, but I find myself drawn just as deeply to it's modern Contemporary stories. The two part Collision is a terrific example of an unconventional and original story, weaving suspense, irony, mystery and emotional turmoil." - TV Guide
