    I just stumbled into this thread, and having not watched the show yet, I'm left with this question: in a nutshell, what exactly is this? A sitcom geared toward kids? I just haven't quite grasped was is trying to be done here as of now...

    Here's the plot:
    The main kid Wyatt Bernstein, has three sisters. For his brithday his sisters bring him to the Build a Bestie store..which is kinda like Buld a Bear, Wyatt, tired of having sisters wishes he had a brother. Later, the "bestie" that he builds comes to life, and his name is Crash.
    The show takes off from there, the humor is funny, but has a lot of fart jokes in it, which takes away all the funniness in it. Crash is almost Muppety, probably becuase a Muppeteer works him...(I can't remember the namethis is so emabarrasing) there is some good humor in it, just lose all the fart jokes, the stupid dude vs. girl jokes, and you got a pretty decent show.

    Sounds at least better than much of the stuff Disney Channel shows anymore...I might have to check it out...

    Yes. You should check it out. Let us know your thoughts when you're done watching.

    BTW, the Muppeteer who performs Crash is Tim Lagasse

    Like I said, Crash and Bernstein is the best show on Disney XD.

    Though it doesn't take much to garner that ranking... :p

    But to be serious, you guys are really making me want to check this thing out, I watched the last three minutes of an episode or so as it was on at 8:30, but that wasn't much to give me any impression of anything...

    Of Crash and Bern?
    I'm not saying you'll like it..I didn't really like it myself, but I don't know about you, I only like it becuase of Crash, that's the only reason I would ever watch another episode of the show. He's just almost Muppety...

    I like it more the more episodes I watch...I loved the one where he treated going to school like it was Prison..... They just have to make sure to keep the focus on Crash...when the sisters are focused on it gets a little annoying...crash is pretty funny though.

    I only watch the pranks he does. Disney XD has too many commercials for me. But yes, crash is very funny!

    I do hope Tron comes back for a second season, at this point, I don't know if that's going to happen. :(
    I hope Disney pulls in a gives Tron Uprising a second season to go with it.

    I have to admit! I love that show! I love the Episode where he had a fear of Moustaches!

    I guess is okay. My signature tells the truth about how the show came to be. I know that Tim Lagasse is a muppet performer, but I think of him on Oobi when he comes to mind. If I change my signature by any chance, here it is:
    Disney captured Walter and painted him purple, and put him in a red shirt for some new show that airs on Disney XD.

    Walter may look a bit like Crash but they have totally different personalities. Walter isn't a destructive type for one thing.
    One thing I don't get is how people Crash meets seem to take the fact that he is basically a living puppet in stride. Nobody seems to think this is a big deal. The first episode they show him being created and coming to life and the family treats it as highly strange. After that Crash just seems to roam about at will and no one he meets bats an eye. Maybe I should just repeat the Mystery Science Theatre mantra here.

    I love this show! It's really funny, and I was looking forward to it ever since I saw the promo. But I'm sad that they took it off for more Mr. Young. But it's only for a while, because Wikipedia says there are 26 episodes.

    Those interview clips are better than any of the episodes I've seen thus far. That said, my 4 and 6 year old love it and it gives us a puppet show to watch outside of Muppet DVDs and Sesame Street.

    ...and Avengers is the best show on D XD, followe by Ultimate Spider-Man. Just saying.

    I liked the newest episode where they have to deal with two annoying people. And about you guys not liking the sisters, I do. Amanda's hot, Cleo's cute, and Jasmine's adorable. Maybe if you guys would just give it a chance and watch a full episode, you guys would like it like I do.
