System Crash is a Canadian youth sketch comedy television show, which aired on YTV from 1999 to 2001.[1]

The series centred on a group of students in a junior high school media club, telling the events of their fictional school, Lambton Junior High, in the past week.[2] Each episode usually had a theme, i.e. parents.

Recurring segments[edit]

  • Fly on the Wall - Uses hidden cameras to show what happens when no one is looking (i.e. why girls go to the bathroom in pairs and what do they do once they're in there?)
  • Burnbaum Helps - Burnbaum helping people. However, it always ends badly for the person that asks for help. It was replaced with Battleford Helps when Burnbaum left the show.
  • Canadian Council for Concerned Kids - Zoe's informative 'public service announcement' styled segment, providing important messages to adults on the way they should treat and interact with their children.
  • Garage Band - During the first season (1999), several of the episodes ended with a Garage Band segment. It featured members of the Canadian band Serial Joe playing humorous songs with the principal cast.
  • Lambton News - Talks about current events. Hosted by Carla Waller in the first season and Emily Pereira afterwards.
  • Sports Update - An update on sports at the school. Hosted by Wedgie Goldstein in the first season and Noogie Monoham (Zach Pettiford) afterwards.
  • Lambton Legends - Looking back at various legendary athletes and other famous Lambton alumni.
  • Lambton Home Shopping - Beau Peterson sells useless products and inventions to the students of Lambton via a Home Shopping Network styled-show.
  • Movie Spoofs - Movies of all kinds were constantly spoofed - Examples include Gladiator, Cast Away, Star Wars, The Maltese Falcon, The Incredible Hulk, The Matrix, E.T., Jaws, etc.
  • Kyle's Notes - Kyle Cooper giving unreliable lectures and his notes. This was used during the first season and ended when Ryan Field left the show.
