Waiting For Impact

3.8/5

Critic Rating

Dave Holmes is obsessed: What ever happened to Sudden Impact, the R&B boy band whose arrival was announced in Boyz II Men’s “MotownPhilly” video? What happens when you make a big debut, and then…nothing happens? Waiting For Impact is a deep dive into a disappearance that has haunted pop-culture die-hards since 1991. Dave is determined to track the group down and find out what really happened, and along the way he talks to his friends in the entertainment world— comedians, actors, writers— about the twists and turns that led them from where they were in 1991 to where they are in 2021...


Critic Reviews

Score: 3

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Dec 8, 2021

" I didn’t particularly like Waiting for Impact, the Dave Holmes series that tried to figure out what happened to a much-hyped boy band that disappeared without a trace, but that show was a huge nostalgia-bath bomb for the era’s pop-culture infrastructure."


Score: 4.5

Lauren Passell • Podcast The Newsletter Oct 25, 2021

"...as the episode progresses you get the sense that Dave Holmes, who is a keystone to pop music in the 90s, is trying to get at something bigger. It’s both a show about the 90s and an investigation to how we got where we are today in pop culture."
