I think that CRACKER has to be judged as a piece of realist drama
in which, unlike the films of Tarantino, the violence hurts.  That
is one explanation, at least, why it ofended some.  In point of
fact, the second series of CRACKER 'showed' a murder scene in
which we saw neither the murder nor the body - but the response of
those characters who did generated more anxiety in the face of
violence than all the brains scattered over all the cars seats
