5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, very clever, a little bit dark in places and a swearing Vicar...
Rev is too short: only six measly episode per series. And only two series, so far. But that might not be a bad thing. Like Spaced, it might just be two series is enough, the perfect amount, and to go any further would be to ruin something lovely, and it could end up on Series 4, and go all rubbish. Like Prison Break.

The writing in Rev is - in some places -...

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated stereotypes
Was really looking forward to this with all the good reviews but was disappointed. The humour seemed to rely on outdated stereotypes, which I found rather cringe-making.

The situation is unpromising: a sparsely attended and run down church in a run down inner London borough, But as with much of the best comedy the humour is in the characters. Hollander and McBurney in particular are superb.

Loved the first two series and can't wait for the third to be televised. Unlike many good tv series, I can watch all these episodes over and over again and still get the same enjoyment.

Rev. is a comedy which balances itself well, it has a mix of humor and more contemplative moments which gives the audience something to think about while also enjoying the comedy side of it. Very well written and easy viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Rev' : a work of genius, 26 July 2013

This review is from: Rev - Series 1-2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Joyously funny and true to life, as many clergy families will attest. Poignant and honest. I recommend it to anybody who has any connection with the Anglican church.

Not a weak episode in either series.

It's just brilliantly observed, very funny and poignant. Fantastic actors, have fallen in love with Tom Hollander and his Rev dancing.

I didn't see the whole series when it was shown so sitting down to enjoy the complete series one and two (not all in the one sitting you understand) was magic. A beautifully crafted piece, great acting and a true treasure to behold.
