5.0 out of 5 stars The best sketch show Britain has produced in years, 2 Aug 2006
This review is from: Big Train : Complete BBC Series 1 & 2 [1998] [DVD] (DVD)
With most modern day sketch shows making use of recurring characters with "hillarious" catchphrases that grow tired after seeing 1 episode, Big Train is a breath of fresh air. Firstly, it is extremely well written, with no sketch recurring in seperate episodes (the exception being the Stare Out Championships). This leads to the writers giving the viewer fresh sketch after fresh sketch, meaning the programme never gets tiresome. In addition, Big Train has an extremely talented cast of comic actors. Simon Pegg, Kevin Eldon and Mark Heap are all excellent - really bringing to life what the writers had on the page.

Big Train is one of those shows that when talking to people, I always find hard to believe they have not seen it. For anyone with any sort of sense of humour - this DVD is a must.

If you've stumbled across this page from viewing other sketch shows like Little Britain, do yourself a favour and buy this instead - this is what sketch comedy is all about - not the same joke repeated every week.
