This review is from: Big Train : Complete BBC Series 1 & 2  [DVD] (DVD)
This is a fantastic dvd and at £15 for 6 hours of intelligent, original and hillarious comedy (not even including the extras) you couldn't do much better. The thing that really makes this stand out from other, less illustrious, sketch shows is the quality of the acting. Kevin Eldon, Mark Heap and of course Simon Pegg are all superb comic actors - their timing and delivery in so many different and varied roles mark this out as a very special piece of television. Of course the quality of the writing can't be ignored either. The use of spot-on parody expanded to the Nth degree and some really beautiful surrealism will keep you constantly guessing. No tedious inevitable punch lines or hackneyed overdone ideas. Just sparkling, creative wit from start to finish. I have to disagree with some previous reviewers and say that the second series is just as good as the first . Following in the great tradition of british comedy Big Train has delivered an excellent and worthy addition to the line.
