Hilarious, original comedy show.

BIG TRAIN (UK, 1998)

A brilliant show that, sadly, did not run for very long on British screens. The superb cast, who are able to carry even the most craziest of sketches, do a great job and the writing is spot-on.

Some of the sketches, especially those featured in the first series are classic. The sniper farmer, the Bee Gees shootout, the stare-outs, the boss with a phobia of spoons and of course the little boy on the bike. Real laugh-out-loud stuff.

Superb, fresh comedy at its most British. Love it!
