Big Train

Big Train

Big Train est une série de sketchs complètement surréalistes, joués par certains des meilleurs acteurs comiques dont Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Spaced, Hot Fuzz), Julia Davis (Nighty Night, Human Remains) et Catherine Tate (The Catherine Tate Show; Wild West).

Quelques thèmes sont récurrents comme la vie professionnelle au bureau, la chirurgie et une fixation sur les jockeys.

La série déforme toutes les situations courantes en d’improbables scénarios tous les plus drôles les uns que les autres comme par exemple les avantages et les inconvénients d’avoir des mains immenses alors qu’aujourd’hui tout est à la micro-technologie…

Je dois dire que Simon Pegg est absolument génial dans cette série. Il fait partie de la même veine que Martin Freeman (avec qui il joue d’ailleurs dans Hot Fuzz).

Nous avions parlé de Big Train avec ce sketch qui reflète bien l’esprit de la série.

8 pensées sur “Big Train”

  1. Sod! I felt like watching an episode of Big Train instead of doing my school work (saw the first one a couple of weeks ago and quite liked the atypical sense of humour and the British accent) but it seems the links are dead :
    “An error has occured:
    This file has been deleted.
    Reason: No download for a longer period. Inactivity-timeout exceeded.”
    Too bad… Will turn to the Black Donnellys instead then…
    ps: I just loved “New Amsterdam”, thanks again !!!

  2. Oh not, I remember now why I did not continue with the Black Donnellys after episode 6 : the rest are “File not found”.
    Ok, the sign is clear : if you insist, I’m off to work then.
    Why is being wise so hard sometimes?

  3. Ah, I feel sorry for you venichou !!! Thing is RS deletes all files that haven’t been downloaded in the last 90 days… if they’re not downloaded, they’ll die off within 3 months.

    I’ve put a new set for Big Train. See if they work for you.

    Ps : I’m glad you liked New Amsterdam. New eps get posted every week :)

  4. So season 1 of New Amsterdam is not over, frozen, abandoned, finished, kaput ?
    YES !!! Can go to school with joy in my heart (might be over-doing it here ;-)

  5. Oh, sod! So I watched the last of the first season tonight then ? (it did seem like an end though, with Amsterdam’s back fading in the middle of the street – so unsafe in NYC ! – after splitting up with his doctor girlfriend)

    Turned to “Big Train” episode 2, and was asked when on “rapidshare” to download the Zango software to allow for advertising and be able to continue: a virus, or nothing to be afraid of? A puzzling novelty, thought I’d ask you, guru!
    No need for a quick answer, enjoy your Spanish hols !!!
