Capturing the surreal nature of reality PERFECTLY
This is the ultimate spoof of life. The acting is just out-of-this-world, and the writing wonderfully takes our preconceptions of 'normality' and puts them through a magic mushroom blender. Growing up in England is a very confusing thing. As is portrayed perfectly in the show, there is a strange social normality within which people talk and interact with one another. Big Train takes that casual, chatty 'everything's normal' atmosphere, and injects a little quantum mechanics into it. But it's not just British culture getting splurged, Big Train takes any situation that upon slightly closer inspection is just plain weird. Super villains, the over-the-top dramatic stylings of American movies and sports events all get torn to shreds, and given a chelsea smile. If you've ever felt there was something grossly abnormal about normality, then this show will open the front door, take your shoes off, get you a cuppa, and make you feel right at home.
