Learning how to ride a bike

I don’t care. I laughed anyway.

That’s Simon Pegg (responsible for awesomely funny movies)  in the BBC sketch comedy Big Train. Don’t bother looking for it on the BBC America channel because that channel is in love with Star Trek: The Next Generation reruns. (Having one British actor in an American-made TV program qualifies Star Trek as an honorary BBC production, apparently.) Big Train is available on NetFlix though.

    I wasn’t amused. It’s hard to laugh at children.

    I hope by the third scene it was apparent that there is a dummy on the bike, hence the joke being that the father has the bike almost stationary and the thing flops over with a thud. If not, then I suppose you were screaming by the fourth scene.

    Got a big kick out of it, but mostly I enjoyed hearing my husband giggle as he watched it.

    This is sick and wrong… so sick and wrong I had to spend an hour on YouTube looking at Simon Pegg’s videos. AJ, you are hilarious.

    I was living in England when it was on, and I loved it. I got it recently from Netflix and was really disappointed that there was a laugh-track. I didn’t remember that. I’m not used to a laugh-track anymore.

    And by the way, the show he did after that one, “Spaced,” is one of the best shows in the history of the planet.
