DVD Review: Rev. Series Two
For those of you not familiar with Rev., it’s a quirky little comedy that follows the life of Adam, a rural vicar who is placed in an inner city London Parish with a sink or swim attitude form those higher up. In other words, he’s not getting any help adjusting to his radially different flock.
With this being season two, Adam is fairly settled into his role, not that makes life easier, he still has to deal with the drunks and druggies, and figure out just what Jesus wants him to do in many different situations.
Tom Hollander carries the show with his role as Adam, a bumbling out of his depth vicar who will instantly steal your heart. Always trying to do what’s right never fails to cause him to end up in some predicament or another.
Whilst it might be a bit low key for some, The Rev. certainly hits all the right notes as far as I’m concerned and I’m hoping the BBC don’t do what they usually do when I fall in love with one of there shows. Roll on season three.
