  • Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 2

    "MJN Air, I love you"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The second series is as strong as the first. I love the second episode and the revelation about Martin. He is portrayed so fantastically by Benedict Cumberbatch. He could easily be a ridiculous and unsympathetic laughingstock but as voiced by Cumberbatch, his yearnings and frustrations are as real as his shortcomings and I just want to give him a hug! The Johannesburg and Kuala Lumpur episodes are both classics as well.

  • Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 4

    "the best yet!"

    Story

    If you're considering buying this you're probably already a fan, right? I'll just say that this season contains two episodes (Vaduz and Wokingham) with plot lines that fans absolutely yearned for. Other highlights include another Birling Day, Douglas sincerely calling Martin a genius, Herc and Carolyn at the beach, some new twists on Yellow Car, everyone spends the night sleeping on Gertie... The whole season is basically a nonstop highlight reel, actually.

  • Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 3

    "MJN keeps flying, I keep laughing"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Fabulous as per usual.
    "Qikiqtarjuaq"-- what Douglas puts Martin through is excruciating and hilarious
    "Paris"-- since I came to Cabin Pressure as a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch from Sherlock, this is my very favorite episode, in which Martin attempts to solve a mystery on board
    "Newcastle"-- Benedict Cumberbatch is replaced in this episode and the stand-in doesn't quite have his note of desperation. Wish I could hear the real Martin try to flirt with the female pilot they are ferrying
    "Ottery St. Mary"-- Delves into the age-old questions, (1) can one visualize 100 otters and (2) would they fit comfortably in Gertie? This episode is special because finally, finally, for once, Douglas does something nice for Martin
    "Rotterdam"-- Really makes the most of the radio format as Martin, Douglas, Herc and another man also named Martin compete to sound the smoothest and most confident for MJN's welcome recording.
    "St. Petersburg"-- a tense but great day, in different ways, for Martin, Douglas, Arthur and Carolyn and hence a treat for listeners. I was delighted to hear that a fourth series is planned, but if this had to be the show's finale, it is fitting.

  • Cabin Pressure

    "As Arthur would say: Brilliant!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This radio program is hilarious. The writing, the premise and the cast are excellent. I just wish there were loads more than three six-episode seasons. All the episodes are good but I have a particular fondness for the first as a marvelous showcase for Martin's dithering.

    5 stars due to content, but some content is missing...what content? The interview with Elijah Wood is nowhere to be found, at least not in the correct order. Just thought I'd let ya know...
