Downloading IMDB dataset from torchtext taking 20 mins+ on Colab

Trying to run this piece of code from Ben Trevett’s github repo, but it takes a hell of time
for something pretty basic. Any thoughts on why this is happening and how do I get out of it?

from torchtext.legacy import datasets

train_data, test_data = datasets.IMDB.splits(TEXT, LABEL)
