Popular sitcom set in a seedy bedsit lorded over by the mean, vain, boastful, cowardly landlord Rigsby. In each episode, his conceits are debunked by his long suffering tenants. Written by
The original name of Leonard Rossiter's character was Rooksby. This was changed to Rigsby after complaints and threats of legal action from a real-life Mr. Rooksby who objected to the unflattering portrayal of a character with the same name as him. See more »
This is a very funny classic British TV series. Though it was made in the 70s, it stands the test of time. Leonard Rossiter as RIGSBY is a classic-- RIGSBY is a cross between Archie Bunker and Al Bundy with some Basil Fawlty thrown in. Richard Beckinsale who plays ALAN, was the father of the LAST DAYS OF DISCO's Kate Beckinsale.
