Hilarious show, classic characters
9 March 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

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.
