Supermarket From Hell
16 September 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

We shall never know what made Leonard Rossiter agree to star in this feeble Thames sitcom. It certainly couldn't have been the quality of the scripts. Though penned by Brian Cooke, one half of the writing team behind 'Man About The House' and 'George & Mildred', they proved about as funny as anthrax. The show cast Rossiter as 'Norman Tripper', the permanently harassed manager of a supermarket whose staff are either lazy or incompetent. Typical of the show's level of humour is the fact that two characters are named 'Laurel' and 'Hardy' so that Tripper can make a reference to 'Laurel & Hardy' the comedy duo. As Tripper, its easily Rossiter's least distinguished comedy performance, though this is not his fault. Tripper comes across as a weak 'Basil Fawlty' clone, constantly shouting his not very funny lines to no avail. Midway through the transmission of this series, Rossiter passed away, making 'Tripper's Day' his last ever work for television. Shame. He deserved a better epitaph than this.
