Storyline

Perrins is now experiencing a sharp downfall in its fortunes - not helped by lofty's thievery,which caused a mass exodus. Kenny's drunken exploits with a meat cleaver and a recent stomach bug have both got the community unwelcome press coverage and a petition is once more presented demanding its closure. The crunch comes when the main house is invaded by thugs angered by Jimmy's vigilantes - and this too ends up in the papers. Written by don @ minifie-1

High Noon At Perrins!
22 November 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Snooty Mrs.E. Blythe-Erpingham ( Joan Peart ) delivers a petition to Perrins, demanding the community be closed. Reggie insults her before tearing the thing up. In a pub, he is rude to a landlord. Later, he walks recklessly in front of a police car. He is angry because, in the wake of Clive 'Lofty' Anstruther's thefts, guests are leaving en masse, and morale is low amongst the staff. McBlane's drunken behaviour is earning the community shock-horror headlines in 'The Daily Gunge'.

Reggie bumps into Seamus Finnegan ( Derry Power ), and the ex-Irish labourer turned company director has even more grave news for him. A local gang of villains, enraged at having their authority challenged by Jimmy's peace-keeping force, are planning on invading Perrins and roughing up the staff...

The penultimate episode sets the scene for the finale, with Perrins disintegrating gradually and Reggie himself like a volcano waiting to erupt. The return of Seamus Finnegan reminds one what a good character he is compared to the unpleasant ( and unfunny ) McBlane. The sight of the Perrins staff shuffling around the garden at night disguised as trees is, as our American friends would say, a 'Jump The Shark' moment.

Funniest moment - C.J. reading an extract from his new book, which he hopes will do for ants what 'Watership Down' did for rabbits. He doesn't get far when the sound of breaking glass can be heard coming from outside. "Thank God!", exclaims Reggie, "The yobboes have arrived!".
