The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin (Series 1)

The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin is the tale of a man, in modern society, who has reached the end of his tether. Surrounded by colleagues and family who cannot see how pointless and perverse life has got and plagued by sexual fantasies about his secretary, he resolves to end it all by faking his own suicide and disappearing.

The delightful Leonard Rossiter is Reginald Perrin, a forty six year old sales executive at Sunshine Desserts, a hum drum company, run by an owner who is completely aware that he's surrounded by sycophants. As Reggie gets more and more disgruntled with his work and with his life he begins to take liberties with what other people would call "acceptable behaviour" pushing the envelope further and further just to get some sort of response, any sort of response, from the people around him.

This series is strictly for fans of “ancient” British comedy series and although is almost a direct translation of the novel by Reginald Perrin, it unfortunately falls flat in the 21st century with gags that were probably once funny over 30 years ago, unfortunately now falls flat.

The video quality of this series is considerable quite acceptable for a series that is over a quarter of a century old but suffers from colour issues and film artefacting. The audio is only mono that does like the humour sound flat and somewhat muzzled.

When it comes to extras, The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin - Series One once again fails to deliver. With that said, this series is probably only aimed at hardcore fans of the original BBC series and how many of them are there at the moment is hard to know. Let your father or grandfather check this one out!
