5 RECOMMENDED RETAIL PRICELESS COMEDY!TheTennantTwopiece | 08/10/2010 | See all TheTennantTwopiece's reviews (39)Leonard Rossiter's final comedy role exemplifies his talent for comedy creation as he breathes unforgettable life into harrassed supermarket manager Norman Tripper in this classic 80's ITV sitcom. Struggling with the everyday pressures of motivating unmotivatable staff, avoiding the romantic advances of the canteen manageress and a security man trying to get his hands on his job, Rossiter shows the kind of talent which made his other successful characters, Rigsby and Reggie Perrin, so memorable and much loved. Sadly, due to his untimely death, only six episodes of this series were ever made and their release on DVD is long overdue. For harmless, innuendo strewn comedy, there's none finer. As a tribute to one of comedy's finest, it's fitting. Just try to forget that a couple of years later they tried to revive it under the name of Slinger's Day with Bruce Forsythe in the lead role....that was bargain bin material!
