We just rented out the first series of Reginald Perrin - Baron hadn't seen it before and I hadn't watched it for a couple of decades. We've just binge watched it - what a fucking wonderful creation it was. I was doubled up laughing. I'd forgotten how deliciously he disappears into his own world and how amazing Joan's outfits were.
I can't believe our luck in finding the original out at a shop here.

Yes, he really was amazing.
In a way I'm surprised my parents let me watch this the first time round. It was all very ha ha hee hee but had a slightly distressing undercurrent of someone losing their bearings and I know I found it really puzzling as well as compelling. Why is he doing that? Why is he throwing things out the window? But my parents would roar so I roared too in my teddy bear dressing gown even though I had no idea what was going on.
The 'feel' of the show is what has stayed with me All these years - the texture of it. I had forgotten many of the scenes (the dinner party that never was) but LR's amazing capacity to show someone becoming increasingly bold as they dissolve is for the ages.

The supporting cast was just a bundle of joys, too - everybody perfectly cast. John Barron was phenomenal. And any scene featuring LR and JB together....I'm just open mouthed.
