Rising Damp

Post by 1964white » Tue Mar 31, 2020 9:15 am

Just watching an episode of 'Rising Damp' on ITV 3

Brilliant.....Rossiter at his best!

The Rigsby/Miss Jones scenes are a delight

A comedy series that always makes me laugh :lol:

Fantastic comedy of its time which I still find funny today. Have you ever seen the film? One of my favourite lines is where Alan the new lodger asks while he’s viewing the room “ isn’t that damp coming down the walls” to which Rigsby replies “ what do you expect , champagne”

Rossiter at his best is Rise and Fall in my opinion ...
I don't like staying at home
When the moon is bleeding red
Woke up stoned in the backseat from a dream where my teeth fell out of my head
Cut it up, cut it up, yeah
Everybody's on something here. My God send chemical best friend. Skeleton whispering in my ear

Excellent in that series too!

In Rising Damp Rossiter didn't have to say word to make me laugh, Rigsby's face reactions were brilliant

I seem to remember Rigsby mentions Leeds United in one episode of Rising Damp but I can never remember which one or why I'm afraid. Might even be the film version but I'm sure it's one of the series episodes. Was Leonard a Leeds fan perhaps? He was born in Liverpool though.

Another Perrin fan here. It still gets quoted regularly. In fact, I didn't get where I am today without quoting Reggie Perrin.

Is Cjay a fan, I wonder...

Rigsby may have well sung 'we are champions, champions of Europe' :scar1
