Editor's Note
Rigsby (Leonard Rossiter) is a year-round Scrooge who owns a decrepit house full of bedsits that he rents out to people who've fallen on hard times. The Britcom RISING DAMP follows his antics as he tries to woo the object of his affections, Miss Ruth Jones (Frances de la Tour), while making his other tenants' lives miserable. In particular, Alan (Richard Beckinsale), a long-haired hippie, and Philip (Don Warrington), the son of an African chief, meet Rigsby's ire on a regular basis, leading to some very funny scenes in a show that is considered a comedy classic in its native Britain. This collection presents the series' third season in its entirety.

Professional Reviews

DVD Talk 8 of 10
An interesting variation of the Archie Bunker / Alf Garnet bigot, Rigsby is not so much a counterpoint to the changing times that Carroll O'Connor's cabbie had been on All in the Family. Rather, he's more a Scrooge-like grotesque caricature of Britain's aging working class, the generation that lacked much in the way of an education but had fought the Germans in World War II, only to see Britain transformed by a bunch of flower children and seemingly lazy college students they couldn't begin to understand...For most Americans, Rising Damp's appeal is gradual; it's very much a situation comedy that grows on you as you become familiar with the characters and the basic set-up. - Stuart Galbraith, IV
