    I'm watching Reggie Perrin on Netflix right now. I just finished the first episode. The laugh track is odd but the show is addictive. I wasn't aware that the first version of the show, "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin," starred my ultimate crush, Leonard Rossiter.

    Thank you.

    I watched the remake a couple of years ago, it was horrible.

    Leonard Rossiter is the gold standard for me, but this is okay.

    The one I watched had Martin Clunes in it. I guess it never even got a second series. I am watching Hellfjord now, I think you would like it. It is a really strange Norwegian show, you could ask gp2 about it, but he is probably from Toledo.
