HilariousBy john evans from cardiff,wales. , 16 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Definately not PC by today`s ultra correct standards but very funny none the less.Rigsby the racist bigot of a landlord,Miss Jones,a tenant and unresponsive object of his desires and the two students,Alan the innocent and Philip,son of an African King and owner of ten wives.In one episode he convinces Rigsby that burning a piece of Lovewood which he had brought from Africa would make Miss Jones lower her resistance to him.Rigsby pursues her with this smouldering wood not realising it`s a bit off the back of a wardrobe.The acting by everybody is marvellous.

"Of Course I Can Help You.. I'm Not Just A Landlord.. I'm a Friend And Council.. Yes, What's Your Little Problem Love"?By a customer , 07 Aug 2012'Rising Damp' has to be one of the best sitcoms from the 1970's, with its non-PC humour.....
So when I saw 'Rising Damp - Series 1 To 4 - The Complete Works' on here for rental, I just had to watch them all again.....
It's as good now, as it ever was and is sure to have you rocking with laughter !!!

The 70s - another classic comedyBy WilliamJR (8 reviews) from Stafford , 11 Oct 2009When people think back to the 1970s in Britain, memories often are not very pleasant. The three day week, constant strikes, the fashions...., the Common Market and much else. But in one respect the 70s stands out as a beacon from the far future year of 2009, and that is in the realm of TV comedy. Rising Damp was just one of the classic comedy shows in the 70s; in the character of Rupert Rigsby, Leonard Rossiter rules his seedy boarding house with contempt. And Rising Damp was not alone. If you were not alive to enjoy 1970s British comedy, I can also recommend such classics as Fawlty Towers, Dad's Army, Porridge, Morecambe and Wise the Two Ronnies. Read the reviews here on Lovefilm, and enjoy these timeless gems of British laughter.
