Reggie Perrin

This is a half hour British comedy starring Martin Clunes. I'm not normally a fan of British comedy shows. They tend to be a little too slapstick for my taste, but this one has clever dialog and Martin Clunes (Doc Martin), who delivers the lines flawlessly. Episode 3, when he delivers a lecture on capitalism to some school children, is a particular gem.

Give it a try and have a chuckle or two.

Just an additional note: the laugh track may drive you crazy. But it's still worth a watch.

1. We watched it when it first ran.

Funny stuff. Is it streaming on Netflix? What is the actual title of the show. Something like the rise and fall of Reginald Perrin?

3. "The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin" was a 1970s version of the same show

with the late Leonard Rossiter in the title role.

5. Do you know if there is a third season?

I can't find any mention of a third season, and season 2 is a bit of a cliff hanger.
