How is it people can't tell the difference between rubbish remakes and good ones?
I've seen quite a lot of criticism of the new Reggie Perrin remake with Martin Clunes. With the notable exception of a horrible laughter track, I think it's pretty good. I like the ways they have updated the series, and particularly the scenes in the train... I used to think Reggie was overreacting to his railway woes in the original series, but the concerns and worries of the new Reggie rang much truer to me.
I loved the old series and Leonard Rossiter, but unless it all goes wrong, I think I am going to like this one even more.
