Figaro Club Rules
4 April 2009 | by mannyglitzSee all my reviews

It has taken me years to remember this series, but it was wonderful. Post war Britain remembered by Nimrod, the boy, who was adopted by Big Jim and his Figaro Club. The really memorable bit was the cry "One bugger calls on Figaro, every bugger calls on Figaro!" Once invoked, the Figaro Club was duty bound to carry through whatever plot was hatched. Great comedy. Can't find it on DVD anywhere - why doesn't the BBC release their old treasures? Don't they want to make money? I remember it was Norman Rossington as Big Jim, but the rest of the cast eludes me. Come on BBC - what about a thirty year reissue, so that another generation can appreciate this little gem?
