Fairly funny spin-off for Richard O'Sullivan from 'Man about the House'. This series, produced for Thames TV between 1977 and 1981, sees Richard playing Robin again, this time married and setting up his own restaurant. Their one-armed dishwasher Albert also provides plenty of laughs. Comedy relief is also provided by Robin's parents-in-law, who look with much nostalgia upon their divorce day. Not a remarkably outstanding comedy series, but a lot funnier than others.
