Featuring light entertainment legend Bruce Forsyth in his only sitcom role, Slinger's Day charts the trials and tribulations of the beleaguered manager of a London supermarket. This hilarious Thames series boasts scripts by veteran comedy writers Brian Cooke and Vince Powell, Sorry creators Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent, and novelist Alex Shearer. This set contains both series.
Environmental protesters, a shoplifting epidemic, a burgeoning butter mountain and largely incompetent staff are just a few of the problems facing Cecil Slinger, the new manager of Supafare. And just how is he supposed to offload 560 packets of Jacobson's Savoury Fishcakes when no-one wants to buy them? Slinger has to concede that the public doesn't respond to lying, cheating and deception any more. Whatever happened to the old values?

I remember this as light hearted but very funny series and Bruce Forsythe highly entertaining as the mad-cap supermarket manager whose staff are always being chased around by Slinger keeping them in line.
Good to see more of these slightly obscure sitcoms from the golden era of T.V finding a rightful place on DVD.
Good on Network!
Cecil Slinger (Bruce Forsyth) arrives as the new manager of the Supafare supermarket and proceeds to try and tame the staff and actually sell some goods. However, anything and everything that can go wrong does go wrong providing lots of very funny situations and plenty of opportunity for good old fashioned slapstick comedy.
Bruce Forsyth is in his element here and the supporting cast are just great. If you're a fan of these 80's shows then you will love this, even more so if you like slapstick routines and silly situations a la Charlie Chaplin.
Two series are just right!
Leonard Rossiter previously appeared in the preceding Thames series Tripper's Day and sadly the series had to be cancelled due to his passing.
With a good supporting cast, Slinger's Day is worth a watch. Look out for Andrew Paul, a young actor who four years later would start a role lasting over a decade as PC Dave Quinnan in the Thames police series The Bill. Paul's debut with the Bill will feature on the next boxset of that series.
Sit back and enjoy the fun.

It was interesting to see Sir Bruce Forsyth in his only TV comedy, but not a patch on Trippers Day with Leonard Rossiter.Published 8 months ago by Bonnie
