Editorial Reviews

Released to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the first episode of Only Fools And Horses, this is a box set that can comfortably be described as comprehensive. There are 26 DVDs included in all, which cover seven full series, and all of the Christmas specials, all in one set. That's the entire adventures of Del Boy, Rodney, and the characters of Peckham, all brought together in Britain's best loved sitcom. The instant highlights are the ones that get replayed time and time again on television. Granddad, Rodney and Del cleaning the chandelier. Del falling through the bar. Rodney's wedding, the introduction of Uncle Albert, and the infamous outing to Margate. But the set is also a chance to take in the many other features that added up to make the show Britain's favourite sitcom. Only Fools And Horses, after all, set a template for the important of supporting characters. Boycie and Marlene enjoyed a spin-off series of their own, with The Green Green Grass, but the truth is that the adventures of Trigger, Denzel, Mickey Pearce and Uncle Albert alone could have equally been given top billing. Often, they are. John Sullivan's writing has a real skill in bringing character to the fore as required, but his ultimate achievement here is balancing a sizeable ensemble of regular and occasional characters, and wringing so many laughs out of them. It's a family comedy like no other, and since new Only Fools And Horses episodes left our screens back in 2003, there's been nothing really to match it. Arguably, there never will be, either. Because this is a show that brought together an unrivalled collection of talents, and turned them into national treasures. Only Fools And Horses also ensures, rightly, that the work of the late John Sullivan will be celebrated for a long, long time to come. And, with this latest box set, there's little reason why the show won't keep Britain laughing for a good few years, either. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - but don't order the specials separately! September 13, 2008
Format:DVD
I took Amazon's suggestion to purchase this Complete Collection as well as the 1991-2003 specials. The package arrived yesterday but the Complete Collection INCLUDES the 1991-2003 specials (4-Disc Set E4176 ). I now have two sets and need to return one.

So watch out!

This Complete Collection includes:
The Complete Series 1-3 (E1824)
The Complete Series 4-5 and the Specials (E2058)
The Complete Series 6 plus "The Jolly Boys Outing" (E2389)
The Complete Series 7 plus "Rodney Come Home" (E2689)
The Specials 1991-2003 (E4176)

Other than that, this is a must buy!

This set contains all episodes of OFAH, including the specials. It is simply all the seperately available R1 series box sets packaged in a big box. The disc packaging changes between Series 4-5 and Series 6 which makes it look a bit odd, but that's a minor point. The episodes and specials are arranged in more-or-less chronological order throughout the set - not all the specials have their own seperate discs, which probably explains why this set has less physical discs than the UK version.

However, if, like me, your main reason for purchasing this set is that you get all the episodes of OFAH complete and uncut, then you're going to be disappointed. I can only assume that those who have previously reviewed this set, proclaiming it to be original and uncut haven't yet watched all of it.

The edition of Miami Twice contained in this set is the same edition as released in the UK, i.e Part 1 (the TV episode) and Part 2 (The film - originally broadcast WITHOUT canned laughter) have been edited by chimps into "Miami Twice - The Movie", with bits cut out from the beginnings of the episodes and a new canned laughter track added over the film !

It surely must have cost more time and money to butcher it than just releasing the episodes as broadcast so why do it? No doubt the BBC have some lame excuse about "contractual reasons".

Yes, this boxset is vastly superior to the pathetically poor UK offering, but there is still no complete uncut boxset of Only Fools and Horses to be had on VHS or DVD.

Given the quality of some DVD releases - Dr Who and Red Dwarf for example - this is sheer laziness and arrogance on the part of the BBC. There is absolutely no excuse for this.

It always pays to do some research and it certainly paid off when buying Only Fools And Horses - The Complete Collection.

OFAH has been voted best British comedy of all time by the british public which is a measure of how popular it was and still is in the UK. IMHO it rates against any of the other classic UK comedies such as Dads Army, Fawlty Towers, etc. as it stands the test of time.

My review is intended to point out the fact that there are different versions of the "complete" collection and to be careful which one you choose. There are a fair few reviews on the UK Amazon site which should explain more fully, but suffice to say that the UK version has a whole bunch of stuff taken out. It appears that the main two issues were ...

1) Additional costs (bunce) related to paying for the rights to certain pieces of music. This has led to whole scenes having completely different background music in them.

2) Certain words deemed to be OK in the original versions, are now considered to be too riskee for the political-correctness-gone-mad UK censor of today. The nanny state has finally taken over. Their solution was, rather than to bleep or disguise the word in some way (which would have been too obvious and still ruined it) instead to remove the whole scene!!! What a plonker!

Whichever way you slice it, they have ruined what was and still is (in its original form) a classic piece of UK comedy, that spans the decades and indeed the miles. But hold on I hear you say, why the five star review.

Mange-tout and pot-pouri, I got the SP that the original version in Region 1 (US) format is being knocked out by on the US Amazon website for a score less than in the UK. Lovely jubbly.
