Editorial Reviews

Voted the best British sitcom of all time in a 2004 audience poll, Only Fools and Horses entered its seventh and final regular season with Rodney's hasty retreat back to Nelson Mandela House, a move that conflicts with Del's plans to persuade Raquel to relocate to Chez Trotter. Even Uncle Albert takes his chance with romance, yet through it all Trotter's Independent Traders (TIT for short) remain active as ever in their hilarious pursuit of any scheme that might bring that elusive million to the brothers Trotter.

Format:DVD
Produced in 1991, series seven marks the final series of episodes for this classic, long-running britcom. As with series six, this one features six tightly-written, laugh-filled 50-minute episodes (plus the 75-minute Christmas special). It too is serial in nature (ie. the episodes should be watched in chronological order), and if you enjoyed series six, you will not be disappointed with this one.

For those unfamiliar, the series revolves around the predicaments in which Derek "Del Boy" Trotter (David Jason), the smooth-talking wheeler-dealer of "quality-challenged" merchandise, lands himself, not to mention anyone within close proximity--which inevitably includes his younger brother, Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst) (who, though better educated and slightly more cultured (which, believe me, is not saying a lot), lacks Del's street-smarts and shrewdness).

All the regulars are back for series seven: Boycie, the arrogant, shady used-car salesman, and his tarty wife, Marlene; Denzil (Paul Barber), the lorry-driver who's a sucker for getting caught up in Del's schemes; Trigger (Roger Lloyd Pack), the daft road sweeper to whom Rodney will always be "Dave"; Mike the barman; Rodney's new wife, the sophisticated and elegant Cassandra; and last but not least, jolly old Uncle Albert, a less-than-capable old sea dog who could clear a room in seconds by uttering those immortal words, "During the war...." Also, a new regular joins the cast: Del's long-lost sweetheart, Raquel (who first appeared in "Dates" (just prior to series six) and re-entered Del's life in "Jolly Boys' Outing" following series six).

Series seven kicks off with the 1990 Christmas special entitled "Rodney Come Home".

5.0 out of 5 stars Trotter's Indepedent Fun October 22, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If not for my Britcom loving ex-pat English wife, I probably would have never discovered Only Fools and Horses. Starting with Series 1 - 3, these stateside DVD releases are met with anticipation in our household that only rivals Christmas. That being said, it was "Holiday Time" once again as Series 7 arrived at the front door.

For the uninformed, Only Fools follows the exploits of brothers/"businessmen" Derrick & Rodney Trotter. Accompanied by a cast of strong supporting characters (Especially Roger Floyd-Pack as Trigger who also plays Owen in the Vicar of Dibley), Only Fools travels familiar sitcom roads albeit with a fresh, funny and character driven approach. The final episode "Three Men, A Woman and A Baby" drives this point home.

Britcoms differ greatly from their American counterparts. By using a fifty minute time format, Only Fools is able to broaden the palette. Not only do you have great comedic moments, but you have interwoven areas of drama, that thanks to strong character development, provide for a stronger, more balanced show.

I am not sure how well Series 7 will translate to American viewers. Although it is great television, it is not typical American fare and there are a lot of dated and transatlantic colloquialisms that I even had to ask about. However, if you are already a lover of British television and especially Only Fools, then Series 7 will be a great addition. After all, Only Fools is the only reason I took a picture of a "3-Wheel Van" while in England earlier this year!

It would have been nice if the BBC would have kept up with the DVD packaging they produced for the first two Only Fools sets. The cheap plastic case Series 7 arrives in resembles something Del might pass off as "New and exquisite!"

If you are new to the series, start from the beginning. If you already know the Trotter's than pick right up where you left off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, Side-Splitting British Comedy October 13, 2006
By Smash B
Format:DVD
This is Britcom at its very best. Join the Brothers Trotter for the seventh and final regular season of one of the funniest shows ever to grace the television screen on either side of the Atlantic.

This season begins with the special, "Rodney Come Home" (which should be viewed first). As the season progresses, we follow the antics of the loveable but larcenous Derrick (DelBoy) as he practices his art of selling questionable, to say the least, merchandise. We see his love affair with Raquel bloom and grow into something truly beautiful.

Rodney is back at Nelson Mandela House after a short and disastrous marriage and the laughs continue as he returns to his earlier luckless wanderings and reluctant participation in DelBoy's schemes.

Uncle Albert is not to be missed with his many tales of wartime antics which no one wishes to hear.

Along for the rollicking ride are the usual cast of characters: Boycie, the profitable and shameless used car dealer and his saucy wife Marlene with new baby in tow; Trigger, the intellectually challenged road sweeper; Mike, the bar owner; and Denzil, the hapless victim of DelBoy's ventures. Also included are Cassandra, Rodney's estranged wife, and Raquel, DelBoy's true love.

Each 50 minute episode will have you holding your sides from laughing and wishing for more episodes to come. Don't miss this hilarious Britcom in all its glorious splendor and pray that the remaining specials will soon be released as well.

So sit back, pop in a disc, and prepare to laugh your head off. Highly recommended. Lovely jubbly!
