Only Fools and Horses: The Complete Collection (DVD)
Enhance your purchase
The first ever episode of Only Fools and Horses was broadcast in September 1981. Over seven seasons and fifteen specials, Del, Rodders and the gang have given us so many precious moments--the chandelier incident, the yuppy bar fall, the Batman and Robin chase--but it is the characters, the story-lines and the great scripts that have earned Only Fools and Horses the enduring love of the public. Every "lovely jubbly", every exhaust-smoking trip of the Reliant Robin and every tear-filled twist kept millions of viewers glued. And they are all here--in the complete story of the Trotters of Nelson Mandela House: from the very first scam to the final 'bonjour'.

The edits aren't all that bad and where the have been cut scenes such as "The Jolly boys outing", that was done because of the singer who was in contract with the BBC at the time, so that scene couldn't make it to the DVD release. Other songs are cut from the set because of copyright laws.
Series 1 through to series 7 excluding the specials are unaffected and are great to watch in its nostalgic glory.
With the specials, it is mainly "A Royal Flush", "The Jolly boys Outing" and "Miami Twice" that have major editing to them. The rest of the boxset just has some minor audio replaced with no dialogue missing. One thing that annoys me about the second part of "Miami Twice" is the addition of canned laughter. It isn't in the TV version and I feel that it is unneccesary and spoils the seriousness of the dialogue.
The episode "Little problems" of series 6 really surprised me and that was that the BBC have left in Simply Red's song "Holding back the years" is still in place despite other reviewers saying it had been cut.
It is easy to mixup the DVDs in this set so I bought some stickers and wrote their list order down so I could keep them in order in the box.
The boxset, in my opinion, is really worth buying despite some of the cuts and edits in places so my advice is for you to buy it while it is still available.
All the specials are included, and particularly in these there are elements of sensitivity mixed in with the comedy.
I have various individual series DVD's and some videos presentations. But, I have some gaps in the collection. So I bought this to consolidate everything in one box, on one format. The presentation of the box is good, with the DVD's arranged with the spine colouring moving though the spectrum from red to blue. The practical side to this is that I can have a sort out of the cupboard that houses DVD's, videos and CD's.
