  6. Rob M says:

    It’s very hard for me to pick a favourite only fools and horses episode – because lets face it, every episode is fantastic.

    but I suppose if I absolutely had to pick 1 – I guess it would be the jolly boys outing, because I live about 60 minutes away from Margate, I can get to the place in 1 hour – I always go there once a year for a visit, and everytime I go, it always reminds me of Trigger wearing the ‘kiss me quick’ hat and holding his dolphin.

    can I just suggest, anyone who has never been to Margate, and they intend on going at some point, please do indeed go – you’ll have a real fun day out, its awesome.

  7. Paddy The Greek says:

          1.STAGE FRIGHT
          2.THE CLASS OF 62
          3.HE AINT HEAVY HES MY UNCLE
          4.THREE MEN A WOMAN AND A BABY.

          I do not know why I put THE SKYS THE LIMIT IN although it is a great episode,these are my favourite episodes of series 7.And series 7 is still my second best series.

  8. Lee says:

    My Top 5 are:

    1.Yuppy Love
    2.Cash and Curry
    3.Wanted
    4.A Royal Flush
    5.Class of ’62

    • Harry1994 says:

      Good choices.. Yuppy love is a very good episode, just outside of my top 5.. cant say im that keen on A Royal Flush though, didnt feel like any of the others for me..

  9. Harry1994 says:

    Very hard to come up with 5 but mine would be: 1) The Jolly boys outing 2) Dates 3) Class of 62 4) Healthy competition 5) Whos a pretty boy. Any comments are welcome.. Would be interesting to hear which series everyone likes the most – for me it has got to be series 3.

    • Lee says:

      “Yuppy Love” has to be my favourite. Do you have – or know anyone that has the uncut version.. The scene with Rodney, Mickey Pearce and Jevon?

      • Harry1994 says:

        I dont sorry mate ive seen quite a few cuts from various episodes but not this cut – i really wish the BBC would release an actual complete OFAH box set with no cuts, i can guaruntee they would make their money back and more if they did.

    • Lee says:

      “Yuppy Love” has to be my favourite. Do you have – or know anyone that has the uncut version.. The scene with Rodney, Mickey Pearce and Jevon?

  10. Louis Richmond says:

    The best series was series 3 a lot of funny eposiodes were made in series 3. Best special is fatal attraction I have never laughter so much. Worst series was 7 great length eposiodes but not that funny.

  11. Hard but if i had to choose my favorite two episodes(but i love them all) will have to be friday the 14th & jolly boys outing.

  12. John s says:

    1/ Chain Gang
    2/ Groovy Gang
    3/ Yuppy Love
    4/ Healthy Competition
    5/ A Losing Streak

    Of the specials I love Peckham Spring & Time On Our Hands, oh and Jolly Boys Outing, Miami Twice…

    If I’m being honest, the only one I didn’t really like was the one when Rodders is accused of harassing the weirdo woman & goes into hiding. Is that Rodney Come Home?

  13. Griff says:

    Non-specials top 5:

    1-The Class of ’62
    2-Danger UXD
    3-Yuppy Love
    4-Chain Gang
    5-Little Problems

    None of my top 5 involve Grandad, but, it’s a fact for me that OFAH improved with age. Which means, the episodes became funnier and had better storylines. I absolutely loved Grandad but it’s not his fault that programmes like OFAH evolve greatly.

    So, as a special mention, here is my top 5 pre-Buster Merryfield list:

    1-The Russians Are Coming
    2-Cash and Curry
    3-A Losing Streak
    4-Ashes to Ashes
    5-No Greater Love

    Top 5 Specials:

    1-The Jolly Boy’s Outing
    2-Miami Twice
    3-To Hull and Back
    4-Mother Nature’s Son
    5-The Frog’s Legacy

  14. will owen says:

    1) Chain gang
    2) Tea for three
    3) A touch of glass.
    4) heros and villains
    5) the unlucky winner is…
    6) the sky’s limit
    7) Friday the 13th
    8)

  15. ljobi says:

    tough but:
    1. Miami Twice (2nd part)
    2. Chain Gang
    3. The Yolly Boys Outing
    4. A Touch of Glass
    5. To Hull and Back

    Too sad I couldn’t put these into my list: Fatal Extraction, Strangers on the Shore, The Unlucky Winner is, Danger UXD, Miami Twice 1st part, Friday the 14th, A Losing Streak, Sleepless in Peckham, Who’s a Pretty Boy, If They Could See Us Now.

  16. Kevin says:

    Rodney come home
    Yuppie love
    Three men a woman and a baby
    Miami twice
    Modern men (sad but funny)

    • admin says:

      Wow Rodney Come home at number 1
      What was it about that episode that made you laugh?
      It wasnt particularly memorable for me

      • Kevin says:

        My list wasn’t in order but Rodney come home is one of my top favourites.

        The bit where Albert needs to look horrified at Rodney for taking a girl to the pictures, and Albert does it all wrong. Well funny

        What are your top 5 episodes

      • Griff says:

        For me, ‘Dates’ had a depressing touch to it. Despite it having many hilarious moments in it, there is something about the feel of this episode that I have never liked.

    • Arthur Boy says:

      No Yellow Peril? What about The Longest Night?

      • Kevin says:

        I watched the frogs legacy last night and that is a well funny one, didn’t realise how funny it was. Albert doing the 3rd act from singing in the rain. He mentioned your CV, a nice little citeron, I think he meant my curriculum vitae, that doesn’t matter there’s no heavy lifting involved. Hahaha

    • Hibs says:

      Rodney come home? Probably the worst episode of all!

    • Hibs says:

      I don’t know how anyone can put episodes with granddad in their top 5(except the one I included)…pleasant enough, but only really had one big joke per episode.

      Top 5 (in no order);

      Where Rodney meets Cassandra
      Groovy Gang
      Miami 2nd episode
      Friday 14th
      Jolly boys outing

  17. Nicola says:

    my fav episodes are —
    1 – miami twice
    2 – danger uxd
    3 – stage fright
    4 – the unlucky winner is
    5 – friday 13th

    as much as a love grandad you cant beat uncle albert this is the only comedy to get better with age as most get worse as they run out of ideas!

    • stevo says:

      Miami twice the best episode!?!?!?

      What are you on about?

      THIS IS A RESPECTABLE TOP 5

      1: JOLLY BOYS OUTING
      2: YUPPY LOVE
      3: THE UNLUCKY WINNER IS
      4: WHOS A PRETTY BOY
      5: A LOSING STREAK

      STICK THAT IN YER PIPE!

      • Arthur Boy says:

        Unlucky winner seems so outdated and kind of cringeworthy. Especially the scenes filmed in the hotel suite. The actress playing Cassadra was awful!

  18. Chrissy Byrne says:

    Hi All, my husband and I are having a disagreement about certain characters who have appeared in OFAH. What we need to know are the names of two actors – the actor who played Tony Angelino – everyone remembers CWYING!!! and the name of the actor who played the detective Roy Slater. They both look similar and it’s driving us nuts! Hope someone can help. Thanks

    • Matthew James says:

      Hi. I don’t know if you still need the answer but the actors are:

      Jim Broadbent – Roy Slater
      and
      Phillip Pope – Tony Angelino

    if you want an episode for absolute comedy you could choose The Gary Episode, i think it was called strangers on the shore.

    My favourite episode however is Jolly boys outing.
