Make sure you let us know your Worst 5 Only Fools & Horses Episodes in the comments below.
Or 5 Only Fools and Horses episodes that didn’t quite hit the mark! Of course all episodes are still at worst – good. Ranging from good to genius the episodes are there to be judged. It seems on the odd occassion the plot or story line doesn’t quite gel as well as others.
I must say this is one of the hardest articles to write and I know many of you won’t agree, which is why we have a post area for you to voice your opinion afterwards.
Here goes, “in no particular order” (we hear that every saturday night on X-factor, Strictly, Celebrity etc.) The worst 5 in my opinion…
(from episode one)
Lows: The overall story wasn’t overly funny with the Trotters’ Ethnic Tours is a scenic tour around Chingford
Highs: The way Rodney wakes up from one job to the next is hilarious
(from episode two)
Lows: Shows a softer side to Del, but just doesn’t have the comedy value like other episodes. Maybe we are possesive to want Del to avoid women as we love the Del Rodney Grandad trio and we are not ready for the women to move into the sitcom yet. I wasnt to keen on the musical element with snapshots and “Zoom” being played. Just felt a little to soppy.
Highs: The Cluster of solitaire diamond ring joke!
(from episode four)
Lows: The ‘imaginary’ girlfriend, and Mickey Pearce ribbing Rodney about the Saturday night bash in The Nag’s Head. Is all a little tame on plot, it becomes obvious that 30 minutes isn’t enough to build a great story into as bits were cut on this episode.
Highs: Del boy thinks it’s £50 winnings, but it turns out the bet was for fifty pence, not pounds.
(from episode five)
Lows: Unusaully seedy and not that funny for an only fools and horses episode
Highs: Del’s tale of a killer Rhino escaping from London Zoo
(from 2001 special)
Lows: No one was comfortable with the Trotters being millionaires. Del seemed extra stressed and grumpy, and the episode lost a lot from having to stage a memorial for Albert and the loss of Mike the barman. Under the circumstances it did well.
Highs: Turning up at the wrong memorial – classic fools
“What about you, do you feel there was a poor Only Fools episode – do you disagree with our choice?”
