    Only Fools And Horses

    Who else is a fan of this classic sitcom?

    You just can't beat it! The episode is on where they go on a fishing trip and stop in Boycey's holiday home, there also an axed murderer on the run having escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane. Brilliant episode, very funny
    Barney: Hello, my name is Barney Gumble, and I'm an alcoholic.
    Lisa: Mr Gumble, this is a girl scouts meeting.
    Barney: Is it, or is it you girls can't admit that you have a problem?

    Yes it is probably the best TV sitcom there has been. Great writing and performances all round.

    Excellent show. I liked the Batman and Robin episode. Also, when they found the watch and got rich...felt good after soooo many years.

    It was good, but it gets repeated to death - so much so that I just find it tiresome now. Whenever the Beeb or one of the Dave-like channels needs something to fill a slot, it's always dragged out. There are other comedies I prefer, and they get noticably less airtime: Black Adder or Yes Minister, for instance.

    Lokasenna, I agree they are repeated to often. I'm still tempted to get the complete box set. It would be good to watch them in order

    Tony Walt, those three episodes where they became millionaires was soooo funny when they were first aired! I remember was back in 1996 at Christmas, I watched then round my grandparents. Aaah good memories...
