Product Description

The second series of John Sullivan's Peckham-based comedy, featuring the market trading activities of Del and Rodney Trotter. The episodes are: 'The Long Legs of the Law', 'Ashes to Ashes', 'A Losing Streak', 'No Greater Love', 'The Yellow Peril', 'It Never Rains', 'A Touch of Glass' and 'Diamonds are for Heather'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Although at first glance a series about a family of lovable spivs who get into endless scrapes as they duck and dive their way through life must have sounded like a complete non-starter, but John Sullivan's quickfire scripts for Only Fools and Horses and the spot-on performances by Jason (Del), Lyndhurst (Rodney) and Pierce (Grandad) combine to perfection in this beautifully crafted classic comedy.

As there's no padding at all in OFAH it's almost essential to own it in recorded form just to pick up on all the brilliant detail, so having an entire eight-episode series in a single package is even better. This second series both begins and ends with complications involving women, opening with Rodney's dangerous liaison with a policewoman and closing with Del's infatuation with Heather, who has ambitions as an actress. Along the way, there's a bit of trouble with the Spanish police, some North Korean (sic) porcelain, a rather eventful painting job in a Chinese restaurant and generally more laughs than you can shake a Pringle sweater at.

On the DVD: the DVD comes in at a whopping 231 minutes--the whole series on one disc, which is handy--and has an episode/scene index. --Roger Thomas

Format: DVD
In 1981, the first six episodes of Only Fools And Horses were broadcast. The series was not an immediate hit with the viewing public, generating only average ratings, and the BBC could have easily decided not to give The Trotter's a further run. Instead however another series was commissioned and as with near rival Minder, the programme was a slow burner before becaming a huge success with the general public.
For the second series, a new theme tune was adopted for the programme and used for all subsequent episodes, although it is also on the first series DVD replacing the original instrumental theme by Ronnie Hazelhurst. The theme as written and sung by series creator, John Sullivan, was in part says Sullivan, used to explain the origins of the title of the programme, which had confused many viewers.
As well as the central characters Del Boy, Rodney and Grandad, familar regulars Boycie and Trigger also make their second appearances in the series. One of the best episodes in series 2 is an episode, The Losing Streak, in which the characters all gather together to play a game of poker. Card games always seem to work well in comedy ,a memorable early episode of Cheers featured a poker game involving the regulars and confidence trickster Harry The Hat. Here the cheat is Boycie, although Del may have more up his sleeve then he lets on. This episode was actually inspired by John Sullivan's dad who enjoyed gambling sessions.
Also in this series, we see The Trotter's involved in painting a restaurant, and Rodney dating to Del's horror, a Policewoman and then later deciding to take her back to the flat, containing all of Del's dodgy goods. For the first time in the programme, the Trotter's go on holiday visiting Spain.

By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 May 2008

Personally, I love some of the early episodes of 'Only Fools and Horses', which showcased a comedy show with lots of potential. True, they aren't brilliant when you compare them to later series, and the masterpieces which came in 1989 when the show went for 30 minute episodes to 50. Nevertheless, they are still thoroughly enjoyable, despite the simpler plots and lack of character development which came afterwards.

I think series two was an improvement over the first (even though I still rate it five stars), the chemistry between David Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst and the late Lennard Pearce was there from the start, and despite the fact ratings weren't initially high, I, and millions of us am so glad the BBC had the good sense to recommission it again, and again.

This DVD contains all eight episodes, including the famous 'A Touch of Glass', originally broadcast between late November to early December 1982. My personal favourite of the lot is 'The Long Legs of the Law', which sees a horrified Del at the sight of Rodney taking his latest bird home, a policewoman nonetheless!

The chance to own a copy of one of the series of Britains finest comedy's along with the Monty collection, Faulty Towers and Black Adder, should not be turned down. The characters Del Boy and Dave (Rodders) turn the actors who played them into house hold names. Even after nearly twenty years this DVD/Video will bring a smile anybodys face and at a extremely fair price this is a complete must not only for die hard Only Fools and Horses fans but for people who might not have seen the programme before.
