From Amazon.co.uk

You'll need no incentive to watch Series 6 of Only Fools and Horses beyond the knowledge that the very first episode of the six herein is the one in which Del takes that legendary pratfall when leaning against a non-existent bar counter. This is without doubt one of the greatest moments in British TV comedy.

Other than that, what do we get? Well, this is the series in which Rodney first takes up with Cassandra. Gwyneth Strong's deftly underplayed, near-deadpan approach to the role of Rodney's soulmate is perhaps one of the most underrated elements in the show's entire run, even if the writers rather ran out of things to do with her almost at once. Ironically, then, despite her introduction, this isn't the strongest of Only Fools collections. Nevertheless, there are enough gems to remind you just why this show was such a success, among them the Spanish holiday episode in which Rodney has to pretend to be 14 and the propane-filled blow-up dolls episode, which really doesn't need a punchline.

On the DVD: Only Fools and Horses, Series 6 two-disc set is presented in standard TV 4:3 ratio, with no special features--unless you count the injunctions on each disc's menu to insert the other disc if you want to watch the other episodes, "... you plonker!". --Roger Thomas

Product Description

Starring: David Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Buster Merryfield Yuppy Love - While Del's poised to take advantage of 80s fever, Rodney's on the pull with a classy new bird called Cassandra. Danger UXD - Del takes free delivery of 50 dolls but 'Lusty Linda' and 'Erotic Estelle' aren't exactly what he had in mind. Chain Gang - Del head's the newly founded Peckham gold-buying consortium and all goes smoothly until Arnie, the retired jeweller, is taken ill... The Unlucky Winner Is - Rodney wins a holiday and has to pretend he is 15! Sickness and Wealth - Even though he's convinced he's suffering from PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), Del's not too keen on a visit to the dreaded 'D' word. Little Problems - Things are looking up for Rodders but the Driscoll brothers are keen to 'take care' of Del if he can't raise two grand sharpish. Aspect Ratio: 4:3

4.0 out of 5 stars Only Fools and Horses Finest Hour(s) 28 April 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Series 6 sees of this oft repeated series definitely was the highspot with the shows becoming 50 minutes with stronger storylines, the introduction of Cassandra as Rodney's love interest (the series finishes with their wedding), the relaunch of Del as a Yuppie and some magic TV moments that live long in the memory after the tape has been returned to its nice presentation box. (Remember Del Boy leaning against the non existent bar - the exploding inflatable dolls - Rodney masquerading as a 14 year old competition winner in Majorca?). Performances and production are faultless - even in minor roles and this will be on the shopping list of fans and Majorca pub owners where the series seems to be permanently on display. Replace those worn out taped from TV copies with this ace set!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far and away the best of all the series 21 Aug 2003
Format:DVD
This is when Only Fools and Horses really stepped up a gear (1989). The episodes went from 30 minute slots to 50 minutes, and the situations that the two brothers plus their Uncle Albert found themselves in became priceless.

Yuppy Love has Rodney meeting Cassandra for the first time and Del falling over in the wine-bar (yep, it's that one). Danger UXD is about a dodgy consignment of blow-up dolls that fell off the back of Denzil's lorry. Chain Gang has all the regulars (Trigger, Boycie, Mike) plus our three heroes falling for a con-trick from an ex-jeweller. The Unlucky Winner Is... has to be one of the funniest TV comedy moments ever. Rodney wins a trip to Spain by entering a painting competition ("Del, I never entered this competition"), but as the painting was done when he was 14, he has to go skateboarding with the other members of the Groovy Gang while Del and Cassandra pretend to be his doting parents. Sickness and Wealth sees Del become ill through his yuppy lifestyle ("Lunch is for Wimps"), and Elsie Partridge host a seance. And the final episode, Little Problems, has Rodney marrying Cassandra whilst Del gets beaten up by the Driscoll Brothers. The extra twenty minutes per episode suddenly meant the scripts could fit a lot more in. Each episode seems to include far better stories than the half-hour slots we were used to. It didn't get better than this...

3.0 out of 5 stars They cut it! 23 Sep 2003
By RWilson
Format:DVD
Only Fools And Horses is the best comedy that was ever created. This series is perhaps the best and every episode is a classic! All six episodes are spread over two DVDs (no double-sided disc, yay!)
One thing that *really* spoiled it for me is that they added a really long advert introduction to the first DVD and cut some footage from the first episode "Yuppy Love". It is all from the scene when they're in the night club and they cut some exchanges between Casandra and Rodney and some footage between Mickey and Jevon. It no longer flows properly now and that is why I gave it 3 stars otherwise I would give it 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only Fools And Horses - Series Six 16 July 2003
Format:DVD
As the final serious of a classic british comedy dawns upon us, John Sullivan (creator and genius) fixes up a true masterpiece in this series. It begins with 'YUPPY LOVE', a milestone in the fact it features the first meeting of Rodney and Cassandra. This is followed by 'DANGER UXD', which includes the best television moment in british history when Del-Boy activates an inflatable sex toy, i am positive this will have you in stitches. 'CHAIN GANG' is a story of Derek's chance to accept 250 gold chains from their deceased owner. Then comes my personal favourite ever episode, 'THE UNLUCKY WINNER IS...', in which Rodney wins a painting competition - problem being that, because it was painted 10 years ago, with 'age 14' on the back, he is accepted into the kids club, and has to fake being an oversized 14 year old in order for Del and Cassandra to remain on holiday. The final episodes, 'SICKNESS AND WEALTH' and 'LITTLE PROBLEMS' see Del meeting his fear of doctors and Rodney and Cassandra tying the knot, just five episodes after they first met. Overall I recommend this to any Only Fools fan as a must have, roll on September 22nd!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 'classic' series. 8 Dec 2007
By Reaper
Format:DVD
Any 'Fools' fan would tell you that Series Six is where the programme was at its height. There are also a lot of changes. One is where the programme's format shifts to the fifty minute episode as opposed to the thirty minutes ('Sickness and Wealth' is actually fifty-five minutes). Another change is Rodney meeting the love of his life- Cassandra and marrying her at the end of this series. Classic moments include:

Del falls throught the bar (Yuppy Love); the inflatable dolls (Danger UXD); the elaborate con trick (Chain Gang); Rodney has to act fourteen to keep a holiday he has won (The Unlucky Winner Is...); the Nag's Head regulars have a seance (Sickness and Wealth) and Rodney gets married.

Overall, a spectactular series with every episode containing at least one notable moment, which is somewhat absent in the next series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Classic series ruined by no frills DVD release 16 Dec 2006
By M. D. P. Meechan VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
As other reviewers have noted, series 6 of Only Fools and Horses saw the episodes increase in length, which greatly benefitted the show, as it allowed writer John Sullivan to craft longer, more-complex plots, as well as fit in some much needed character development. As loveable as Del and Rodders were, in five series and several specials they had largely stayed the same, and the strain of keeping the show fresh was particularly evident in series 5, which could have been the final curtain for the show (David Jason was considering leaving the show at this point). Series 6 saw storylines developed, rather than the self-contained episodes we had grown familiar with, and successfully transplanted real life into sitcom, most notably Del's attempts to be recognised as a yuppie. There are many standout moments, including the seance in Sickness and Wealth; the propane-filled inflatable dolls coming alive in Danger UXD; and Del's oft-repeated pratfall through the bar in Yuppie Love. In terms of character development, the whole episode involving Rodney's wedding shows how pivotal the relationship between the two brothers was to the show's success.

Now the negative. This series, not to mention the other 6 and various specials, have been treated shamefully on DVD. Considering how popular Only Fools is, and the amount of effort put into producing sterling DVD packages for shows like Red Dwarf, its amazing that the DVD releases for Only Fools have few, if any, extra features. The show could have benefitted tremendously from some documentaries or commentaries, even one or two interviews with the stars of the show would have sufficed. My advice would be to avoid buying this series on DVD and just catch them on UK Gold instead, as although the episodes themselves are brilliant, the DVD releases are no frills and don't justify their price tags.
