Arguably, the funniest episodes.
on 21 August 2006
This is the first episode of the 1996 Christmas trilogy, and one of the funniest in the series. The regulars are all on good form. The hilarious Batman and Robin sequence has already been documented in another review. This is followed up soon after by a funny chase sequence between Rodney and one of the muggers, which doesn't quite work out as planned, leaving Del Boy to be the hero of the day. There is also a hilarious dream sequence at the beginning, as Rodney has avision of the future! These Christmas specials were arguably, along with 'The Jolly Boy's Outing,' the funniest of the series, and would have ended the show on a high. I didn't think that the subsequent Christmas trilogy shown from 2001 - 2003 quite achieved the same standard. However, here's a story worth getting. Enjoy it!
