Dodgy Video Disc it most certainly ain't. I have series 1-3 and 5 on video and now series 4 which this DVD is. Out of the 5 series this one is one of the best. It features the classic episodes where they boys look after Boycies dog for a while and Uncle Albert gets frisky. Also the episode where they chase after a rare butterfly and Rodney has to get in the pond after it. Yep theres plenty of rib ticklers in this series and to say theres no features then someones telling you porkies Rodney. Why, well the episodes are chaptered and you can go straight to you favorite scenes. But other than that theres nowt else. So please BBC give us some out-takes etc and other stuff.

I am not a huge fan of Series Four, in which I think is the worst series of 'Fools.' It may be unfair of me because it did follow the immaculate Series Three but I feel it did not have the same magic. Let's be abundantantly clear, I still love Series Four and I will still rate it of five stars because I would betray the show that has given me such pleasure and there are still plenty of laugh out loud moments. This series does introduce Albert and Marlene.

Moments in this series include: Rodney dating an attractive girl who Del thinks is his daughter (Happy Returns); Grandad's funeral (Strained Relations); Albert falling through the Nag's Head cellar (Hole in One); Rodney joins a rock band (It's Only Rock and Roll); Del volunteers to look after Boycie and Marlene's puppy (Sleeping Dogs Lie); Rodney places a bet with Mickey Pearce (Watching the Girls Go By) and Rodney chases after a butterfly (As One Door Closes).

Overall, a slightly (only marginal) lacklusture series with the best episode from this year being 'To Hull and Back' which is not included on this DVD.

This is a great Series and probably one of my faves out of them. Rodeny is at his best in these, young and dopey.
The series show Rodney pulling a bird, Playing in a band that Del is the "Manager" of. Uncle Albert tries to chip in when the money is low and like normal it doesnt come to a happy ending.
They look after Boycies dog and it as normal goes pear shaped.
This is a must for all Only Fools fans.

'Only Fools and Horses' was now on an impressive forth series in 1985, and John Sullivan's scripts were just getting better.

With the unexpected death of Lennard Pearce, Granddad was written out of the series and given a good send off, with a laugh at the end of the funeral mixed in with what was a genuinely moving scene. We might have lost a great character, but we gained one with the arrival of forgotten War veteran Uncle Albert, played by the now late Buster Merryfield. Albert made his debut in the second episode ('Strained Relations') of the series, and Boycie's brassy wife Marlene was also introduced in the fifth ('Sleeping Doors Lie'). She had been mentioned before, but it wasn't until now that actress Sue Holderness took on the role on screen.

'Only Fools' remains my all time favourite British sitcom, and one that I can easily watch repeatedly without tiring myself. I always know what's coming, but it's still so funny. Like the rest of these DVDs, there are no extras, this is a shame granted, but it's episodes like this that first got us hooked on the programme, and as long as there on here, it's only the eps that we really need no?

series 4 of the series was released in 1985 and brought us uncle albert for the first time as a replacement of sorts for grandad who died prior to the filming of this and the show also acknowledges this by having a funeral for him in the second episode,the show could easily have grandad with another grandad but respect was shown for actor lennard pearce,and when he died the character died,so grandads brother albert showed up for the funeral and ended up staying with the family.

Series four has some classic moments such as when the family look after boycies dog and mess it up and albert has to go to hospital as a result,del thinking he is the father to the girl that rodney is dating is another gem and del managing the music band that rodney is in is yet again another classic.

The series final episode 'as one door closes' is a bit hit and miss but from here the show grew from strength to strength and alberts character was a man that filled grandads shoes brilliantly,essential in as much as all only fools releases are.

I have got the first three series DVDs of Only Fools and Horses and I laughed through them again, after viewing them countless times before. This is classic British comedy that will always make you laugh. However I am getting increasingly upset about the lack of extras included on the disc. The "Father Ted" DVD shows us that we can even have an audio commentry included in a sit-com.
It must be seen as a warning to people who buy this DVD that you are only getting a video quality picture, just one thats more durable than standard VHS.
Still, all in all, a great DVD due more to the basic content than any extras and still a worthy purchase for any die hard fans.
