4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy
I had some doubts about purchasing the DVD's because there are so many negative comments about the series being ruined with vast quantities of cuts in the episodes.

Hopefully I can put some potential buyers minds at rest with the following!

Series One is identical to my BBC VHS Release from the 1990's - the only cut being the removal of Pink Floyd to...

3.0 out of 5 stars not the trotters finest moments
The first series of only fools and horses wasnt a success,in some ways its easy to see why,its a mixed bag,mostly good of course but the series looks good when you know all you need to know about the trotters but when this was released in 1981,what people saw was all that they would know so what they viewed was at face value so some of the material is a bit watery.The...

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy, 4 Nov 2010

This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
I had some doubts about purchasing the DVD's because there are so many negative comments about the series being ruined with vast quantities of cuts in the episodes.

Hopefully I can put some potential buyers minds at rest with the following!

Series One is identical to my BBC VHS Release from the 1990's - the only cut being the removal of Pink Floyd to the music in the episode "Cash and Curry" and the theme/titles changed to the well known version from Series 2-7.

I think its fair to say this does not "ruin" the Series :)

The DVD transfer seems ok - the picture quality is not outstanding but I really did not buy it to examine the pixels...

5.0 out of 5 stars Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 (1981), 6 July 2010

This whole series of Only Fools and Horses is an excellent example of British Comedy at its best. Parents out there can let their children watch it without fear of any 'bad' scenes or distasteful language.

The Series 1 was aired on TV long before my sixteen year old son was born and he watches this and the other series constantly. There is continuous laughter coming from his room and it is good to see him and his siblings enjoy something that doesn't contain gratuitous sex and bad language.

I recommend this to everyone both young and old.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic TV comedy must have., 24 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
This collection has to be in your collection, the early 'Grandad' only fools to me are the best, they are raw comedy with introductions to the main characters such as Trigger calling Rodney Dave and Rodney asking if they call Trigger-Trigger because he carries a gun "no, it's cos he looks like an horse" CLASSIC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British humor, 10 Mar 2004
This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
I`ll never forget the first time I saw Only fools and horses on the telly. It was about 1988 when BBC could be viewed for the first time in the Netherlands. I nearly wet my pants when I watched the Cash and Curry show...
Now I try to collect all the DVD`s!!! I Guess there is al lot of the Trotters in all of us...
Great DVD, great performances of David Jason and his team. I am really glad the series is now on DVD and can be preserved for my children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series, 17 July 2003
This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
I recently started my Only Fools and Horses dvd collection about 6 months ago and have now got all of the 11 dvds. This one was the first of the 11 which i bought and i must say how great it is. I had never seen the first series really so it was a new series to me. It has six episodes which are all enjoyable and bring back alot of memories to ofah fans so this one is a must have to people who have loved the adventures of Del boy and the rest of the Trotter clan.
