OFAH - But not at its Best
on 27 November 2002
This episode is OK but not great. It was the first shown after a break of five years and saw the Trotter's loose the fortune they had got from selling an antique marine time keeping pocket watch in the last of the 1996 trilogy (time on our hands). I know that many die hard fans felt that this should never have been filmed, and I was among them at the time - although my view has changed a little since.
In this Xmas special of the actors seem a little out of touch with their characters after the long break. David Jason as always is fantastic and the story line is amusing if not a little weak. There are two more episodes to be screened this Christmas and I hope they are an improvement on If They Could See Us Now.
Having said all that, Only Fools and Horses is at best sheer brilliance, and at worst very entertaining. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who has watched and enjoyed previous series or Xmas OFAH's specials.
