4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy, 4 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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...

Lee Hughes says:
The Only Fools and Horses Complete Series 1 - 7 Box Set [DVD only contains the episodes from series 1 to 7, but without the feature-length Christmas specials. The Christmas specials are available to buy on DVD individually.

The following two DVD boxsets actually contain the complete series 1 to 7, plus every feature-length Christmas special, and the documentary 'The Story of Only Fools and Horses' as a special feature: -
Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Collection [DVD
Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Collection [DVD] [1981 (released as part of the 30th anniversary)

Even though all episodes of Only Fools and Horses are available to buy on DVD, unfortunately they are still the edited versions. Hopefully in time, the complete collection boxset will be re-released again, containing the uncut versions.
