tv that you cant avoid,
This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 3  [DVD]  (DVD)
Series three of the sublime series could indeed have rested on its laurels and tripped down the same avenues and kept things going down the same line but what series three gave us was the team on top of their game,the actors had become their characters in some ways here and it looks like everyone is having genuine fun,and while this series isnt quite a five star affair,it is very happy in the company of 4.5 out of 5.
The series starts off with 'homesick' where rodney joins the housing commission and as it happens grandad gets ill and the need to move out of nelson mandela house,but is all as it seems,knowing the trotters,proably not.Other classic moments include slater arresting the family in connection with stealing a microwave and and the classic episode where the family paint denzels home while a budgie gets involved as well.There is a lull in some ways with del and rodneys father when he returns but the trotters soon find a way to get rid of a man who left them when they were young to fend for themselves.Series three is the series that really launched the series into classic status and from here on in there was no complaints left to point the shows way.
