1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware, 31 Jan 2009
This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
As other reviewers have already stated, this is cut to ribbons and, as such, I would say it's pretty much a waste of money.

I'd just like to add, though, that the reviewer who states that the US version is not cut is completely wrong. I regret that I believed his review and bought the US one only to find that it is NOT complete. So, to anyone who is considering wasting money on the US box set, I just wanted to warn you before you part with your cash. Buyer beware!

I've noticed edits on the videos i own too, and these are from the 90s - Miami Twice has an added laughter track, and a couple of good jokes are taken out. I can make my peace with the music changes (although it does seem a little cheap of the bbc to not pay the royalties, if that's the reason for the the changes), but why mess around with the scenes? It irritates me enough that "offensive" material has been edited out (some of the now considered racist terms add realism to the trotter's conversations, and to remove one word can mean taking out a whole scene), but to cut gags and scenes and replace them with what was once presumably rejected material is just crazy!

of the two versions: are there more edits in the US or UK released set? or are they identical sets with identical edits?

Obviously regional coding will be different (Region 1=US / North America, Region 2=UK (Western Europe).

Doesn't matter to me since I can play DVDs from all regions.
