Don't buy it!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
So disappointing, huge cuts, laughter tracks added, just ruined it for me. So annoyed while watching late one night went to the US site and bought the whole thing again, some edits still , not all the original music, but the Royal Flush seems pretty much intact which was decimated in this version. etc. Just beware you will need an NTSC player.

Thanks a lot. I am after a complete set of OFAH and think I will go for the American edition after reading other people's comments and your review here. It only has 18 discs though, which is interesting. Could you please quickly confirm that every episode and special is present? Thanks.

I am from America and have heard that there are not as many cuts and edits as in the British version . Everything is there on the 18 discs however .
For those interested in having a player which plays "ALL REGIONS" and not pay one of those Sellers who claims to have a 'converted player' a very high price for it , you can purchase players which can be re-programmed to play all regions using the remote control . It takes about 1 minute to do . I have purchased a player and done this as I live in America . Look at the American Amazon and read about the Philips Model # 5140 . It can be re-programmed this way . I did it . It will also play on both NTSC and PAL TVs . This is not the only player which can be done this way , but I only use it as an example because there is a review by one person which has step by step instructions as to how to use the remote control to re-program the player . There are many brands which can be done this way . The instructions for one brand will be different than another brand . You may already have one which can be re-programmed . Use a search engine such as Google and type in a phrase such as " how to hack a DVD player to play all regions " . There are many sites which are dedicated to this . You never need to pay any seller a high price for selling you a so-called "All Region" player when you can do exactly what they have done and buy it at regular price . Not all players can be done this way and none advertise this . This process has been 'hacked' by very smart people who dedicate themselves to saving people money . I suppose that the simple fact that they figure this out on their own is enough for them . There is no charge for the information and there are dozens of players which can be re-programmed .
I hope this saves you a lot of money as it did me . I buy British Comedies and some Drama almost exclusively now . The reason; NO ONE DOES COMEDY LIKE THE BRITISH DO COMEDY !!!!!!!
