So let's talk about the cuts: As far as I can tell the only episodes that have SERIOUSLY been actually cut are "The Jolly Boys Outing" and "Miami Twice". Other than those two I can't say I really noticed any others. Contrary to what has been written - bad language has NOT been cut and neither has some of the more cruder humour. It seems that a lot of people who've written reviews haven't actually watched the set.
I googled what cuts had been made to the DVD set - and watched a lot of the episodes expecting a cut to come up... and it didn't! I really wonder where a lot of this information has come from.
In most cases when the rights haven't been available for music - it has been replaced with a similar sounding bit of music (Jaws and The Omen are replaced with sinister cues that get the same point across) and original songs have been replaced with cover versions (for example the version of "Our House" at the end of "Time On Our Hands"). Yeah OK - it's not the ideal situation but it could have been a lot worse! The comedy is not lost.
Generally speaking from what I can tell a majority of the episodes are uncut and I can tell you categorically that the second series has absolutely no cuts whatsoever.
With this being the case I believe it's perfectly reasonable to purchase this item at the current knock down price.Read more ›
If you have the time tape the episodes off UKGold. I still wait for the genuine complete collection.
*Update* In memory of John Sullivan, I've now re-rated this from 2 stars to 5. A comedy that will provide laughter to generations of people to come, what a legacy to leave. I just hope that should any tribute episodes be released in the future then they take onboard some of the editing issues, and ensure they are released the way John Sullivan wrote them, that would be the perfect epitaph.
**An updated er update** And so now almost five years after the first 'complete collection' was released, we now have a second 'complete collection', both of which are sadly 'incomplete'. To mark the 30th anniversary of the first broadcast of 'Only Fools' you'd have thought some effort would have been put into adding some extra morsels to tempt those who bought the first complete collection into forking out for the second. But no.Read more ›
On the editing and cutting there are some episodes that have in my view mistakenly been tampered with references to Princess Diana gone in one episode, some soundtracks from the original broadcast have been changed (evidently due to licensing restrictions for the DVD release) in most cases this doesn't make a huge difference but expert Only Fools and Horses fans will notice the changes.
Miami Twice has had quite a few cuts though as has A Royal Flush some lines are gone and laughter tracks added, and the Jolly Boy's outing has sadly had an entire sequence removed in the nightclub when the song "Just the Way You Are" was being performed this does impact the episode quite significantly in my view. In other area some episodes have had no cuts at all so it's not likely to ruin the experience. There is a complete list of edits and cuts via Wikipedia if you wish to investigate this more
Onto the series despite this negative points above remains a true British comedy classic in every sense of the word. Rarely has a series been aired that connects with the public following the struggles of the Trotters, their misguided efforts and dealings. But always in a way which evokes fondness for both the talented cast and script. it is fair to say some episodes are stronger than others, a few of my favourite ones:
"A Touch of Glass": This episode is one of the classic comedy moments when grandad hits the wrong chandelier causing it to crash to the floor broken and smashed, I still remember the room erupting in laughter after this.Read more ›
