The second series of John Sullivan's Peckham-based comedy, featuring the market trading activities of Del and Rodney Trotter. The episodes are: 'The Long Legs of the Law', 'Ashes to Ashes', 'A Losing Streak', 'No Greater Love', 'The Yellow Peril', 'It Never Rains', 'A Touch of Glass' and 'Diamonds are for Heather'.
Although at first glance a series about a family of lovable spivs who get into endless scrapes as they duck and dive their way through life must have sounded like a complete non-starter, but John Sullivan's quickfire scripts for Only Fools and Horses and the spot-on performances by Jason (Del), Lyndhurst (Rodney) and Pierce (Grandad) combine to perfection in this beautifully crafted classic comedy.
As there's no padding at all in OFAH it's almost essential to own it in recorded form just to pick up on all the brilliant detail, so having an entire eight-episode series in a single package is even better. This second series both begins and ends with complications involving women, opening with Rodney's dangerous liaison with a policewoman and closing with Del's infatuation with Heather, who has ambitions as an actress. Along the way, there's a bit of trouble with the Spanish police, some North Korean (sic) porcelain, a rather eventful painting job in a Chinese restaurant and generally more laughs than you can shake a Pringle sweater at.
On the DVD: the DVD comes in at a whopping 231 minutes--the whole series on one disc, which is handy--and has an episode/scene index. --Roger Thomas

For the second series, a new theme tune was adopted for the programme and used for all subsequent episodes, although it is also on the first series DVD replacing the original instrumental theme by Ronnie Hazelhurst. The theme as written and sung by series creator, John Sullivan, was in part says Sullivan, used to explain the origins of the title of the programme, which had confused many viewers.
As well as the central characters Del Boy, Rodney and Grandad, familar regulars Boycie and Trigger also make their second appearances in the series. One of the best episodes in series 2 is an episode, The Losing Streak, in which the characters all gather together to play a game of poker. Card games always seem to work well in comedy ,a memorable early episode of Cheers featured a poker game involving the regulars and confidence trickster Harry The Hat. Here the cheat is Boycie, although Del may have more up his sleeve then he lets on. This episode was actually inspired by John Sullivan's dad who enjoyed gambling sessions.
Also in this series, we see The Trotter's involved in painting a restaurant, and Rodney dating to Del's horror, a Policewoman and then later deciding to take her back to the flat, containing all of Del's dodgy goods. For the first time in the programme, the Trotter's go on holiday visiting Spain.Read more ›
We see Del Boy's classic buddies Trigger and Boycie share a episode together for the first time,we see both brothers fall in love,we see Granddad arrested and we see one of televisions most famous moments a priceless chandelier crashing to the ground along with genuine moments of sadness which never really was tried in sitcoms and Only Fools done it many times very well.
The Long Legs Of The Law-'Rodney upsets Del and Granddad when he announces his girlfriend Sandra is a policewoman and after inviting her to the flat Del has to try and stop her seeing his dodgy gear that's all round the flat but has she seen it already'.This is the strongest first episode of the first three series and love how just from getting a girlfriend Rodney puts Del Boys whole way of living under threat.We also see the first appearance of Sid.Funniest moments include Del and Rodders talking in the cafe 'see ICI's dropped a point,yeah Chelsea dropped 3 on Saturday' or Del going into great detail of what he had at the cafe for breakfast or Rodney trying to chat up the policewoman when she is stopping a fight or Del and Granddad getting in a state when Rodney brings Sandra back to the flat or Del telling Rodney to think before he acts before the plonker shows Sandra that they have three cases of knocked off booze.A fabulous start to series two.5 stars out of 5.Read more ›
