Was just looking at this

Been £39.99 for a good year or so now. In fact, it's been as low as £37.99 on occasion.

I know this a reduction versus the RRP but FFS, this series is over 20 years old and £5 a season doesn't seem very hot in the light of everything else going on right now. I think the Beeb had better learn to tighten its belt and start flogging old shows at much more realistic prices.

They've been cut to bits too 'cos they're too tight to pay royalties on music.

I'm out:p

I got my complete collection of OFAH from amazon.com (the American site). At least the shows aren't edited to within an inch of their lives then and it includes the specials too.

This Series 1-7 set doesn't have the specials- another £45 or so and then you're at the American price. You obviously will need a multi region dvd player then though...

there were, there is a load of specials that aren't included in this set

i'd rather not buy this as the episodes are edited i'm gutted. i'll probably try for the NTSC unedited one

Well why not start at the very beginning - it's a very good place to start.

If you think this is a good deal for a badly-edited edition of a 20+ year old series then I think you are the fool squire:p

time doesnt do anything to a classic rather than make it a classic .

Ive heard from my mate the complete box set including the xmas special etc are full of edits. One expisode has had like 20 mins ripped from it. What a joke! Ive heard even music which was in the originals has been removed and replaced with unknown music.

I wont be buying this until the BBC bring out a proper version.

You've totally missed the point:p

amazon.co.uk/Onl…8-1

Cheapest is £70 from Tesco.

It's still hacked to bits and somewhat overpriced too

this is the only COMPLETE collection and UNEDITED (apart from the Miami Vice special which is amalgamated into one episode i think)

As one of the reviews says:

"The only episodes of only fools and horses this set doesn't contain are a few short one off's:

Christmas Trees
Licensed to Drill
White Mice
Royal Variety Show
The Robin Flies at Dawn
Comic Relief Special

All the specials such as Hull and Back, Dates, The Frog's Legacy, Royal Flush, Rodney Come Home, Jolly Boys Outing etc are included.

I nearly bought the English version untill I read the reviews and found that a lot of scenes are cut. The only scenes from The American set that are cut are in Jolly Boys Outing when Del and Rodney are eating scampi at the Mardi Gras club and there's a singer singing 'just the way you are'. This was cut due to contractual reasons.

Also in Watching the Girls Go By, the scene when Yvonne sings to del badly and del says 'Gordon Bennett, that's my bloody earhole' is cut.

Also Miami Twice is the movie version in this set (which I wasn't too fussed about)

Overall I'm really glad I got this set because the English has so many cuts because of words the BBC think people might get offended about. Plus it's a lot cheaper than the english set.

Even though you need to wait for a couple of weeks for it to be delivered (if you're in england) it is definately worth it. If you are from england and you're wondering which set to get, don't bother with the english one, if you don't mind waiting a few weeks buy the American DVD set.

It's probably as complete as you can get right now but it's pretty expensive and you'll get hit for customs and postage too unfortunately.

Was £72 inc postage...don't know about customs yet as hasn't arrived...so the same price as the UK 1-7 plus specials but its unedited so depends on how much you want to see them how they were! N.b. i got mine when the price was $117

got billed £19.44 customs so thats £72 i paid inc postage plus the £19.44 = £91.44 for all the unedited episodes = :-D

However, its not at that price at the moment plus the US $ is strongish so best wait a while or surf ebay.com
Either way...that UK collection series 1-7 isn't that hot a deal IMO...i do already have that exact boxset in fact if anyone wants to buy it from me!
