    i thought it was awful and has done no favours to the only fools and horses legacy lets all face it when they made del boy and rodders millionaires that should of been it but nope they have tried to cash in on extra episodes and spin offs and last nights was as unfunny as it gets , i've tried to look at it like they have tried to make it more of a drama with no laughter track and subtle humour and a perverted cinema manager than a full on comedy but why would they do that the people are the same just younger with new characters like jumbo , and albee littlewood they could of done so much more with people expecting a comedy that just didn't happen

    Absolute Rubbish

    I liked it, bits of it linked in well to only fools and horses. made sense, very good episode.
    Don't know why everyone is saying it bad, it was never going to be as good/like only fools and horses

    continuity wise it was awesome but that was as far as it goes i'm a huge fan of OFAH and know all the characters very well even all the ones that are only mentioned in OFAH but never seen

    gave it 45 minutes and then gave up-the script was beyond embarrassing-"put on johnny ray" "yes put on johnny ray" "why should I put on johnny ray" "cos he likes johnny ray" "yes I like johnny ray" etc etc etc-UTTER DRIVEL!

    yep i was cringing at that myself ..... awful

    the adverts for it didn't inspire me - so decided to give it a miss

    I loved every minute of it, it made such a pleasant change from the usual American dross that seems to fill most channels.


    Well done to the BBC.:thumbsup:

    What 'American dross' are you referring to?

    For those who didn't like it - this poster exemplifies why it will probably get commissioned whilst The Wire is put in a similar timeslot to the ones Seinfeld and Larry Sanders got.

    Oh, and Pulling got cancelled whilst My Family is up to series 7 or 8.

    I enjoyed it, I thought it was good because it showed you the very beginning, and they were always refering to those times during the series so it linked in well.

    Why does every misc thread turn into an argument rather than a simple discussion?

    Every programme on the telly is liked / disliked.


    Neither are right, neither are wrong. Get over it.

    ****ing ***** :x

    Discussion, not argument.:thumbsup:

    Adults are able to debate the merits of different programmes:thumbsup:

    So you think The Sopranos, Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, House, The Wire and Lost are all dross?

    Granted, they aren't Two Packets of Lager.... but the acting ain't bad:roll:

    Something like Rome must have you very confused then.:-D

    Enjoyed it,pleasently suprised.

    Not as good as the original of course a true classic

    I enjoyed it, linked well to OFAH. Didn't find it as funny as I thought I would. Best thing I've seen on telly since ]empire of the seas last week

    I daresay the same applies to this country.

    But America does tend to make some quality shows and you're denying yourself some real 'viewing pleasure'.:thumbsup:

    To each his / her own as they say, I cannot stomach any of it.

    utter dross and 30 mins of my life I'll never get back but should've known after all ofah hasn't been funny since the early nineties. anyway the phrase flogging a dead horse springs to mind(pun intended and the bbc comedy dept can have that one on me)

    I enjoyed it, not bothered what anyone else thinks

    First half bad, second half really good. If you switched off half way then watch it on iplayer.

    Granted it wasn't funny but it was a good story and second half well done. Woul've made a good film but I guess there's more to come. They should probably leave it as it is now.

    i thought it was terrible i turned off at 10pm to watch the news couldn't stomach the last 30mins or so
