It's not only the scripts that made OFAH great, the actors were perfectly cast for their roles too.

I love only fools. It's my go to TV when I just don't want to concentrate as I have seen them so many times. It is timeless to a degree, Great characters and great actors. They just can't write like this anymore, it's either pretentious comedy, or repulsive vulgar stuff using shocks for laughs.

It's my go to telly for comfort and a televisual hug.....takes me back to my childhood.
Just a shame it ran too long, as the latter shows where just embarrassing :crying:

Yes it was cast perfectly but apparently Jim Broadbent was going to be cast as Del Boy...... :doh:
He made a great character though as Slater the bent copper .

He is a good actor in his own right, but would OFAH been as good? Nope!
