Not forgetting Citizen Smith. I grew up in Tooting at the time the series was being made and shown on TV.
Even played 5-a-side football against the TPF when they came to open our school fete

It's always funny until someone gets hurt, and then it's hilarious.

OFAH should have ended with the finally-becoming-millionaires episode, it was just tiresome after that.

I did quite enjoy the prequel though - unlike some, I wasn't expecting it to be more of the same. Didn't like Rodney playing his own father - decent performance from Nick Lyndhurst, but too distracting.

One of his best parts I thought.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

I remember watching him in Robin's Nest when I was a kid. I really thought he had one arm. Didn't occur to me until a few years later that he was the same actor in Fawlty Towers

I think the joke was the character that washed dishes and only had one arm.
