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

Green Green Grass was a pile of shit and Only Fools and Horses became rather dull after the 49 billionth repeat on Dave.

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.

When I was a kid I never got the joke about him being a one-armed washer-upper in 'Robin's Nest' (oooh, a chance to mention Richard O'Sullivan!). I think I finally twigged about, umm, three years ago...

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 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.
