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.

Bollocks bollocks bollocks. He was going to be on my list and then I saw him on TV and he looked quite well :banghead:

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...

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

Oh God, I'm so thick! I will now sheepishly crawl back into the corner with my dunce's cap on! In my defence, I am a mere spring chicken and Robin's Nest was on waaaaaay before I was even born*

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