Trivia

Once, when David Jason went to Wimbledon, in the front row was Jack Nicholson. Jason assumed Nicholson would get all the attention, but instead he did. Jason suspected that because Nicholson was the bigger star was ironically the reason why he didn't get more attention, because they were more intimidated by him than Jason, who was more approachable because of his roles as Pop Larkin or Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses....

Perrrrfec!
19 January 1999 | by (Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

If there was ever a television family that I would want to be a member of, the Larkin Clan would be it. Led by Pop Larkin (David Jason), a man of unquenchable good nature who does not believe in paying taxes but is more than generous with his money (which he seems to fall backward into), they make Kent seem like the modern day garden of eden. Half of the scenes in any particular episode involve either eating or food preparation. The family liquor cabinet resembles a shrine and plays "What do you do with a drunken sailor?" each time it is opened (a frequent event).

The luckiest character of all is the tax man who is sent to find out why Pop has never paid taxes and ends up never leaving. If you knew why, you'd probably be as jealous as I am. In the frequent words of Pop Larkin...Perrrrfec!
