Goofs

In several of the first two series of 'OF', studio space can be seen above where the house ceiling should be. Mosty wide up-facing shots, but also in some scenes where the camera pans fast. 'OE' is filmed on a sound stage, not in the actual house shown as the exterior. See more »

Quotes

Van West: [Angrily confronting Cheryl about her affair with Judd] You know what? I won't stay for tea. In fact, you can count me out of every dinner, whilst he's here.
Cheryl West: Get over yourself, Jethro!
Van West: Do you have any idea of what people think? What they're saying?

.. hands-down.. just one all time best
29 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Totally 'choice'... this is an absolutely awesome TV series... outrageousfortune.co.nz/ ... One hundred and seven episodes that are near great as you can possibly get. There are so many staggeringly marvelous performances you could run down the list, close your eyes and pick any and all to bestow the highest praise. But it is in fact the characterization of the three West women.. binged.it/10yCW04 .. for the entire six season series that will captivate and take your breath away.. (Siobhan is just flat-out incredible.. bit.ly/1hjNO81 ..) You'll smile, laugh, and be emotionally moved again and again with 'OF.' There are no flaws... just TV comedy/ drama perfection.
