After the final three episodes of Only Fools And Horses when it was revived in 2001 gained a less than positive response from the press it was a surprise to see that the show's very talented writer John Sullivan had this spin off featuring much loved characters Boycie and Marlene up his sleeve.
It ends up being a nice surprise. While it was never going to match Only Fools it never really tries to and instead it becomes its own beast. The premise works, the new characters introduced are all very funny and happily the relationship between Boycie and Marlene gets fleshed out far more than would have been possible in Only Fools.
The best episodes are the ones penned by Sullivan and it was only when other writers started to contribute that the standard of the show dipped a little. However there are certainly more good episodes than average ones and this show is good fun throughout all four of it's series'.
