Storyline

Rodney has ran out of yuletide cheer, as the annual routing of the Trotter festivities are wearing thin. Burnt turkey, charred Christmas pudding, the same old things on television, and nothing but a book lent to him by Mickey Pierce: 'Body Language: The Lost Art.' When Grandad puts on his glad rags and heads to the OAPs' party at the community centre, the Trotter boys head to The Monte Carlo Club. Rodney puts his new-found knowledge of the unspoken language of love to use, but Del Boy has other ideas. As the brothers argue over who's technique is best, the objects of their affections are whisked away from under their noses. Written by Rune Thandy

A So-So Episode
17 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Christmas Crackers" has absolutely no clear plot but is only a series of different sketches and situations that include: Grandad's cooking, Destruction of the chicken, Antibiotics, How to seduce a lady and others. Now some of them are amusing but neither are funny and i just chuckled during a few moments.

John Sullivan's script is okay and some of the one-liners are pretty well- written but it's just more like a part of Red Nose Day special than an episode of an on-going OFAH season. Acting is perfect and the directing is great too.

I have seen "CC" a few times and i enjoy seeing it a few times a year but it isn't brilliant.

Rating of season ONE: 6/10 (It doesn't work very well as the characters and scripts are still in development)
