Kentucky fried canary
3 September 2019 | by dominic-parisSee all my reviews

One of the best of the series thanks to the brilliant script in a very familiar story of someone trying to replace a dead pet on the sly - yes, it's been done before in other shows, but they didn't have John Sullivan's genius and such a perfect cast. We are introduced to Mike Fisher, the landlord, who within two minutes of meeting Del Boy must have been double glad that he did, and another, who we would sadly never see again, Corinne, who couldn't be more displeased to see Del Boy after he mucked up her wedding to Denzil, another regular we are introduced to. We would hear of Brendan a couple of times after this episode but he was never seen again. Italian Louie was also a memorable character after having conned grandad in to buying his 'flea-bitten' canary for £45. Great mix of characters, superb twist and a win for Del Boy at the end puts this in my list of top ten OFAH episodes.
