Wlf is going on are they taking liberty now the show creator has died? John Leguizamo as del boy, Dustin Ybarra is rodney trotter and Christopher Lloyd is playing grandad...The show will either be great like the origional or a huge disaster fingers crossed everything comes together but at the moment the only person that seems to fit the role is Christopher Lloyd what do you guys think?

Well I consider Only Fools and Horses as my all time favourite comedy but I have to admit I'm not too pleased a new, modern day version is being created here. They ended on a high and are still considered as one of the all time greats - It should be left at that in my opinion. If someone wants to make a new show, think of something new, don't go recreating something from the past just because it happened to be successful then. Be creative, come up with your own idea etc.

The fact that it's American as well is, and I certainly don't mean to offend you Americans out there, an utter disappointment. Our comedies are completely different you see, we seem to find different thing's funny especially when it comes to the way shows are made. Because of this the new Only Fools and Horses is also going to be completely different as well - That's a big shame because it may have the same name.. but it's certainly not the same Only Fools and Horses.

I just hope they don't go airing the American episodes over here in the UK as well, although I'm sure if they do it'll receive the same kind of attention the American version of Top gear seemed to receive, lol.


All in all I think they're making a big mistake here. And I just hope this doesn't ruin the reputation of something really great.

I am from the UK.
I enjoy the American Office more than the English Office.

Now that said, Only Fools and Horses will never grace my TV screen as the American Version... No no no.

Well Steptoe and Son translated well in the early 70s in the US as Sanford and Son so...

Yeah, I also love the US version of The Office. Tried watching our version but, I dunno.....never found it funny. Never found Ricky Gervais funny come to think of it.

Boyce will be played by Andy Garcia and Trig will be played by Keanu Reeves. (Hello dave).

I don't think that would work too well either. Nurse Gladys would likely be transformed from a robust woman you'd like to wrestle in mud with to a skinny little thing and the references to Granvilles hungarian roots probably missed out altogether.

Tell you what I miss ..In Loving Memory.

This would be a travesty if it happened!! Fools and Horses is too South London specific! Looking forward to the US take on the 'Inbtweeners'.....Lovely Jubly
