Yet again this Christmas we will be taking an in depth look at some of the best Christmas episodes of sitcoms from both the UK and the USA.
Today we will be looking at the Only Fools and Horses Episode – Christmas Crackers
About the Show
Summary of Plot
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. iMDB
