I know, no VS threads right? Well, this is actually a legitimate question and not music related. I bought myself a Christmas gift last year (sad but whatever) that was the Only Fools and Horses Boxset so I started watching it episode by episode. Before I watched various episodes, enough to know the general lives of the characters but I had always preferred Uncle Albert. I didn't even know how he came about and whatever happened to Grandad.
Anyway, it struck me when Grandad actually died halfway through Series 4 (not sure if that was really the case in real life that they simply incorporated into the storyline). After watching a few episodes with Uncle Albert in (his debut into the series), I've got to say I think I prefer Grandad and I don't know why I didn't before.

Anyway, poll coming:

Yeah, I've always thought I preferred Uncle Albert but I'm in the middle of watching the whole boxset (on Series 4 at the moment of 7 excluding the Christmas and Movies Selection) and I'm beginning to miss Grandad in place of Uncle Albert.

This show was glorious. But I rarely managed to catch it and someday it just vanished. 'Twas a sad day for humanity indeed.

Yeah, that really was the case in real life. They were in the middle of filming a season 4 and he died. John Sullivan then wrote in 'Strained Relations' to say goodbye to the character, aswell as bring Albert in. That was something like 2 weeks after Lennard Pearce's actual funeral.

As for who I prefer, I'd probably say Uncle Albert, but only marginally. I think it's just because Albert was in the show longer, so the audience got to know him a lot better. They were both brilliant characters, and both actors were perfect for thier roles.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

That's actually pretty shocking.

I meant I prefer Albert and that he is dumber than Grandad.

I thought this was going to be Festivus related. Feats of strength, and all that... I am sorely mistaken...
