Rango – TV Guide ranked the series number 47 on its TV Guide's 50 Worst Shows of All Time List in 2002. The Ropers – A failed spin-off of the highly successful Three's Company, this show was ranked number two on Time magazine's “Top 10 Worst TV Spin-Offs”. It also ranked #49 on TV Guide's list of “The 50 Worst Shows Ever” in 2002. The Royal Bodyguard – Just hours after its broadcast, the first episode was heavily criticised by fans of David Jason and viewers alike. Jim Shelley wrote “The Royal Bodyguard was, the BBC trumpeted, Sir David Jason's first Beeb comedy since Only Fools & Horses finished in 2002 – that was nine years ago. This fact alone should have alerted all involved to the fatal flaw at the heart of this debacle – namely that it was relying on the viewer's fondness for Del Boy. It was a classic example of blind faith in the production's star name. The prospect of seeing the 71-year-old star playing a former guardsman who had seen action in Northern Ireland and had now been appointed to the presumably prestigious position of royal bodyguard after saving the Queen's life stretched this fondness to breaking point. After about two minutes. Never mind that the plot's entire premise was stupid – that he was the incompetent former head of security at Buckingham Palace car park. The standard of the comedy was excruciating. It was blatantly designed to cash in on the appeal of characters like Inspector Clouseau and Johnny English. But the idea that Jason could play a clown as well as Peter Sellers or Rowan Atkinson was the only funny thing about it.” Several of Jason's fans also took to Twitter to comment on the show: one claimed it to be “a very poor imitation of Johnny English”.
