    Legs

    Needless to say that John Cleese is immortal in it. He caused me pain in the belly when I first saw him as the owner of the hotel.  He used his long legs in a hilarious Chaplinesque way to pace neurotically through the lobby, the dining room, the lobby...  Fawlty...

    Cult Classic

      I love British Comedies and one of my all time favorites is "Fawlty Towers ". It is simply brilliant. I love Basil Fawlty, his wife Sybil, Manuel and Polly and all the guests of Fawlty Towers, or is it Fatty Owls or Flowery Twats ? I have all 12 episodes, and every...

    Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction - Attack Of The Trip Advisors

    I've heard tell that Fawlty Towers is based on real experience. I can well believe that. On a recent TV documentary 'Attack Of The Trip Advisors', which investigated the way in which hotels were attacked through the medium of the Trip Advisor website, with a view to finding out...

    Fawlty Towers Is The Bomb!

    It has to be one of the all time funniest shows on television. How on earth Manuel puts up with Basil as his boss I will never know! Qe! The love-hate between Basil & Sybil is hilarious.

    "The Germans"

    Of all the episodes of Fawlty Towers; I think that "The Germans" is the funniest. A moose head falls on Basil & he wakes up in the hospital next to his wife, who's there for minor foot surgery. With his head in bandages, he "escapes" from the hospital, just in time to greet some...

    A Classic

    Great characters, great setting, great plots. Classic scenes and one liners. Hard to believe that there were only 12 episodes.
