Fawlty Towers is my all time comedy favourite. The characters and cast are magic. Basil is brilliant with his rudeness, paranoia, snobbishness, sarcasm. He utters several funny one liner insults to... Read moreeveryone. When Sybil had her ingrown toe nail removed, he grumpily muttered, "wish it was an ingrown tongue." This series also has Basil's classic, funny German walk. Andrew Sachs plays a marvelous Manuel - always an hilarious caper between him and Basil. The major, whom Basil under his breath calls "decrepit old sod" also provides a laugh or two with his dithering, senile antics. What makes FT one of a kind is the chemistry and perfect timing of the actors. I think FT is John Cleese's best work.
Welcome to the most celebrated hotel in television history. An establishment run by guest-hating owner Basil Fawlty, and his "little nest of vipers" wife, with hindrance of a confused waiter from Barcelona. With resident guests as mad as hatters, visitors guaranteed to infuriate and a maid desperate to restore sanity, this legendary farce produces more laughs than was ever thought possible in a situation comedy.
