[quote:Thor's Hamster:MV8yMDQwNTE2XzM0Mjk5NDgyXzE2QTlBMjhC] [quote:ToSeek:MV8yMDQwNTE2XzM0Mjk5NDYzX0ZGMkRCRjkz] Always thought of it more as a farce than a sitcom, but it's a classic, regardless. Basil: He's drunk! Sybil: Drunk? Basil: Drunk! Soused! Potted! Inebriated! Got it?! Sybil: I don't believe it! Basil: Neither do I. Perhaps it's a dream. [pounds his head on the desk several times, sits up, looks around.] Nope, it's not a dream. We're stuck with it. Mrs. Richards: When I pay for a room with a view, I expect something more interesting than that. Basil: That is Torquay madam. Mrs. Richards: Well it's not good enough. Basil: Well, may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically...? Mrs. Richards: Don't be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea. Basil: You can see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky. [The rat's head pokes out of the biscuit tray] Basil: [To Mr. Carnegie] W-W-Would you care for a rat, or...? [Awkward pause] Basil: Just the biscuits then, please, Polly. [/quote] True, you're right...it's not really a "sitcom". It was the first word that came to mind as I wrote the title for this thread. Farce, yes. Good choice of words. [/quote]
Was Fawlty Towers, starring John Cleese of Monty Python fame, the best British sitcom ever? I thought it was hilarious.
