[quote:Anonymous Coward 1368041:MV8yMDQwNTE2XzM0Mjk5ODgwX0YxQkQzQUMz] [quote:Anonymous Coward 25816768:MV8yMDQwNTE2XzM0Mjk5NzMwXzE5MTVBNDM1] nooo, that was a very long time ago. much much funnier stuff has been written since then fawlty towers has become one of those british memes, or brands, that jonny foreigner likes to quote when they think of the 'the british sense of humour' some of it was pretty funny but i always found basil to be stupid to the point of disbelief and annoyance sybil, on the other hand was brilliant [/quote] Pretty funny?'Pretty funny?? You must be one of O'Reilleys men! Agreed though that sybil was brilliant. And I loved Terry the chef and his cockney accent. 'Karate, hey?' 'Well, it's a kinda karate innit?' The Kipper and the Corpse (a.k.a. Death) (series 2) Basil : Good morning, good morning. Miss Gatsby: Oh you're very cheerful this morning, Mr Fawlty. Basil : Yes, well one of the guests has just died. And possibly my all time favourite... Communication Problems (a.k.a. Theft) (series 2) Mrs Richards: And another thing. I expect to be able to see the sea. Basil : [whispering to Manuel] Deaf, Mad and Blind. [To Mrs Richards] Yes, this is the view as far as I can remember... yes, yes it is. Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that. Basil : But 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 across the plain... Mrs Richards: [interrupting] 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! Mrs Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that. Basil : Well might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it. Mrs Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisified but I've decided to stay. HOWEVER, I shall expect a deduction. Basil : Why, because Krakatoa isn't erupting at the moment? Mrs Richards: Because the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible and the raio doesn't work. Basil : No, the radio works. You don't. [/quote]
Was Fawlty Towers, starring John Cleese of Monty Python fame, the best British sitcom ever? I thought it was hilarious.
