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] honestly, i think the british dont rate it as highly as others do. we have such a rich catalogue of comedy here. we churn it out like second nature of course it IS highly rated here but it is a classic like the beatles though, its another one of those british things that springs to mind as a british band, and yet there are soooo many bands that have contributed just as much, if not more it seems that only a tiny % of our creative talent seems to exported [/quote]
Was Fawlty Towers, starring John Cleese of Monty Python fame, the best British sitcom ever? I thought it was hilarious.
