Basil Fawlty was one of the best television characters ever! And throw in Manuel and the others, and it was perfect! [/quote] but his character quickly became predicable. there wasnt much to believe about his character, especially the way he would just keep digging himself in to a deeper and deeper hole. just didnt come across as credible, or likeable for that matter. i could fully sympathise with sybil, who was several times more intelligent and competent than him :1dunno1: theres a ton of far more funny and clever stuff out there. times have moved on since fawlty towers and benny hill i was just trying to think of the last time i laughed out load at a comedy. the other night i was watching an episode of 'friday night dinner', and a few days before that i caught a repeat of an episode of 'green room' funny, clever stuff! although obv, each to their own! [/quote] You are right, of course. And Fawlty Towers is definitely dated -- way to racey for todays tastes. But its scripts were a winner while it lasted. Another oldey I liked was Mr PrimeMinister. And I esp liked the uncanned laughter -- they didnt need it. Does the UK have laws against canned laughter? [/quote]
Was Fawlty Towers, starring John Cleese of Monty Python fame, the best British sitcom ever? I thought it was hilarious.
