That show was the shit. I sort of grew up on public television, so I used to watch all the British comedies with with my mom, and I don't think anything else ever made me laugh for that long. I don't even remember it that well, but I think I'm gonna get the DVD collection, 'cause I miss it.

yeah fawlty towers was one of the best uk shows ever. it still has nothing on Blackadder though, which may be the funniest series of all time.

Fawlty Towers is fucking genious. I was in a school play where we did an episode of Fawlty Towers (I was Basil) - so much fun. I'm glad they don't do what most shows do and have heaps of seasons - only making 12 episodes and making them the best they could be is so much better that letting the show go on and become crap.

I totally loved it when i saw it for the first time, it's starting to be dragging a bit if i watch it now. But fuck that was the best series ever. There were only 13 episodes, fuck that.

The one that Basil freaks out and imitates Hitler in front of a few Germans is the fucking best. The best part is, that one didn't get broadcast in Germany, though the rest did.

If you like him freaking out and so, you should try to find/download "How to irritate people". The title alone says enough i think. :D
