Boring day at college
Watched the 1st Fawlty Towers = classic
Mar in a grump (translated - Mum in a bad mood)
Fawlty Towers began in 1975 over 6 episodes. It began again in 1979 so I guess they were running the first series again to remind us.
It is true eccentric British humour lead by John Cleese as hotel owner Basil Fawlty. Hardly surprising it was eccentric after all the years Cleese spent with the Monty Python crowd.
It is set in a small hotel in Torquay, Devon.Wikipedia gives a great resume of what it is all about far better than I could.
Needless to say I loved it then and still love it now.
This YouTube clip shows snippets of it. There are so many classic sketches such as the Germans, The Health Inspector, the Gourmet night where Basil is thrashing his broken down car with a branch and of course the Siberian hamster!!
This short compilation brought a smile to my face tonight :-)
Just found the clip I lost going off at a tangent a night or 2 ago
(sorry about the language..... but it did make me laugh)
