Sunday Cinema – “Fawlty Towers”

John Cleese created this sitcom with Connie Booth about a seaside hotel in England and all the crazy employees & guests that frequent it. Hen-pecked Basil Fawlty & his bossy wife Sybil are constantly having to please guests and deal with crazy situations their employees create.

It had a short run of 2 seasons of 6 episodes each & has been attempted to be “Americanized” at least 3 times (the latest being “Payne” in 1999 starring John Laroquette) and has seen a remake in Germany.

Someone posted episode one online for you to check out for yourself…
