    Synopsis


    Terminally rude hotelier Basil Fawlty (John Cleese) and his garrulous, supremely unhelpful wife Sybil (Prunella Scales) open the doors of their Torquay inn to a wide variety of hapless customers as Fawlty Towers launches its first season on BBC2. Originally telecast on September 19, 1975, the first of the season's six episodes is "A Touch of Class," in which Basil is (mis)led to believe that his latest customer, one Lord Melbury, will at last bring some prestige to his seedy establishment. Next up is "Builders," wherein waitress Polly (Connie Booth) is left in charge of the hotel while "repairs" are made in the lobby. This is followed by "The Wedding Party," in which snoopy Basil goes to ridiculous extremes to catch his guests committing extramarital shenanigans. Also: in "Hotel Inspectors," Basil agonizes over the possibility that he has insulted an important government functionary; our hero holds a "Gourmet Night" at the hotel, with disastrous results; and in the classic season finale "The Germans," a chaotic fire drill threatens to spark a nasty international incident. ~ Hal Erickson

      This series is one of the best comedies out there! The antics of the Fawlty Towers cast will have you laughing out loud. Every cast member brings a unique and truly original contribution to the show. I'm so glad I bought this series.

      This is the second edition of Fawlty Towers on DVD, and this set is a much cleaner, clearer remaster of the original DVD set from nearly 10 + years ago. Also, there's extra features than the previous releases. Very good release.

      Worth the purchase just for the extras and to turn anyone you know on to Fawlty if they've never seen it before.
