Fawlty Towers managed to be the funniest comedy series in the history of the world, thanks to its excellent writing and the glorious comic talents of the amazing John Cleese. Second to him is the clueless Manuel, a waiter from Barcelona who only understands SOME English and whose head is Basil Fawlty's squeezie ball. Also present are the shrewish Sybil Fawlty and the brainy waittress Polly.
"Builders" involves Basil ordering O'Reilly's builders to do something with a door-but when he returns to the hotel, he discovers that Polly fell asleep and Manuel was the one directing the builders. There's going to be a lot of weirdness involving a garden gnome, screaming, architectural hazards, and the memorable scene where Basil spanks himself.
In "Wedding Party" the promiscuities of the hotel guests are getting Basil down. A pair of newlyweds arrive, along with an older couple -- and Basil sees the older husband embracing both a young blonde and Polly. Meanwhile, a Frenchwoman is trying to seduce Basil, and Manuel's drunken behavior embarrasses Basil further.
"Psychiatrist" brings out the worst of Basil's idiosyncracies, when he is determined not to let a visiting psychiatrist pry into his love life and ends up making an idiot of himself. Meanwhile, a hotel guest is smuggling his girlfriend into the hotel, and Basil is determined to toss her out. Watch for the "headless frog" imitation.
This is less nutty than Monty Python, but still there are parts to fast-forward for the kiddies. Besides that, it's a ridiculous laughfest that twists and turns in a way Seinfeld never could. I wish I could award SIX stars!
