Thread Name: BS: Fawlty Towers
Subject: BS: Fawlty Towers
Last night I saw a nice retrospective of the British TV series Fawlty Towers. Most of the actors and producers ect were there to talk about the show. It's hard to believe that there were only 12 episodes filmed. I wish it had gone on a LOT longer. But John Cleese was quoted as saying that after 12 episodes they figured it had gone on long enough. They had done what they wanted to do with the idea.

To this day I still mimic Sybil shouting "BASIL". And when I'm confused {often} I'm liable to say "I speak english very good - I learn it from a boook"
