Fawlty Towers rewatch - episodes 2.1 and 2.2
M1795537OCVirn
FT is farce, best done at speed, as you said, with lots of doors opening and shutting.

Basil in a hole. Keeps...on...digging
 
Cygnus Bazza
Sybil gave him one verbal warning. Second offence - slap in the face. Fair?
 
M1795537OCVirn
Every episode could be titled 'Communication difficulties' - the essence of farce.

More classic Manuel...

Spot on!

Did Basil just call him a piltdown ponce?
I'm using that at work.

Bit unfair to Piltdown Man

Only in the archaeology section, though

OK - but maybe not in Cookery or Travel.

This is a wonderful moment when Mrs Johnson emerges

Is that a 9 or a 10??? I thought it'd be a 10 but I'm not 100% sure
 
M1795537OCVirn
The desperately sad part is that Basil is usually in the right, from his point of view. As OSP said, it makes it painful to watch.
"You're not sulking, I hope?"

I would call that a 9.

Will TT overrule the points?

9.5 then. Don't dither.

He could go to VAR

If you are uncertain it can't be 10.

I like half points. 9.5 it is then.
Then along came TT....

That's watertight logic

These hours absolutely fly by!

Right. Are we done? Fully expect to hear about a library fracas in tomorrow's news - complaints about inappropriate language directed by staff at 'undesirables'

Loved watching these eps tonight. I haven't seen these for an age. See you next week for another corker.

Yes indeed. It's THE BIG ONE. (For me anyway...)

OK then, great talking to you. Time to get back to work. Hope you both have a great week.

Magnificent. Goodnight, OSP & M1. Here's to the Advent Calendar!

Came across this - nice try.

(Does this mean Security is following my rewatching habits?? Worrying thought).)

That's a good find, M1. Some decent lines in there.
