So, I went and bought series one and series two on second hand DVD for one pound each.
I first saw series one of Fawlty Towers when I was about 11, then I saw series two a year later.
It's a little dated now, but that doesn't really matter because it's still making people laugh. That's all comedy is.
There is one episode - The Kipper and the Corpse - which I think is a bit rough around the edges, it's not as polished as some of the other episodes. But it still has some great lines in it, e.g.
The two old ladies: You're in a good mood today, Mr Fawlty.
Basil: Yes, well one of the guests has just died.
The first episode of the first series is a bit quieter than others but I think it still does a good job of introducing all the characters.
This comedy has nostalgia for me and brings back quite a few memories. And I was born in 1979, I missed out on watching them live.
As I said, it's a little dated, we know we're watching 70s TV, but it's still very well written and laugh-out-loud funny.
