Fawlty Towers
Basil Fawlty is an inept and manic English hotel owner and manager who isn't cut out for his job. He's intolerant, rude and paranoid. Chaos frequently breaks loose as Basil tries to run the hotel. He is constantly under verbal (and sometime physical) attack from his unhelpful wife Sybil, and hindered by the incompetent, but easy target, Manuel, the Spanish waiter. Fortunately he has an intelligent and attractive maid to help him out of the various situations he gets into.

Amaizing. 1 of the best movies I have ever seen. I highly recommend it. It will never grow old. And they never overdo it. John cleese (Basil Fawlty) was married to connie Booth(polly sherman) at the time.

Great show and still hilarious after all these years - btw The girl who played Polly was apparently married to John Cleese.

I love this show! Being a Monty Python fan myself, I love British comedy. And the story behind is truly unthinkable. John Cleese and Connie Booth are excellent in it. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
