The third disc has all the additional material, the best of which are new interviews with John Cleese, Andrew Sachs and Prunella Scales.

The box set contains three DVD discs: Series One and Two are on a disc each plus a third disc of Special Features. However, a couple of years later, I bought the DVD set to finally see the whole series, and it was a markedly different experience. This special edition marks the 30th Anniversary of one of the greatest situation comedies British television has ever seen. All things considered, I'd still chalk up the series' shortcomings to its reputation as much as its few flaws, so modern viewers should just take whatever praise they've heard for the show with a grain of salt and things will probably be fine.Series 2 episodes are: 'Communication Problems', 'The Psychiatrist', 'Waldorf Salad', 'The Kipper and the Corpse', 'The Anniversary' and 'Basil the Rat'.

Personally, I'm also more of a dialogue person than anything, and almost every episode has several good one-liners ("Racket? If you are in Australia or New Zealand (DVD Region 4), note that almost all DVDs distributed in the UK by the BBC and 2entertain are encoded for both Region 2 and Region 4. Also included are text biographies of all the leads and the guest stars, a short background featurette on Torquay and the hotel owner who is said to have inspired Basil, a very short blooper reel of out-takes and a brief teaser with Cleese in character entitled Cheap Tatty Review. Finally, in 'The Wedding Party', Basil gets the wrong impression when some old friends of Polly (Booth)'s arrive at the hotel. Each disc has one of the famous "alternate hotel sign" title treatments on it, there is a disc breakdown on each of the flaps, and a booklet with an article about the show inside of it.Since I'm already late on this review, I'm not going to go into detail, other than to say that the interviews are fairly good and the commentaries aren't (unless you like dead air). Whether you're looking for the latest blockbuster release, a TV series you want to binge, or a classic film - you'll find what you need in our categories. All twelve episodes of John Cleese and Connie Booth's highly successful comedy series, set in a Torquay hotel.

In the second, Basil backs himself into a corner with lies as usual, but this time there's a party guest (Ken Campbell) who sees through each and every one of his excuses and is visibly amused, giving the audience something to laugh at other than Basil's misfortune.

In 'A Touch of Class', Basil's quest for a better class of clientele seems to have succeeded with the arrival at the hotel of Lord Melbury (Michael Gwynn). Communication Problems' sees Basil (Cleese) forced to deal with a deaf guest while attempting to conceal his gambling win from Sybil (Prunella Scales).Comedy about a hotel and its owner, a man of infinite rudeness with a rabid dislike of almost all guests. The Kipper and the Corpse' finds Basil and Manuel trying to dispose of a dead body without any of the guests noticing. Excellent Fawlty Towers Collection which shows all the 12 original episodes as well as some other extra's. Finally, "Basil the Rat" introduces an entirely unpredictable animal element in addition to an imposing, short-tempered health inspector. Fawlty Towers was famously inspired by an unbelievably rude hotel proprietor John Cleese encountered whilst filming with Monty Python.

I understand that their bickering is part of the joke, but it's distracting that their entire marriage consists of the characters' hatred for one another. com is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Pay4Later Limited, trading as Deko, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 728646). The Builders' sees Basil in hot water with Sybil when he employs the unreliable Irish labourer Mr O'Reilly (David Kelly) to do some work in the hotel lobby.In 'The Anniversary', a secret party planned for Sybil (Prunella Scales) goes awry when the guest of honour storms out of the hotel. The Kipper and the Corpse’ finds Basil and Manuel trying to dispose of a dead body without any of the guests noticing. You'd think at some point, he'd stop putting any faith in Manuel's ability to understand him, or stop trying to hide certain things from Sybil, but he never does, resulting in the various predicaments all feeling alike.
