Series Info

A delightfully manic British comedy about an ill-mannered innkeeper, created by and starring `Monty Python' alum John Cleese and his then-wife, Connie Booth. Inspired by a real-life English hotelier, the series won legions of American fans when it aired on PBS in the 1970s. The program's initial run of six episodes premiered on the BBC in September 1975. A second season of six episodes ran in February 1979.

Critics Consensus: Fawlty Towers looms large over British comedy with Michael Cleese's impeccably hapless performance and an endless array of exuberant slapstick -- making for a supremely stimulating chuckler.
