A superb epitomisation of great British wit, sarcasm and farce. One is never sure whether to laugh at Basil or to feel embarassed for him. The episode with the Irish builder will have even the most humourless of people in tears of laughter. A must buy for anyone with a sense of humour and a perfect introduction for those that haven't. Comedy does not get better.

Maybe this is a coincidence (not likely), but several people I know own this DVD (including myself) and on every one the final three episodes DO NOT PLAY! There is some kind of fault with the menu screen and when you select "The Hotel Inspectors", "Gourmet Night" or "The Germans", the opening music plays but nothing else comes up. Add to that a complete lack of extrras and second rate presentation, I simply cannot say anything positive about it! Of course the show itself is great but unless you want to waste your money on three episodes, get the boxset with everything on.
COMPLETE RIP-OFF, AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I would like to second the reviewer who said the final three episodes on this DVD would not play. I wish I had read that before. I ordered the DVD, final three would not play. So I got it replaced by Amazon. Guess what? Final three would not play on that DVD also. What a nuisance having to send it back and wait forever for a refund. Beware of this DVD!

I am a huge fan of this TV show. Although I wanted to say that this dvd does not have any extras. I brought it and was dispointed that it didn't have any.

Aside from it being incredibly funny, the scripting is worth at least a thesis. The compact irony, the depth and strength in which it deals with the (our) prejudices and obviously the brilliant acting makes Fawlty Towers a must for any lover of good comedy. The powerful combination of a male and female scriptwriters' duo turns this series into something rather special. I have "forced" my German friends to watch the Episode of "The Germans" over and over again. After which they all went out to buy the video :-).

Loved the series when it was on TV and really enjoyed watching it again on DVD. The clothes worn by the cast are obviously dated but that doesn't detract from the sheer genius of the writing.

I have just played my THIRD copy of Fawlty Towers Series One. and like the others I cannot play the last three episodes

This is scandalous and I am amazed that the BBC and the Hut and Blah - my suppliers - have not taken action

Disgruntled Fawlty Fan - it wouldn't be so bad if the progs were rubbish - but they are GEMS

Regards to all sufferers
