From Amazon.co.uk

Basil Fawlty, as created and performed by John Cleese, is the rudest, most boorish, most hilariously obnoxious man on the face of the planet. What a natural for a TV sitcom! His screen wife, Sybil (Prunella Scales), put it best in the episode "The Psychiatrist": "You're either crawling all over them, licking their boots, or spitting poison at them like some Benzedrine puff adder." He mockingly replies, "Just trying to enjoy myself, dear." With his gangly frame and contortionist abilities, Cleese brilliantly punctuates Basil's outrageous faux pas with absurd gymnastics and turns Three Stooges-style pokes and kicks into a slapstick ballet. Scales's Sybil is the genial but obliviously chatty voice of reason and Andrew Sachs mangles the English language as the Spanish bellhop Manuel, whose struggles with simple directions results in comic lunacy reminiscent of Robert Benigni. After a six-episode run in 1975, Cleese and co-writer and co-star Connie Booth (who plays Polly, the maid all too often pulled into Basil's ridiculous plans) reunited the cast in 1979 for another six episodes without missing a punch line. Remember to watch the opening credits of each show to spot the creative misspellings on the hotel sign (our favorite: "Fatty Owls"). --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com

Ignore the critics - this is cleaned up as much as one can ever realistically expect for something that was recorded as video in the 70s. One could do a frame-by-frame restoration to try to get it to look HD, but this is a whole two seasons of Fawlty Towers - that would make it prohibitively expensive for the relatively small audience, and probably end up looking much less authentic.

I have always been a "fan" of Fawlty Towers and this version on DVD, replacing my VCR, is certainly of better quality. I can enjoy again this very good series. I recommend it. A big thanks to Amazon for its efficiecy.
