I was wondering if any of you have seen How to Irritate Poeple and John Clease's hit sitcom Falwty Towers. If you have what is your opinion on it.[:)]

AMoung My Pets are such diverse animals such as.
Eric the Half-a-bee
Eric the Halibut
Eric the dog
Eric the cat
Eric the Fruit bat

and there is no rule six.

I own How to Irritate people, I've seen it too many times, I'm kind of getting bored with it, I only watch it for the airline sketch.

I own both How To Irritate People and all of the Fawlty Towers episode. How to Irritate People is good because you can see the early genesis of some Python sketches in it - the mechanic one is a very good example as this formed the basis of the Dead Parrot sketch.

Fawlty Towers - classic comedy, not at all Python. My favorite episode has to be The Hotel Inspectors.

I have seen all the faulty towers episodes and just loved them. I especially loved the cast. Not only did it have the great john cleese[:D] but it also had andrew sachs who played his part brilliantly. I will be buying the complete set on dvd as soon as i has the funds.

I could go on and on about Fawlty Towers. Absolutely brilliant. My favorite episode is ' Communications Problems ' although by a very slim margin. They are all so great. Only 12 episodes and each one a classic. I have had them on videotape for years, and must have seen each one 50 times, but every time I watch them I seem to find another funny detail I never noticed before.

Salad as in lettuce, cucumbers, radishes, yeah, yeah, yeah.
