    I would, but the wife hates all stuff like that (reasons I can’t divulge) same with only fools and horses, British comedy at it’s best imo. Used to watch it years ago when I was living at home

    I have the entire series on my NAS, we watch them from time to time, usually in total silence in case one of us mentions the war.

    To add to this, many years ago I went to a holiday chalet place for a break,the manageress was a spitting image of Sybil, though I was seeing things but no she was the exact double of her, you can imagine the leg pulling that went on.

    I once stayed in a hotel in Pitlochry, the owners were extremely well trained by Basil and Sybil!


    A few years ago, I was told from a vey reliable souce that you would never see Fawlty Towers or other JC comedies on an aircraft becasue Cleese would not give approval as he never wanted to see himself!

    After his appearance on GB News I cant quite find John Cleese funny.

    I don't think anyone should watch GB News but Cleese was the less offensive than most, still, any comedian that needs to resort to that is obviously not funny enough to cut it in the real world.

    Only flowery tw@ts watch old school stuff like that, I'm surprised it's still available in these wake days!!.
    Classic, and only a few episodes actually made.
