This series was originally made in the 1970's and this is the 2009 remastered version. My husband and I had the VHS version and we had watched them so many times that we had literally worn the tapes out. That set consisted of 4 tapes and this is down to 3 DVDs and has extras beyond just the original episodes. If you like John Cleese and/or Monty Pythonesque humor you MUST see this series. The premise of the series is that Cleese and his wife, played by Prunella Scales, are hotel owners. The hotel is Fawlty Towers in Torquay, owned by Basil and Sybil Fawlty (Cleese & Scales), assisted by hilarious members of staff, permanent guests and various visitors. I make it sound dull but it is a masterpiece. There are several sites online where you can read much more about it. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Not at all the image on the box
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? So So
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great. The inner plastic on ours was broken in two small places but really wasn't worth complaining about.
well the product itself is great. but it is not the exact on i ordered. It has a different cover and only 350hrs. but on the web site it said it had 500hrs. it wa a gift for a b-day so obviously it was too late to try and correct it. this is the only time i have ever been not happy with my purchase. over all i love overstock. thanks for reading.......
