Are you a fan of Fawlty Towers? Ever even heard of the show? Well it’s where John Cleese headed for a brief time after Monty Python back in 1975 and 1979. The show only ran for 12 episodes, but every single one of them is hysterical, and many are funny enough to bring tears to your eyes (that’s not PR, that’s my opinion). Fawlty Towers also starred Prunella Scales, Connie Both and Andrew Sachs.

Well it’s the 30th anniversary of the show and the episodes are being re-released in a special edition, remastered DVD set – and we have four (4) copies to give away!

Here’s the official description and background on the British TV series:

Hot off the runaway success of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, John Cleese embarked on his now-legendary sitcom, Fawlty Towers, . One of the most memorable and best-loved characters in British comedy, Basil Fawlty is a much put-upon, hardworking hotel manager whose life is plagued by dead guests, hotel inspectors and other assorted riff-raff. Of course his biggest headache is his “little nest of vipers,” his nagging wife Sibyl, the unflappable Polly and the trainee waiter from Barcelona, Manuel, who has marginally more intelligence than a monkey.

Premiering in the UK in 1975 and airing in continuous PBS syndication ever since, , Fawlty Towers, has received three BAFTA Awards, Best Comedy Performance for John Cleese and two for Best Situation Comedy. In addition, the beloved sitcom is the BBC’s top-selling comedy series of all time on DVD.

  1. Cleese is the classic study of pent-up frustration in this. The pompous Little Englander with ideas above his station, completely henpecked and browbeaten. The ongoing state of barely reined-in chaos summed up by the haphazard and surreal rearrangement of the letters on the Fawlty Towers sign at the beginning of every episode: “WARTY TOWELS”, “FATTY OWLS” etc. I always used to wonder who was supposed to be doing this (as if it really mattered). Local kids? Fawlty himself in a fit of self-destructive pique?

    Every episode beautifully written and performed. Like The (UK) Office and Spaced, so glad they didn’t run it into the ground.

    Fawlty giving his car a “damn good thrashing” with a tree branch still does it for me.

  2. This is the funniest show I ever watched, and i recommend it to everybody.

  3. Would love to win this.

  4. I have mulled over buying this set on DVD for years. I respectively request to win this to save me any more stress of making such decision. :)

  5. same here, sent the e-mail in even though I already subscribe, winning this would be a traet!

  6. 1. In one episode a local youth is seen rearranging the sign.

    2. Not that it matters for a comedy (it may even be part of the charm), but “Remastered” is kind of ridiculous here as the video quality of this show was never better than inadequate to begin with. Now we will be able to watch the poorly-made-up actors on the ill-lit sets, filmed with second-rate ’70s BBC cameras, in all it’s glory? Where’s the blu-ray?

  7. @JGM

    I really hope you don’t win this.

  8. Yay!! I won!!! Lol

  9. I want that Star Trek contest so badly

  10. Yah! I won! Thanks Vic!

  11. congrats to those who won, (rats!)

  12. Gang, for future reference if I ask for a mailing address in an entry, you NEED to provide that.


  13. I won! I’m so excited that I may have to eat a wafer-thin mint!!! I can’t wait till it gets here.

    Funny thing, we went to Italy years ago & stayed in a hotel that had been renovated many years over the centuries so the stairways & hallways had multi-levels & turns in odd places very similar to Fawlty Towers!! It was our favourite hotel!
