First Community [Jan. 4th, 2010|07:39 pm]
Fawlty Towers appreciation

[Current Location |That place where I'm currently at]

First community I'm entering! Woho! Be happy for me. I've been a member for... an hour (Yeah, that's right, An hour) on Livejournal now, and when I saw that there was a Fawlty Towers Community I couldn't do anything but join ;)

 I'm a huge fan of Monty Python, Fawlty Towers and pretty much anything the Python-gang does.
I think this ends my pointless entry... Hope you welcome me to your community ^^

I have this terrible feeling of deja vu, I.... [Nov. 16th, 2009|02:11 pm]

[mood |contentcontent]

Spent more than I can technically afford again at the moment, but, being how much I like this TV series, and the only copies I have are rather fuzzy quality copies recorded off the local PBS station years ago, and the first DVD release from 2001 (which looks rotten on the new TV)...I just couldn't pass this up!

Instead of ordering it from Amazon this time, picked it up at the local "Best Buy" while I was out on a job search. Come to think of it, I think I was out of work when the first one was released also.

I've read numerous online reviews stating that the new set is leaps and bounds better in picture clarity than the previous one, or as well as it can get with standard-def tape sources from the 1970's. The previous set apparently used broadcast copies as the source, while the new set went back to the ORIGINAL source materials. Also, there are John Cleese commentaries on every episode, and new interviews with the cast... been wanting to see how Connie Booth has held up over the years...

I'll be heading to the living room shortly to start watching it, I'll give a report later.

UPDATE: Still a bit "fuzzy" as might be expected from 30 year old videotaped sources, but a VAST improvement over the previous DVD release... oh, and I'd STILL "hit" Connie Booth...

Bought the newly remastered collection?

I did. I love it.

I have to say the episodes look amazing. It’s so much clearer. Additionally I enjoyed the features that came with it as well.

I think it’s great that, it came out in time for John Cleese's birthday tomorrow.

What do you all think?

Fawlty Towers Motel [Sep. 9th, 2007|10:13 pm]
Fawlty Towers appreciation

                                                                                             Hello Dear Fawlty Towers Lovers!!!
Now there is a Fawlty Towers Motel in Cocoa Beach, Florida!
I wish I had time to go in there and see what it looks like inside, perhaps the atmosphere was the same as in the show, but I couldn't, so I just passed it and took two pictures from the car.

Icon Question or Possible Request [Aug. 25th, 2007|12:43 am]
Fawlty Towers appreciation

Hi, I'm curious if anyone has made/could make an icon of the following quote from Gourmet Night:

"Oh dear, what shape do you usually have? Mickey Mouse shape? Smarties shape? Amphibious landing craft shape? Poke in the eye shape?"

Much appreciated, thanks.

EDIT: Could I also get this one:

"Do you know what that fire extinguisher did? It exploded in my face. I mean, what is the point of a fire extinguisher? It sits there for months, and when you actually have a fire - when you actually need the bloody thing - it blows your head off! I mean, what is happening to this country? It's bloody Wilson!"

From The Germans?

Fanfiction? [Jul. 21st, 2006|11:29 pm]
Fawlty Towers appreciation

Hello, and I am happy to join a Farty Towels community. I absolutely adore John Cleese and I'm trying to get my other Python fan friend to start watching the series on PBS.

I'm also a bit of a dorky fanfiction writer (though I normally don't watch a show and think "oh, what a cute pairing" it's distracting) and I was wondering if anyone knew of FT fics.

I love the icons in this community, and... if I could make a request... I'd like some Basil/Sybil, Basil/Polly, or Polly/Manuel icons, or, even better, screencaps so I could make my own and post here.
