Columbo. The first two and maybe three seasons were absolute TV classics. The later ones were a little bit tame and the character of Columbo seemed to lose some of his more quirky habits which made the first seasons so memorable. Great TV mysteries though with a twist: You knew who the murderer was, but how would Columbo nail him?
Fawlty Towers The series is set in Fawlty Towers, a fictional hotel in the seaside town of Torquay. The plots centre around tense, rude and put-upon owner Basil Fawlty (Cleese), his bossy wife Sybil (Prunella Scales), a comparatively normal chambermaid Polly (Booth), and hapless Spanish waiter Manuel (Andrew Sachs) and their attempts to run the hotel amidst farcical situations and an array of demanding and eccentric guests.
