Storyline

Many attempts have been made to produce an American version of the British hit comedy "Fawlty Towers", of which this show is one. Amanda, owner of the struggling hotel Amanda's by the Sea, is trying to keep her head above water despite her staff seemingly doing their best to drive her under. Included in the mix is Amanda's son, fresh out of hotel management school and full of more theory than experience, his wife, who would rather be back in the city, and the bellhop Aldo, whose home country is a mystery, but is definitely not somewhere that English is spoken. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

IN the sea. more like it
30 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Based on the successful British BBC-TV series FAWLTY TOWERS starring John Cleese, It stars Bea Arthur and falls competely flat. Many reasons contribute to it's demise. First, Arthur is very good at put-downs, but unlike TOWERS, Arthur needs to be the butt of the joke a lot more often. But at a time when American women were looking for more role models and independence, the writers may have been hesitant to try and degrade Arthur's character. Also missing from this show is the physical humor in the TOWERS series. The way Cleese bent, fell, wobbled, crawled, skipped, ran, etc is non-existant. Archie Bunker was a closer match to Basil Fawlty than Amanda Cartright.
