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>

Fawlty Towers, It Wasn't!
11 December 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

This was another attempt to make an American version of the hit British series Fawlty Towers. Ms. Arthur was the owner of a hotel. Just like on the British show, her character had to deal with insufferable guests. Ms. Arthur is excellent at put-downs and sarcasm. However, it wasn't enough to keep this show going.
