A bad remake(rip-off?) of Fawlty Towers.
17 March 1999 | by (Spokane, Washington) – See all my reviews

This show is no where near as good as Fawlty Towers, first off John Larroquette is no where near as good as John Cleese. Royal actually likes his wife, where is the hatred that was shown between Basil and Sybil? The maid- nothing compared to Connie Booth. While it is sporadically funny, I cant help think of Fawlty Towers whenever I watch.
