That is totally awesome! I know a few people who will appreciate that!

And totally cutting edge special effects as well!

I have my children to blame for this one. I took them to see the Hannah Montana movie and we were looking at videos. Taylor Swift sings a song in the movie that we wanted to look up, which led to her song Love Story (not in the movie). Oh. My.... I love period costume, and this is period costume porn...

I do like that song, and the video.

A very cool multi-national version of an old stand-by (so to speak!)

Surfing YouTube last night and watched a few clips of "Faulty Towers"....what a hoot....great Brit TV.... Cleese et all and the terrific writing....today's USA sitcoms don't even come close....not a "Seinfeld/Office" fan....only my opinion.....

Oh, I loved Fawlty Towers! It was hilarious. John Cleese is brilliant. I think there were only 12 or 13 of them made, but I can watch them over and over again.

Must admit, this one made me giggle. The Onion has a spoof review of trekkie fan feedback of the new Star Trek movie.

Fawlty Towers

If you have a Netflix subscription, you can watch all kinds of movies and television shows at netflix.com without commercials. The list includes the entire Fawlty Towers library.

It's taking some real stern talking to myself to stay away when I should be working.
