Strike Two in the Fawlty Towers remake trilogy
Preceded by "Snavely Manor" ( Harvey Korman, Betty White ) followed by "Payne" ( John Larroquette, JoBeth Williams ) this second attempt to Americanize the classic British sitcom "Fawlty Towers" pulls a gender bender switch by casting Bea Arthur as the owner of a small country inn.

While the sharp tongued Arthur (Maude, Golden Girls) was well suited for the verbal jousting of the role, the series lacked the pure physical slapstick of the British original.

While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery I recall being outraged to discover that the credits for the program made no mention of "Fawlty Towers" even though many scenes, particularly in the pilot, were lifted directly from the original.
