I think that it was an excellent rip off. John was twice the Basil that Cleese was. Sure Cleese was first and for purists the only one but J.L. was to say at the least exceptional. No one would ever have the guts to try this again but I wish someone would carry it on.I think the only thing that could possibly make it funnier would be to combine the two. Have the Fawlty towers gang do one show and then Payne do the next, then combine the two casts for a final show. Alternating Basil and Royal, What could be funnier. Mix the two casts for some real guffaws. I would like to know if Payne is available on DVD, I have Fawlty Towers and could only imagine watching the two side by side. If you have never seen Payne,,,,,,,imagine Royal and Constance Payne even the names crack me up. Love it for what it is, an absolute rip off thats just as funny and sometimes funnier that the god of comedy, John Cleese
