Andrew Sachs who played Manuel on Fawlty Towers has died.
Ah that's too bad. Will never forget the gig about the Pigs on the roof top since he misunderstood Pigeons. He was really funny!
"I am from Barcelona"... one of my favourite shows growing up, can't even state which is my favourite from all the episodes, but probably "Kipper and the Corpse", or the one where Manuel thought they put his pet rat "Basil" in the ratatouille. Amazingly good actor and funny guy.
The Brits have a sophisticated way with humor that most Americans just don't get. And now the great ones are dying off. Sad.
