Yes, Basil used to draw incorrect conclusions based upon partial or assumed knowledge and made himself look silly in most episodes.
Fawlty towers is like sitting though a decade of watching the golden girls compared to the content written in this thread.
Days of our lives is more on par with the seriousness of Fawlty towers in comparison. I agree with your comparison of Basil though, Basil and "tree hugger at VEAO" share much of the same mentality and thought processes.
Would you both like me to post up some gathered transcripts written for Basil in Fawlty Towers with evidence supporting my claim with a few more collective quotes from "tree lover at VEAO"? I am more than happy to contribute so you can see these 2 suffer the same drone effect? Basil in Fawlty Towers and "tree lover at VEAO" or are you both content to research these for yourself?
