I had seen some of the “Monty Python” shows and liked them very much, but a friend gave me the “Fawlty Towers” series on DVD and I fell in love. My only regret is that there are just 12 episodes. It’s some of the VERY FUNNIEST comedy I’ve ever seen!!!!!

I adore you John Cleese and may you have a HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY Birthday!!!!!

The only thing that would make me more (if possible) exited for the HBP movie would be a picture or video snippet of a ghost. I’m so sad they’ve not been very present the previous films. I guess Moaning Myrtle has, but I want them knights and the bloody baron.. Something to give Hogwarths more depth and history in the movies, i felt the ghosts really gave that.
