3 faulty ‘Fawlty Towers’ remakes…

The John Cleese/Connie Booth UK original classic, 1975

Below, are bad-to-horrible US remakes of this wonderful television show. Too bad such great talent was wasted on these projects.

Harvey Korman and Betty White in ‘Snavely’ or ‘Chateau Snavely’, 1978

Bea Arthur in ‘Amanda’s’ or ‘Amanda’s by the Sea’, 1983

John Larroquette in ‘Payne’, 1999

“BEWITCHED” was a traditional show disguised in feminist clothing

In this mini-series, we look again at media we have loved to consider how it depicted gender. How does it look to a person with a 2019 perspective on gender roles and norms? Warning: Contains spoilers.

When did it air? 1964-1972

How does it hold up? Not well
