I was flicking (flixing?) through Netflix this morning, trying to arrange my Halloween watching for October when I stumbled across something wonderful. The Wonder Years, the nostalgia invoking masterpiece, is now available to watch through Netflix Streaming. So if this selection of fall programming has got you down and you have watched all the Trek you can handle on Netflix Streaming, point your browser or streaming device over to The Wonder Years and enjoy.
It just so happens that I do in fact work at an Inn/Hotel when I’m not sharing things with you, friends. So while I absolutely adore the antics of the legendary John Cleese as Basil Fawlty in the BBC classic Fawlty Towers…it freezes my blood to think that maybe, just maybe a guest thinks I’m as rude as he is. Stokesbook or as he is better known, David Stokes, over on deviantART created this fantastic piece of art showing Basil Fawlty’s normal look…that of disdain.
If you’ve not had the pleasure by chance to watch an episode of Fawlty Towers the entire series is available on Netflix Streaming!
