BritComs : Black Books

Black Books

I just started watching this show and must say, it is pure brilliance! Dylan Moran is perfect as Bernard Black, the biggest bahstahd since Basil Fawlty! The story lines are amazing, the acting perfect, and the comedy surreal.

Re: Black Books

You might like Green Wing as well. It's been several years since I've seen either, but I think the girl in Green Wing is from Black Books, and I greatly enjoyed both shows.

Re: Black Books

Thank you for the rec, "Green Wing" is hilarious! I cannot believe that Dr. Statham is Brian from "Spaced"! Had I not looked, I would have NEVER known. Thank you again for "Green Wing".

Mark Heap was superb in Big Train too, also with Simon Pegg.

Re: Black Books

I love the show. Funny as hell. I am at one point Buying the Black Books Boxset. My favorite is the lock out. Baily is a riot.

Re: Black Books


Best ep. for me was when they drank that very, very expensive bottle of wine and decided to replicate it from the ingredients on the bottle. Bill Bailey with his "Egor" spoof was hilarious!

Re: Black Books

A funny show but I had hoped there would be more actual bookstore humor. Most of the time, they could be anywhere.

Re: Black Books

I loved the cleaner from episode 3 of the series, that was a showstealing character haha. "Filthy!".

Re: Black Books

I love Black Books. Especially when they make fun of Jehova's Witnesses or Churchianity.
