Black Books

Okay, so the Brother and I just finished another British comedy series, this one recommended to me by Javmango. It's a hilarious series starring Dylan Moran, Bill Bailey, and Tamsin Greig.

The basic premise of the story revolves around the lives of Bernard Black, a misanthropic bookstore owner; his well-meaning and bearded assistant Manny Bianco; and Fran Katzenjammer, Bernard's oldest friend who owns the gift shop next door.

The series is hilarious! I can't recommend it enough! ;)


  1. Rich Guy: I expect better service!
    Bernard: Well, expect away. Goodbye! Come on, all you time-wasting bastards, back on the streets. Thank you!

    i've always wanted to say that :D

  2. Thanks for following my sis :).

    I had something else for you but my faulty memory has let it slip away. If it comes back I'll send it.

  4. @Oldfool...

    Thank you so much! The article was amazing :D

  5. Ha yeah I love Black Books. Bill Bailey is my hero! If you're looking at British comedies, Green Wing is also very funny though sadly no books involved. And Father Ted is one of my favourites :)

  6. Ooh, thank you, Barbara! I'll have to check those out :)

    (And if Bill Bailey is your hero, I'd have to say Dylan Moran is mine! :P)

  7. Black Books is soooo epic!!!

  8. If you are interested in British comedies, 'The Martins' is a good film. Lee Evans stars, along with Kathy Burke.


    Another one would be 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' also staring Kathy Burke :)
