Reviews

All three series of the BAFTA award-winning and critically acclaimed Channel 4 comedy.

Black Books centres around the foul tempered and wildly eccentric bookshop owner Bernard Black (Dylan Moran). Bernard’s devotion to the twin pleasures of drunkenness and wilful antagonism deepens and enriches both his life and that of Manny (Bill Bailey), his assistant. Bearded, sweet and good, Manny is everything that Bernard isn’t and is punished by Bernard relentlessly just for the crime of existing. They depend on each other for meaning as Fran (Tamsin Greig), their oldest friend, depends on them for distraction.

Black Books
is a haven of books, wine and conversation, the only threat to the group’s peace and prosperity is their own limitless stupidity.

I’m a german girl, but this is not preventing me from watching english movies and series, especially the british ones. ‘Cause I really love this british sense of humour.
So in November 2012, when I rummaged in the internet, I came across the british series “Black Books”. I occupied myself a little closer with it and concluded this is something for me. So I bought this series on DVD. Forwhy my English is not so bad and I own a good english-dictionary, and there is subtitle on the DVD, it’s quite easy for me to follow the plot.

Now the contents:
“Black Books” is the name of a book-shop, which owner is Bernard Black.
Bernard is that kind of person you don’t want to know anymore, if you just got to know him. He is eccentric, pigheaded, grumpy, lazy, he’s lying (especially if it’s to his personal advantage) and he has a low opinion of hygienic – with his shop and flat, and also with his own person. His “hobbies” are drinking (too much wine), smoking and scaring customers out of his shop. He is a person you want to steer clear of. Anyway, he has real good friend: Fran. She lives in the house next to Bernard’s and got a little downstairs decoration-shop. But she’s hanging around in Bernard’s shop almost the whole time, especially when she is unemployed and had to close her shop at beginning of series two. Fran loves drinking wine and smoking every bit as Bernard, but she is more lovely. Therefore she is a bit crazy and chaotic. The third one is Manny. He is an accountant, but got fired from his old job after a “work accident”. At Frans insistence, he started working in the book-shop. And, of course, Bernard had lots of doubts and contradictions but he hired Manny regardless. Manny is courteous, helpful, nice, compassionate and all the opposite of Bernard.

It's just really funny. What more can I say? the characters in it are totally mad. The situations they get into are wonderful. Anyone who enjoyed classic mad-Irishman comedies such as Father Ted and The IT Crowd will love this. I nearly peed myself at the episode where the Bill Bailey character was inside the piano, playing from within with a pair of spoons. And the one where he was eating scrambled egg out if an old shoe. Marvellous!!!!

I don't watch nearly enough TV and this got by me completely. Thankfully a friend put me right, and told me I had to see this. He has admittedly said that about some stuff that I'd happily miss again, but he was dead right about this. I wish there were more series. It would be up to about series 12 by now. If only.

Three well drawn characters well portrayed by three able comic actors.
Surreal, irreverent, full of memorable lines.
Series 4 anyone?

An excellent reminder of just how witty and funny good British television series can be. It may be quirky British humour but in my book, or should that be DVD player?, this is amongst the BEST!!!
