5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime comedy, 3 Oct 2006

This review is from: Black Books: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
This third series is as good the first two series if not better.

The opening episode is one of the best of all. A competitor bookshop 'Goliath Books' has opened next door and Manny (Bill Bailey) is now working there. He left 'Black Books' after his hand was burnt by Bernard. Simon Pegg plays the Manager of Goliath books and really adds another dimension to the show. Shame he couldn't have done more. This episode is absolutely brilliant and I must have watched 8 or 9 time now.

The episode 'Moo-Ma and Moo-Pa' contains perhaps the most surreal moment of the entire series when Bernard and Fran go a under a dinner table in a restaurant to pick up a piece of cutlery and there is a whole bar under the table! In case you hadn't worked it out Moo-Ma and Moo-Pa are Manny's parents who come down to visit, much to Bernards disgust.

Sadly there is no commentary on the series 3 disc. The commentaries on series 1 & 2 were almost as good as the shows themselves. However the out-takes and deleted scenes are good, and as whole the DVD easily merits 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely Brilliant, 1 Jan 2007

The ingredients of superb casting, great script writing, a touch of surrealism and some brilliant classic slap stick moments make this make this a shear delight. Not many comedies make you laught out loud when you watch them by yourself - this one does and it delivers the laughs by the bucket full in all three series.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as series 1 and 2, 24 Feb 2012
This review is from: Black Books: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I absolutely love this series, it had me laughing from the opening scene (where Manny has gone to work for a competitor next door) to the every end. I'm just sad there are no more to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable! I love it!, 13 April 2011
This review is from: Black Books: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I bought Series 1 & 2 of Black Books first and was absolutely thrilled when I learnt that Series 3 had been released.

I am very pleased that Amazon delivered my order in good time and in excellent condition.

As for the contents of the series, I could not possibly add more to the accolades which the other reviewers have given. There are some very sharp lines and the actors delivered them well. The humour will appeal to more mature audiences and the cynics in us.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new breed of comedy, 4 Oct 2006

Dylan Moran. Bill Bailey. Anyone who knows what these names mean and what it means when they come together would probably scream in delight and excrete some sort of magical fluid. And rightly so. For this series has not disappointed the Black books, Bailey and Moran fans out there with its unique style of side splitting, pants pissing comedy. Though maybe a bit esoteric (it only ranked about 54 in the 100 greatest British sitcoms) and with slightly rusty acting, the lunatic humour is still very much apparent and I feel it belongs up there with Father Ted and the other great ridiculous comedies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Show but DVD does not work, 23 Oct 2006
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Books: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
The Show is great an very funny but I have found that with some of the DVD's one of the episodes jumps at the begining. This means that the first part is unwatchable. The Rest of the DVD is fine. This is true though out the range beacsue i have had it replaced and have the 3 serise box set whihc has the same problem. But apart from that it is all great.
