How Can This Not Be Funny ?!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Books - The Complete Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
One reviewer gave this series just 1 * & seemed almost regretting having to do that ! Quite where that reviewers humour lies I really cannot guess. When so much that passes for "humour",either from the UK or the USA,is utter dross with shallow,vacuous & wooden characters churning out lines that could only be responded to by "canned" laughter, Black Books came like a breath of fresh air - well observed,with sharp,acidic yet truely funny script writing. I have watched this with many friends,some who work in either bookshops or record shops, & all could relate to much of the content of these shows & all found it seriously funny. In fact all of us give it 5 ***** !
