5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent British (Irish?) humour, 12 May 2009
This review is from: Black Books - The Complete Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
This is possibly one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. Totally politically incorrect, anti-social comedy at it's best! It compares well with Fawlty Towers in my estimation, and proves that humour does not have to be formulaic to be successful. Haven't we all felt like Bernard when trying to complete a tax questionnaire? Bernard chasing customers out of his bookshop with a broom and licking a frozen ice-lolly bottle of wine during a heatwave are just two of the classic scenes that stick in my head.

Series one and two are hilarious, but by series three it becomes apparent that the writers were getting a bit short of fresh ideas as the humour doesn't flow so fast and furiously, but there are still some good moments. Having said that, it is still most excellent value for money and knocks spots off other contemporary British shows masquerading as comedy. Buy this one, you won't regret it!
