5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Book, 18 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Books - The Complete Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
"I ate all your bees!"

I caught this episode once on TV (and now fortunately on Dave, Result!) and I had no idea what it was. Many of the cast I had never heard of before, except Bill Bailey and I found it quite funny, but I wasn't rolling around the floor. Never the less, I had to know more and it took me the best part of a year to find out what the programme was another 6 months to actually buy it. I put in my DVD stand and left it well alone until my fiancée suggested we watch it as we had never seen it before.

I'm such a fool, I let this slip by for YEARS! My love affair with Black Books began in August 2009 and I have exposed its brilliance to many of my friends and people I work with, however I won't lend them my copy for fear of the disc being scratched.

Its pure comedy brilliance. I was already a fan of Bill Bailey, have been a keen follower of Dylan Moran for a long time (I totally forgot he was in Black Books when I bought the DVD all that time ago) and love most things written by Graeme Linen. What makes this a special comedy for me is I found it very sarcastic and insulting. The best type of comedy in my opinion. Dylan Moran always appears drunk, grouchy, messy and against all things polite, where as Bill Bailey takes the abuse and Tamsin Greig sits in the middle, even though drink is flying around Dylan and Tamsin constantly. If you doubt how hilarious this show is, it had a 3 series run, more could be made but Dylan decided against it (end on a high) and is very much loved by lots. Watch the episode with the expensive wine or first episode if season 1.
