HA! Shaun of The Dead's Dylan Moran(david) along with cameo's from some of the films cast and the cast of the series Spaced. Bill Bailey is hilarous. Great series, likable irreverent characters.

Unsurpassable black humour and sarcasm combined with genius witty texts. Unique and original. Haven't seen anything better since. This is a real comedy, not all that sh*t that's out there now. Seems like everyone is afraid to call things the way they are. Definitely 10/10

Another awesome show by Graham Linehan! Check out The IT Crowd if you like this one, it's more "laugh out loud" than Black Books, but both great shows!

I love this show so much! There is not a bad episode at all! It's such a quotable show! "You know what you are, you're a beard with an idiot hanging off it!" Cannot find anyone better than Dylan Moran to play that part!

He looks like he’s swallowed a cup of sour milk and urinated on himself at the same time. He has this green bilious expression; years of displeasure have shaped his face. In fact he looks like every other second hand bookshop owner I’ve seen. It seems to go with the job - being miserable. The misanthropic cynicism of the chain-smoking Bernard Black (Dylan Moran), irrepressibly obsequious and good-natured Manny Bianco (Bill Bailey), and the man-hungry, wine-enthusiast, Fran Katzenjammer (Tamsin Greig), combine to offer us a thoroughly droll blend of slapstick, rapid fire dialogue and off-beat surrealism. Strongly reminiscent of the much loved "Fawlty Towers" and ‘Monty Python’ in its mode and the overt nihilism of the lead character, Black Books flaunts diverse and stylised humour, plying witty and sophisticated utilisation of language, physicality and circumstantial comedy.

Very funny show! Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey Are a great team. Simon Pegg even shows up for a few episodes. This is another one of those shows that I feel could have, and should have gone on a lot longer.

First series very good if you like cynical comedy...but the ones after that are lame and juvenile.
