Creator: Dylan Moran
Released: 2000 – 2004
Black Books is about Bernard Black, a book shop owner, and his two friends Fran and Manny. This comedy show shows what it’s like to have a friend who loves books but hates running a business, hates customers, hates people in general, … well you get the idea. He hates a lot of things. But this show is one that nowadays people don’t talk about. It is without a doubt one of those gems that time seems to have thrown away, but has not seemed to have aged one bit. From trying to turn the shop into a restaurant to Bernard himself getting into a £10,000 dept with a poker club, you are promised to get a good laugh out of his character.
