Black Books - Series 1
/ Series 2 with Dylan Moran, Bill Bailey and Tamsin
Bernard Black (Dylan Moran), proprietor of the
grubby bookshop Black Books, prefers the company of his books to his
customers. Devoted to the twin pleasures of excessive drinking and
wilful antagonism, Bernard enriches his life and the lives of his only
two friends, Manny (Bill Bailey) and Fran (Tamsin Grieg) in the process.
In this second collection of episodes, Bernard finds proof positive that
Manny is mad, Manny worries about the reliability of his magic hot water
bottle and uses his underworld connections to help the recently
unemployed Fran find a job, Fran struggles to find her inner karma in
between trying to find her cigarettes and making excuses to have another
drink. Under constant threat from the nasty, unfeeling outside world,
the characters in Black Books attempt to maintain the haven of
the bookshop even as their own talent for meaningless stupidity pitches
them towards mayhem.
Bernard, the owner of a bookshop, has one major
problem - he hates people - especially his customers. When he offers Manny
Bianco, an accountant, a job during a heavy drinking session, an offer he
grudgingly sticks to the next day, he finds that Manny can be nice to
customers and actually sells some books....
This, the concept of a drunk owning a bookshop,
is surreally funny and possibly the strangest situation comedy ever.
