Black Books

A great british television series starring comedians Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey and actress Tamsin Greig. It was a very funny comedy series about a book store. All the actors are very authentic which makes it so funny. If you haven't seen it, try to. Otherwise you're really missing out. It has 3 seasons.

Review

The series revolves around Bernard's loathing of the outside world and all the people who inhabit it, except his oldest friend, Fran Katzenjammer. Bernard displays little enthusiasm or interest in retail (or, indeed, anything outside drinking, smoking and reading) and refuses to interact with anyone outside his bookshop, or even inside, as Bernard has a personal hatred of customers. Many episodes are driven by Manny and Fran's attempts to force him into a more socially acceptable lifestyle. However, despite their attempts, and Manny's strong social skills, their efforts usually result in chaos, sucking them back into Bernard's nihilistic view of the world.
The series is notable for its surreal and off-beat sense of humour, particularly when regarding the state of the shop: it is frequently depicted to be in an unhealthy state of dirtiness
