Couldn't find a thread on this which shocked me horrendously.
It's a comedy starring Dylan Moran, Bill Bailey and Tamsin Greig, which aired on Channel 4 in the UK from September 2000 to April 2004.
From the back of the Complete Collection:
"Black Books centres around the foul tempered and wildly eccentric bookshop owner Bernard Black (Dylan Moran). Bernard's devotion to the twin pleasures of drunkenness and wilful antagonism deepens and enriches both his life and that of Manny (Bill Bailey), his assistant. Bearded, gentle, sweet and good, Manny is everything that Bernard isn't and is punished by Bernard relentlessly just for the crime of existing. They depend on each other for meaning as Fran (Tamsin Greig), their oldest friend, depends on them for distraction.
Black Books is a haven of books, wine and conversation, the only threat to the group's peace and prosperity is their own limitless stupidity."
I love this series, every episode of the three series' has me laughing so hard. There must be some other fans on here!
There'll be clips on YouTube. Just search for "black books" funnily enough.
