Black Books

Season 1 (2001)

Complete first series of the situation comedy based on the testing times of Bernard Black (Dylan Moran, who also co-writes), misanthropic bookshop owner extraordinaire. Bernard loves books but hates customers, and his approach to capitalism is only matched by Fran (Tamsin Greig), the owner of the 'Nifty Gifty' giftshop nextdoor. When Bernard's accountant goes on the run he is replaced by oddball accountant Manny Bianco (Bill Bailey) who saves Bernard from the terrors of doing his own book-keeping, and proves a hit with the customers. Further episodes see this mismatched retail duo becoming obsessed with the Sweeney, getting into hot water during some routine house-sitting, and suffer defeat at the hands of the new shop security system.

Season 2 (2003)

Complete second series of the situation comedy based on the testing times of Bernard Black (Dylan Moran, who also co-writes), misanthropic bookshop owner extraordinaire. In 'The Entertainer', ever keen to distract herself, Fran (Tamsin Greig) takes up the piano, ever keen to delude himself, Bernard falls in love, and all Manny (Bill Bailey) wants is a break. 'Fever' sees Fran unable to sleep in the heat, so Bernard helps her by brushing up on the law and finds himself a 'summer bunny'. Meanwhile Manny is worried about the reliability of his magic hot water bottle. In 'The Fixer', Manny uses his underworld connections to find Fran mysterious employment. In return all Bernard and he have to do is educate a psychopath. But will they succeed in teaching dodgy Danny to read? 'Blood' sees an unemployed and restless Fran taking comfort in the discovery of her exotic new found cousins. In pursuit of Michelin stars, Manny and Bernard transform the infested bookshop into a restaurant. In 'Hello Sun', Fran tries to discover her inner karma at the advice of her disapproving friend Eva, and Bernard finds positive proof that Manny is mad. Finally, in 'A Nice Change', Bernard and Manny can't hear themselves argue because of the builders next door, so Fran suggests a holiday. But how will the three of them fare when they attempt to venture abroad together?
