From 378 Ratings


The first series one of this outstanding comedy follows the adventures of bookshop owner Bernard, his assistant Manny, and Fran, who works in the new age shop next door. Bizarrely surreal, if you’ve never seen Black Books then you're in for a true comedy treat, particularly in the great contrasting rapport between the curmudgeonly Dylan Moran and the laid-back Bill Bailey, with the hapless Tamsin Greg looking to diffuse the inevitable tensions that arise.

    I love this film it's sooo funny! I watched it like 10 times each! But I bought the whole box set for £8.
  • Excellent Comedy but don

    By Mewcat
    Black Books is indeed as all these people are saying... exceptionally funny, totally genius and guaranteed to have you belly laughing and guffawing and rolling around giggling your socks off, over and over again. This is the result no matter how many times you watch it. However, I purchased the box set containing all 3 series together for just £10 so I would suggest you buy it elsewhere, just remind yourself to pop out and buy it first thing tomorrow!!!!
  • Unbeatable much!

    I swear I have never laughed as hard as when I discovered this years ago. Well done guys and don't hesitate, just buy it. You'll love it.
  • Couldn't be better

    By Ed
    I think that this is one of the most funny thing i've seen on a screen. They couldn't have picked a better actor to play Bernard and having Bill Baly (i have no idea how you spell his name) was just the icing on the big cake that is BLACK BOOKS.
  • Value for monies!

  • fantastic!!!!

    By happy_summercamper
    This truely was a brilliantly funny sitcom, Bernard "ludvic" Black's character is a work of pure drunken genius, this is an absolute bargain at 7.99 for the whole first series! best episode in my opinion is either the one with the security system (worth it for Bernards face when he gets a job in a burger bar!) or the one with the house sitting!
  • prob best channel 4 comedy

    By roflmonster2000
