What kind of comedy would you expect to come from a book store? I mean, you’re supposed to be quiet in a book store, so other people can browse in peace. Anything loud and irritating is disallowed in a sacred temple of knowledge and sophisticated entertainment. Unless this book store is run by Bernhard L. Black.
The comedy concept is very straight forward: awkward situations, misanthropy, drunkenness, incompetence. Sex and relationships are used very sparingly, unlike any Comedy run by Mr. Sheen. But Black Books pulls it off pretty well. But they’re British, the masters of Comedy.
