Black Books

I don't know if I've posted about Black Books but like a lot of BBC comedies, it is awesome. For those people that haven't seen it make sure you get your hands on it soon because you are missing out.
Other british comedies I enjoy include The Office, Little Britain, Shaun of The Dead and I am slowly learning to like The Young Ones.

Its been a long time since I watched Black Books probably because it was continually playing when I lived at Woodstock Crt.
I remember walking home with Turtlelips and Tom one night when we'd been drinking and I think all we said to each other was 'can I have a ham sandwich...with pickles?" (insert ham and pickle face here). But you'd have to watch the first episode of the show to get that one!

I'm going to have stick some quotes in here I think.

Fran: You could use somebody normal around here.
Bernard: Normal?! Normal, is he? Well, what am I then?
Fran: Well, you're a freak, Bernard, you know that.
Bernard: Yes, I know! ... BUT I HAVE RIGHTS!

Bernard: [To Manny] You know what you are? You're a beard with an idiot hanging off it.

And the one that reminds me most of living with Turtlelips...

Bernard: Mustn't stare, mustn't stare.
Fran: You haven't stared at me.
Bernard: You're my oldest friend. Anyway, you look like you just fell out of a tree.

he he.

p.s. I pinched the quotes from 'wikiquotes'.

Jen - I recommend you track down Spaced.

Made by the guys who made Shaun, and filled with the same merry-go-round of actors in everything else.

Of course, i have both series of Spaced on DVD.... not that, that's of any use to you...
