After putting off seeing this show for ages I was delighted by it. The acting is fantastic, the writing hilarious. Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey work each other brilliantly delivering their lines with excellent timing. The incidental guest stars are brilliant, including Martin Freeman (Love Actually) and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz).
Not many comedies will have you sore from laughing so much but this does. If you are a fan of such British shows as Red Dwarf and BlackAdder you should really enjoy Black Books!
