I would just like to see Dylan Moran on our screens again.
And Bill Bailey and Tamsin Grieg, naturally.
Perhaps they could all work together on something new. But we need some Dylan.

But Dylan as Bernard Black is his most fanciable incarnation...

Got quite amused the other day as someone signed the museum visitors' book as "Bernard Black, Bookshop Owner from Ireland". I felt I should've made friends with them... :D

I have to say Bernard is the most fanciable for me. I like the fact he's completely nuts
Is that why i have to wash my face with a potato?

I can kinda see the good points about both ;)

RE: Black Books series 3 - yeah, it's not the best, but I'm still enjoying it. I'll have to get some screencaps from the DVD when I get a chance ;)

I love all the series made. Series 2 is the funniest of the lot though.

I can actually never remember which episodes are in which series as I've seen them all at random... I think I find most of Black Books a bit hit and miss - sometimes it's really funny, sometimes not so, but it's always watchable.

The one in series 3 where Dylan thinks his ex girlfriend is dead. :cry:
That's the main reason I want to get around to buying that series. Bless his little cotton socks.

Aaw, yeah, poor Bernard...

I finally finished watching Series 3, hehe. It was all right, although series 1 will always be my favourite ;)

I got some screencaps from the "outtakes", this one was my favourite, it's kinda sweet:

Aaw ;)

I was watching those out-takes the other day and got a bit jealous.


The episode where he thinks his ex is dead is so sad, when he says 'I had a girlfriend once .. she died' i was like :cry: :cry: :cry:
