Does anyone know/like this brilliant show?

I know it's a kinda old show but I never knew about it until a couple of months ago. I just bought 3 seasons on DVD and it's just fucking brilliant!

For anyone who has never seen it... here are the first couple of minutes of the very first episode. Just... Brilliant :D

I haven't watched it much, but any time I have I've enjoyed it alot, I seen Dylan Moran live a few months ago, he was brilliant.

You know what's always disturbed me about these kinds of shows? The laughter in the background. I just can't get used to it. It disturbs me.

No it isn't. Well... at least I think it's way better then any average comedy show.

And is the crap in your signature an example of their brilliance?

Some of its jokes are great, the majority of it isn't overly funny. Its good, but there is better out there.

PiB is a sad Brit with no real appreciation for British humor. I cry tears for him every night.

BB is great. I'm definitely getting the DVD box myself very soon. I am not the biggest fan of laugh-tracked comedy in general, but it often doesn't seem to matter with BB, it cracks me up so much I don't even hear the laugh-track (though I *think* BB may be filmed in front of a live audience, don't quote me on it, though).

It's one of those comedies where even the most bizarre situations seem to make sense.

Half of the show is brilliant, half of the jokes are so painfully stupid and unfunny they make me want to cry.

Watching black books with somebody and watching to see which jokes they laugh at is the ultimate way to gauge somebodies personality.

BuddyHolly fails, by the way.

It is filmed in front of a live audience, you can hear that clearly in the outtakes on the dvd's

I showed everyone in another thread what happens when you search for "Black Books" on Limewire. For those of you who missed it..

:[ My eyes, they burn.

Also, this is quite funny. I know it has nothing to do with the topic at hand, but it's funny.
