Next Episode of Black Books is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Black Books is a second-hand bookshop in London run by an Irishman named Bernard Black. He is probably the planet's worst-suited person to run such an establishment: he makes no effort to sell, closes at strange hours on a whim, is in a perpetual alcoholic stupor, abhors his customers (sometimes physically abusing them) and is often comatose at his desk. Help comes in the lumpy shape of Manny Bianco, a hairy, bumbling individual who (almost by osmosis) becomes Bernard's assistant. Manny is not exactly great at the job either but he is a million times better than Bernard. Next door is Fran, an anxious, frustrated woman who runs a sort of new-age shop selling the most unlikely bits of arty junk. Fran is friends with Bernard and, through him, with Manny; together the trio become embroiled in escapades that are sometimes extreme or violent or fantastically ludicrous, and always bizarre.
When his dodgy accountant goes on the run, Bernard has to fill in his own tax return, which isn't easy when you're mathematically illiterate. Perhaps some sort of crippling injury is the way out?
Bernard, having offered Manny the job while he was drunk, does his best to get rid of his new charge by offering him a one-day trial. Is this suspiciously modern-looking assistant up to scratch?
The discomforting presence in the bookshop of an oddly sensual cleaner forces Bernard and Manny to accept a house-sitting job, where they drink an unbelievably expensive bottle of wine
Manny gets hyper after a night of drinking too many espressos and watching an entire box-set of The Sweeney, and is mistaken for a policeman when he gives high-speed chase to a bagsnatcher
When a new security system that neither Bernard nor Manny can operate is installed in the shop, Bernard ends up locked out for the evening, while Manny is locked in
Manny becomes a runaway when Bernard's relentless bossiness gets too much for him. But life is tough on the street, so when a photographer offers him a place to stay he's happy to take up the offer.
