I Don't Watch a Lot of Television but...

The three eldest Coles are watching loads of Black Books at the moment. I picked up the second and third series on DVD pretty cheaply in Tescos a couple of weeks ago and gave my son the first for his birthday last weekend. There are echoes of Father Ted in the writing – Series One was co-written by Graham Linehan - but the quirky farces and the unflattering characters that permeate the plots really work well and bear favourable comparison with the Craggy Island-based sitcom. I laugh out loud a lot when I watch it and, on occasions, guffaw.
