Critic Reviews for Black Books Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

"Black Books" is as amusing as it is existentially bruising.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Yet the dynamic of Black Books is bizarre from the get-go, coming across almost as if Samuel Beckett wrote a sitcom.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

If you like grumpy, drunken Irish bastards, Bernard Black (Dylan Moran) will soon become your new hero-he sure as shit is mine!

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Black Books remains one of the most memorable comedies of recent years, as much for its wonderful characters as for its endlessly quotable scripts.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

As twisted and alcohol-soaked as it might be, witty writing and a sharp cast make Black Books as much fun as happy hour at the neighborhood pub.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It doesn't sound like a recipe for a deliriously funny romp, but it is.
