It was possibly Withwine or me. Since it's one of our favourite things ever. Bernard Black is one of my idols. :thumbup:

Did you manage to get all three series? You can pick up the box set pretty cheaply I think, I'd definately recommed buying it.

If you like Black Books, check out the sitcom Dylan Moran did before it with Charlotte Coleman, called How Do You Want Me? It's just as brilliant.

so far I liked the piano episode best.

also, why - in the heat wave ep - was the temp in F? unless he really meant 88C, which I doubt.

Most people over the age of 40 use Fahrenheit. It's only really my generation and younger who use Celsius.

Really? In the UK? I find that odd.

Here in the Cape Colony, where English-speaking culture is, obviously, Anglophile, we use Celsius. My parents used, in the old days, the Imperial system - pounds and ounces, pints and gallons, and pounds and shillings, etc. - but never Fahrenheit. Our old oven, mind you, was marked in both.

The UK is the only country in the world where you can go into a timber yard and buy 3 metres of 4"x2". Distances are all miles, beer is in pints and until the 1970s there were 240 pence in a pound. Cheese is in grams and milk can be pints or litres. We are a country with one foot firmly in our imperial past and one in our European present.

Ok, yes, that is a muddle. Although, I still speak about inches and feet, but use a metric tape measure.
