This hi­lar­i­ous off­beat sit­com, which first screened in Bri­tain in the early 2000s, stars co­me­di­ans Dy­lan Mo­ran and Bill Bai­ley and that won­der­fully acer­bic ac­tress Tam­sin Greig. It is now trend­ing on this stream­ing ser­vice, gain­ing new fans for Mo­ran’s ec­cen­tric, ni­hilis­tic Lon­don book­shop owner Bernard Black and his dour put-upon off­siders. Creator Mo­ran said of the con­cept: “We just wanted to cram as much elab­o­rate stu­pid­ity into a half-hour that could make it be co­her­ent and that you would be­lieve.” He got that right.
