YMMV: Black Books
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • The moment where Bernard and Fran duck under their restaurant table to find a miniature bar, complete with bartender, quite literally under everyone's feet is surreal even by this show's standards. They barely even acknowledge it, preferring to have an argument about how boring their dinner conversation with Manny's parents is.
    • The fly in Manny's First Day. It comes in, interrupting their conversation, lands on Bernard's desk for two seconds, then gets up and flies away, shutting the door behind itself....somehow. Then Bernard and Manny immediately resume their conversation.
  • Foe Yay:
    • Manny and Bernard. Parodied in a few early episodes.
    • Also between Bernard and the hired cleaner, who turns cleaning Bernard's dusty cups rather... suggestive.
  • Ho Yay:
    • Manny and Bernard towards Jason.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Bernard.
  • Seasonal Rot: Graham Linehan left after the first season, and while the show was still funny, it didn't reach the rapid-fire insanity and crude misanthropy of season 1note  nearly as often.
