The Bet is a classic sitcom trope. Be it Barney Mille r or be it Seinfeld , there will always be an episode where the action hinges upon a seemingly innocuous bet. It can send characters off in different directions doing things that under most circumstances would strain logic. While a little light in places, Black Books is able to tease out a dark, awkward and extremely funny plot using this well-worn trope. In this episode, Bernard and Fran make a bet. Bernard calls Fran out on her denial. And through it all Manny is just standing there in a worm suit.

Irish comic Dylan Moran stars as Bernard Black with Bill Bailey as Manny and Tamsin Greig as Fran in this quirky British comedy about a bookshop and its morose, frustrated owner who wants nothing more than for customers and staff to leave him alone so he may drink wine and read books. PS: I believe the show is available to view for free on Hulu. The introductory episode is cute, but here we begin to see the true dynamic between shop owner Bernard and his new hire, the eager-to-please rookie bookseller Manny. Bernard proceeds to run Manny through the ringer of trying to sell books to a variety of impossible-to-deal-with clientele, but in the end, Manny finds the truest way to win over his new boss: wine. They part ways, and the chaos begins. Fran and her girlfriends run the gamut of games and food and wine until her night dissolves into accusatory disaster, and Bernard and Manny walk themselves through the process of how to write a book, and then do so, initially with wonderful success, and finally with a terrifying blitz of alcoholic self-sabotage. A case of both parties getting more than they bargained for.
