I Love Manny's Sincerity
16 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is such a quirky series. We are never to ask why a man who hates books and customers and all the stuff that goes with running a bookstore would own one. In this one, Manny is asked to come work for Bernard who can't remember asking him. After he starts the job there are a series of hilarious events, including the job interview. Also, whenever customers arrive, they are abused and shouted at. Manny has a more conventional view of business. Fran, of course, is also in her own world. This hilarious little comedy is delightful and original.
