Episode Summary

EDIT
In this first episode we are introduced to Bernard, the alcoholic Irish book shop owner. But, Bernard has a problem. His taxes need doing, he's mathematically illiterate, and there's no avoiding it. His accountant turns out to be a wanted felon, and has gone on the run, and no one seems to be willing to help him. His salvation could be an exemption clause which gives him an out if he's injured. Fran is busy trying to discover what a particular item in her shop actually is whilst Manny, working as an accountant has an 'incident' with 'The Little Book of Calm'. Their coming together could be the start of a beautiful relationship.moreless
