Blackadder thread

Black Rose

Recommended Posts

Nobody else will fuse intelligent writing with potty jokes in such convincing fashion ever again... Throw in some legendary performances and fantastic on screen chemistry, and Blackadder is a unique triumph in British television history.


In my opinion, the show improved with every series, ending with the most brilliant moment of dramatic irony:


Captain Darling: I say, listen - our guns have stopped.

Lieutenant George: You don't think...

Private Baldrick: Perhaps the war's over. Perhaps it's peace.

Captain Darling: Thank God. We lived through it. The Great War, 1914 to 1917.


*Cue collective groan from the audience*

Whatever they say, one of the greatest endings to a tv series:

Makes you miss the old roman-numbers system they put on the end of TV shows to show what year they were made, instead of something like MCMLXXXIX these days it's MMVIII

Good documentary on Blackadder, with interviews with all the cast that was on telly Christmas night.


Blackadder Rides Again, and with some rather good music at 57 seconds
