A Conversation for 'Blackadder' - the TV Series

As you can see I've just completely contradicted myself with regards to an earlier posting but i feel after considering again the possiblities of another series, it just couldn't be done.

I have to agree. 2nd series is my favourite. What I want to know is why Blackadder slips down the social scale with every new series? Any one any ideas?
I love good British Comedy & although this isn't the right site, my favourite British Comedy is Porridge, Open All Hours or the Good Life. I could watch them all time and again without cringing.

I think i may have said domething oppisite of this earlier, but i have come to think that the ending of goodbyee is a proper ending, and fitting for the final end f the series. i thnk it would be folly to make any more. i rest my case, and apologise if im giving out mixed signals

Got to be Bells (series 2). Or Goodbyeee :'(. Me and my friend spoofed Bells and turned it into Whistles, a guide camp story; very entertaining (for us anyway)

When I first saw "Beer", I laughed so much, my family nearly called an ambulance. It started when Baldrick got the door, and then I couldn't stop. Nursie's hangover cure, Edmund's puritan aunt, the thingy shaped turnip, the beer swilling party guests, the fact that Baldrick has a thingy shaped like a turnip. The writing was just so sharp and hilarious. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the song about goblins.

I'm only a young'un but Blackadder is my favourite comedy ever. It's absolutely classic. every episode is a masterpiece. It's a close one between the third and goes forth for my fave series. I love Melchett in Blackadder goes forth and Goodbyeee is a masterpiece. Gets me crying everytime, when you realise that actually Blackadder's wit isn't going to get him out of it and George saying that he's scared
I love Dual and Duality, the last episode of series 3. Fry is so hilarious as bignose wellington "SHOUTING!"
I'm a huge fan of Rik Mayall in Bottom and his performance as Flasheart is fantastic. I just love all of the episodes

Favourite episode of "BlackAdder"? What a damn hard question!
My favourites of each series:
The Black Adder: "The Archbishop"
Blackadder II: "Chains"
Blackadder the Third: "Ink and Incapability" ("Dish and Dishonesty" and "Nob and Nobility" are very close behind in this one)
Blackadder Goes Forth: "Private Plane" ("Goodbyeee" was close)
Overall favourite would probably be "Private Plane".

Another thing worth noting are my favourite and least favourite seasons:
1st: Blackadder Goes Forth
2nd: Blackadder the Third
3rd: Blackadder II
4th: The Black Adder

The best episode is private plane. flashearts scenes are jus hilarious. the others jus as good.
Flashheart: If word gets out that I'm missing, 500 girls will kill themselves and I wouldn't want them on my conscience - not when they ought to be on my face!

i havent seen many blackadder episodes so i am getting blackadder complete collection for christmas me and my family are going to watch blackadders christmas carol on christmas day.out of the blackadder episodes i have watched the best is probabbly money or nob and nobility.

It has to be "Beer" from series two, it has everything.
Comedy breasts, Queenie humiliation, Lord and Lady White Adder, <> inheritance, "My incredibally strong ale", Great Boo, "Au contrare!" the list goes on and on.
Quite unbeatable! Simply the best.
BA: I want to write some invitations in blood, Baldrick, your blood to be precise.
BALDERS: Will you be wanting me to remove any limbs, my Lord, an arm or a leg?
BA: No, no just a small prick.
BALDERS: (putting his knife down his trousers) Very well, my Lord, I am your bondsman and must obey...
BA: (realising what he's doing) I meant a small prick on your finger!
BALDERS: I haven't got one there!
"Beer" gets my vote every time.
Sorry if this is a bit late... anyone?

For me it would have to be Bells in series 2, there were so many hilarious scenes that I never get bored of watching it. Classic stuff.
insanity.v.genius Posted Nov 17, 2008
close second's got to be the line 'i'm scared', almost dead-pan from the most bouyant character in the trench. not nice.
On a lighter note, any episode (from elizabethan series) with the line 'who's Queen?' has my vote.

I really like the Dictionary episode in III with Samuel Johnson and the Red Rum episode in II with Tom Baker - arrhah hah hahaaaa.
It goes without saying that the last episode in IV is great - funny and sad at the same time. Expertly done.

It is so difficult to choose a favourite episode at times I vary between "Bells" from Blackadder 2 and "Captain Cook" from Blackadder Goes Forth, but honestly there are so many magical moments it is hard to pick an epidode that is not hilarious.
