Definitely the best of...By skeadugenga (148 reviews) from Reading , 20 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Definitely the best of the Blackadders when it hit TV because it was so stunningly original (lets write a sitcom about Richard 111 - hmmm). And because of the great comic creation of Baldrick - the family obviously peaked around 1485 and went downhill after that. So many highlights that you can't think of only one without it setting off a list. Still brilliant. Especially Elspeth Gray as the Queen...and the Black Russian codpiece...and the Infanta of Spain..and the baby eating bishop of Bath and Wells...and Percy...and... Oh, and its all true about Henry V11 - he was a wimp who hid at the back of the battlefield..

Blackadder Series 1By gillfry (30 reviews) from Blyth , 19 Apr 2009Not the best of the Blackadder series but definitely one to watch all the same.
Blackadder 1By a customer from West Malling , 04 Mar 2009Completely different from the later Blackadders but very funny. Excellent cast & many more characters.
The first seriesBy a customer from Bathgate , 30 Jan 2009It is OK, but the following series' are superior
Blackadder series 1By a customer from St. Andrews , 29 Jan 2009Fabulous! A wonderful foray of irony and nonsense. I suppose you have to have this humour to appreciate it fully.
Blackadder series !By a customer from Oxford , 22 Jan 2009A bit of a reversal of later Blackadders as Baldrick is clever and Blackadder is pretty thick. Still pretty amusing though.
