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..

Not what I expectedBy a customer from Todmorden , 24 Jul 2008Not as funny as I expected. I normally love this kind of series & I think Rowen is great normally.
Can't wait.By JamesT (101 reviews) from Chorley , 13 Jul 2008I cannot get enough of Rowan Atkinson in the Blackadder series.
Once you have seen one then you have to see them all.
Hope he plays a good Fagin in Oliver next year - sure he will - booked in for February.
