For me it's always been Blackadder II which has just been repeated, but I wish they hadn't all been killed off at the end.

Is that the one with Miranda Richardson and Stephen Fry, that's my favourite series.

Yes II was set in Elizabethan England with Queenie.

I also thought Rowan Atkinson was quite dashing in his tights & codpiece, I find it very hard to equate Edmund Blackadder with Mr Bean (who I just find cringeworthy).

I liked the first one, but I fancy the elizabethan one wink.

Definitely 2, he's hot grin

But I do like 3 and 4.

Blackadder 2.

Especially the one where Blackadder says 'the path of my life is strewn with cowpats from the devil's own satanic HERD' grin

We are not at home to Mr cock up! grin

But DSs will be forced to sit through Blackadder Goes Forth as an educational exercise one day.

I liked the one with RA the best!

PseudoBadger Thu 06-Sep-12 20:48:24

I'm currently teaching DS the words to Boom Boom Boom Boom grin

I loved the Queen Elizabeth 1st series the best .

DH went on Mastermind about black adder :-D

I love Black Adder 3, although I do have a certain fondness for the 1sr series. I think I've watched Black Adder 2 too many times to like it in the same way as I do 3. Although the episode with the puritan Aunt and the drinking contest would definitely be my favorite episode.

LordFlasheart Thu 06-Sep-12 20:56:34

I see you've heard of me, Doilooklikeatourist. Like the beard, gives me something to hang on to...

Particular the one where Baldrick burns Dr. Johnson's manuscript

"Baldrick, believe me, eternity in the company of Beelzebub and all his hellish instruments of death will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me and this pencil if we can't replace this dictionary."

2 is my favourite.

1 isn't as funny as the others, the last episode of 4 is the best individual episode though, I think.

Kveta Thu 06-Sep-12 20:58:34


I may have misunderstood the question.

I loved all 4 series, couldn't identify a favourite, but could quote much of each episode!

Vickles Thu 06-Sep-12 20:58:45

Anti distinctly minty!

In this order;

I too have seen the second series so often that I can recite every line. Like the foppery of III.
