England 1558-1603. The filthy genes of the Black Adder dynasty bubble back to the surface of the melting pot of history as Lord Edmund, arrogant peer-about-town, swaggers back with a big head and small beard in search of grace and favour from stark raving mad Queen Bess.
Accompanied by a small rabble of be-ruffed riff-raff - bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brained Percy - the serpentine Lord Black Adder lowers the whole tone of England's Golden Age.
Contains all 6 episodes in the second season:
Entire third series of the historic sitcom, which finds a Regency Edmund Blackadder employed as butler to the Prince Regent (Hugh Laurie), who is thicker than a whale omelette. In 'Dish and Dishonesty', Blackadder enters the world of politics while his master teeters on the brink of bankrupcy. 'Ink and Incapability' sees the rubber-faced one in a bit of a fix when his odorous manservant Baldrick (Tony Robinson) burns the only existing copy of Doctor Johnson's brand new dictionary. In 'Nob and Nobility', Edmund reluctantly turns adventurer when he agrees to rescue a French aristo in return for a huge wodge of cash. 'Sense and Senility' finds Edmund ousted from the Prince's favour when the latter takes elocution lessons from a pair of overly mannered thespians. In 'Amy and Amiability', the Prince finds true love and Blackadder finds that the lif eof a highwayman is not all it is cracked up to be. Finally, in 'Duel and Duality', the Prince puts hi sfoot in it when he soils a couple of Wellingtons, and Blackadder is forced to take his place in a duel to the death with a large-nosed Duke.
The entire first series of the historical sitcom, created by Rowan Atkinson, Richard Curtis and Ben Elton. Atkinson plays the scheming member of a 15th century royal court, with Tony Robinson as his witless sidekick Baldrick. The episodes are 'The Foretelling', 'Born to Be King', 'The Archbishop', 'The Queen of Spain's Beard', 'Witchsmeller Pursuivant' and 'The Black Seal'.
Charles Dickens' famous 'Christmas Carol' story told in the celebrated 'Blackadder' style. Ebeneezer Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) is the loveliest, kindest man in all of Christendom, until the Ghost of Christmas (Robbie Coltrane) pays him a visit and shows him the wicked ways of his ancestors. Among the many miscreants encountered in this parade of festive infamy, we meet Blackadder II, who plays a Christmas death warrant trick on Lord Melchett, and butler Edmund Blackadder, who attempts to con Prince George into giving him all his Christmas presents.
