Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Patricia Kim O'Cone
A self-proclaimed "situation tragedy," Black Adder is the boisterous brainchild of British comic actors Rowan Atkinson in his biggest triumph pre-Mr. Bean and Richard Curtis Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral. Originally aired between 1983 and '89, Black Adder spans a tarnished family legacy set in four different centuries over four different series. The first series, The Black Adder, takes place during the darkest part of the Dark Ages 15th-century England and introduces the wickedly funny misadventures of the terminally treacherous Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh a.k.a. "The Black Adder," played by Atkinson. At his sinister side is the never-faithful scalawag Baldrick, played to the hilt by Tony Robinson. Black Adder II, the aptly named second series, spans 1558-1603 and finds the nasty genes of the Blackadder dynasty resurfacing in the Renaissance as Lord Edmund continually searches for grace and favor from the raving-mad Queen Bess Miranda Richardson. Accompanied as always by the blackhearted Baldrick, the dastardly Blackadder tarnishes the reputation of England's Golden Age, with some hilarious hijinks along the way supplied by Jeeves and Wooster's Stephen Fry. Series 3, or Black Adder the Third, is set in 1768-1815, a time of great wealth, power, and discovery -- although not for Edmund Blackadder, Esq. The fortunes of the previously aristocratic Blackadder family have slumped, and Edmund is now butler to the pea-brained Prince Regent Jeeves's Hugh Laurie, who also appears in Series 2. A Christmas special set in Victorian London about the story of Ebenezer Blackadder serves as a jolly segue to the fourth and final series, Blackadder Goes Forth, which places Edmond on the Western Front in 1917. Disorder climbs the ranks as numbskull Captain Blackadder stumbles onto the battlefields of World War I only to discover that people are actually trying to kill him. Fry and Laurie return in unforgettable roles, and Tim McInnerny appears as Captain Kevin Darling. Under the guise of its superior wit, Black Adder carries a sharp social commentary on an integral part of British culture -- family legacy -- as the distinguished Blackadder name proves to add nothing but shame to the nation throughout the centuries -- albeit with some great humor.

    Very funny

    This series is one of the best. If you like British comedy, you will love this. He tries to be evil, but just brings shame to family and country. Very entertaining, addicting, and scary lol.
