The highly acclaimed final series finds a world-weary Captain Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) stationed on the Western Front during World War I. Having joined the British Army when it was little more than a travel agency for gentlemen with an abnormally high sex drive, he's not overjoyed to be in the trenches facing four million German machine guns. It would be slightly more bearable if General Melchett's battle plans were less suicidal and if Private Baldrick's cooking wasn't confined to rat.
Season 3 of this classic comedy starring Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson sees the fortunes of the Blackadder family somewhat in decline with the advent of the Regency period. Edmund is now butler and confidante to George, the Prince Regent, a dandified dunderhead who can't even figure out how to put on his own pantaloons. But it's an ideal opportunity for Blackadder to make buckets of cash, and even become Prince Regent himself. Unfortunately, he veers from calamity to disaster with little in the way of constructive help from his imbecilic Lord and Master -- or Baldrick, of whom the least said the better.
Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean, Johnny English) and Tony Robinson star in this classic comedy that re-writes the annals of history. The Blackadder saga begins with a medieval tale of disaster and drollery. Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh, is the slimy and much-despised younger son of King Richard IV. Haunted by his uncle Richard III whom he killed by mistake, he lurks in the castle corridors of power, scheming to get the better of his splendid elder brother, Harry.
Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson and Stephen Fry star in this classic comedy that re-writes the annals of history. Now a favorite at the Court of Elizabeth I, Edmund Blackadder keeps his head from being chopped off by the capricious Queen with rapier-sharp wit, cunning and bravado. Meanwhile, his rival Lord Melchett loses no opportunity to try to disgrace him. Once again Blackadder is accompanied by a small rabble of riff-raff, including bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brained Percy, together they manage to lower the whole tone of England's Golden Age.
Charles Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth, and virtue is completely ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. It's Christmas Eve, and just as Ebenezer Blackadder is going to bed, his loathsome relatives decide to visit. The special includes visits from the Victorian Blackadder joined by the Elizabethan, Regency, and the Space Age members of this infamous dynasty.
