Blackadder- 1980s Television BBC show


Who's heard of it...

sad and funny show starring Rowan Atkinson(Mr. Bean)

Season 1- Start of the Tudor Era
Season 2- Queen Elizabeth 1st
Season 3- Napoleonic Era ( King George )
Season 4- World War 1

I hate the part in Season 4 when the big push happens...It sad

Re: Blackadder- 1980s Television BBC show


The quotes are the best:
"Love thy neighbor, unless he's Turkish, in which case kill the bastard!"

"Baldrick, your brain is like the four headed, man-eating haddock fish beast of Aberdeen"
"In what way? "
"It doesn't exist "

"Ah, Blackadder. Started talking to yourself, I see."
"Yes...it's the only way I can be assured of intelligent conversation."

-I always thought that Jamie and Angus were such fine boys.
-Angus is a girl."

" -I want you to take the place of the Prince Regent and kill the Duke of Wellington in a duel.
-And what's in it for me?
-Enough cash to buy the outer Hebrides. What do you think?
