Written by the genius Richard Curtis and starring every single comedic actor worth their salt, Blackadder was *the* show to watch. I loved it, Rowan Atkinson's delivery was pitch perfect as the scheming Blackadder, Baldrick, his man-servant was hilarious and Stephen Fry (UK National Treasure) was his usual perfection. Throw in Hugh Laurie, some of the best plots and writing ever seen in UK comedy (and the UK does fabulous comedy) and it was the hit it deserved to be! Love, love, love.

What a bastion of British humour. Jokes and hilarity at every turn.

Just never did it for me. I think i like a slightly more polished delivery. Who knows it just never struck a chord.

One of the all time greats of classic British comedy. Rowan Atkinson as the ever scheming Blackadder throughout the ages. A truly timeless show that will never fail to make you laugh no matter how many times you watch.

An excellent example of british comedy with a cast that has an amazing chemistry and the uncanny appearance of being a stage show instead of tv.

A good British comedy, although for me personally I mainly only enjoyed season 4.

The show's a classic, which is why you continue to watch even though the comedy is a little dated. The first Blackadder isn't anything special, and the second is pretty good, but Blackadder 3 and 4 are the best. Blackadder 4 is actually quite brilliant.
