Like a skidmark through history the Edmund Blackadders left an indelible dirty stain on every era they passed through. No one knows where the notorious Blackadder family originated from - some say the shallow end of the gene pool, others just nod and point to the cess-pit behind the pig-sheds.

Every new era produces a more contemptuous Edmund Blackadder, each incarnation bearing a striking resemblance to the last, carrying forward the family traditions of cowardice, treachery and political corruption. Accompanying each generation of Edmund Blackadders is the 'Baldrick' family, a loyal breed of human pack-animal and the byword for all things stupid.

Blackadder's Christmas Carol: 'A Christmas Carol' Blackadder-style. Bet you can't guess who the Scrooge is?

Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth and virtue completely mucked up and ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Also Baldrick, of course, the man you can rely on to turn a Christmas dinner into a dog's dinner, as long as the dog isn't particularly fussy. Stuffed with deeply horrid people (many of whom are gigantically fat) and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze in not only a Victorian Black Adder but also his famous Elizabethan, Regency and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment that will satisfy all but the most discriminating viewers.

Blackadder - Back And Forth: It's New Year's Eve 1999 and Lord Edmund Blackadder and friends are gathered to celebrate the Millennium. Blackadder discloses he has built a time machine - and to prove it works he proposes a wager of £10,000 to anyone who cares to name an historical object for him to collect on his journey through time... Blackadder bids his friends farewell and steps into the time machine and he and Baldrick set upon a journey spanning centuries.

 An amazing piece of comic genius - everyone should see this

| | See all cartercarter's reviews (9)

Having first watched Series 4 of Blackadder after finding it amongst my dad's DVD collection one rainy Sunday, my immediate thought was 'this is going to be boring'. How tremendously wrong I was. I have never watched such a brilliant piece of comedy - nothing has ever made me laugh so much out loud (and that's saying something). This amazing saga proves that Ben Elton and Richard Curtis have more than a flair for writing comedy - the pair are genius. After watching the fourth series a large amount of times, I was given the entire collection for Christmas in 2007. I have yet to tire of the witty jokes and brilliant acting - the entire cast (particularly series 2&4) are more than highly commendable. Rowan Atkinson is purely awesome, Tony Robinson a delight, Stephen Fry proves he deserves the term 'national treasure' (as always), Hugh Laurie is brilliant fun and Tim McInnerny is simply hilarious. Other actors in the other series such as Miranda Richardson and Robbie Coltrane contribute wonderfully. I must say that the second and fourth series outshine the others. The first series, overall, is mediocre - however Brian Blessed is brilliant in the first episode. Blackadder's change of characteristics in the 2nd series were needed and improved my thoughts on the saga greatly. The christmas and millenium specials do Blackadder justice and both contain unmissable comedy. Overall, this is an utterly unmissable, classic and wonderful comedy collection.

 Best thing i ever bought

I bought this product for my brother for his birthday present and he says its the best thing ive ever gotten him! I was curious about it myself, i never watched it or gave it a second thought when my brother quoted from Blackadder, then after it was delivered i started watchin them i honestly could not stop laughing, its great if u need to kill a bit of time just stick on an episode or two and ull be in stitches!. However my least favourite season was season 1 i didnt think the directors got the jist of the sotryline until season 2 which is one of my favourites.

 The Complete Blackadder Dynasty.

| | See all ArmchairPundit's reviews (22)

For years I loved Monty Python, and still do. Then one day along came Blackadder
The Blackadder. (Medieval era.)
I must admit this First series written by Richard Curtiss and Rowan Atkinson, did little to change my views that Python Rules. Although I did like the episode, "The Queen of Spains Beard" but all that changed with series two.
Six episodes.
The writers were now Richard Curtiss and Ben Elton.
Blackadder 2.(Elizabethan era.)
I love the way that two of the stories tip the wink towards Python, Tom Bakers Pirate has a "Dead Parrot" on his shoulder. And in the last episode, "Chains" Blackadder mentions "The Spanish Inquistion".
Six episodes.
Blackadder 3.(Regency era.)
This is my favourite series mainly because of Robbie Coltrane's Dr Johnson portrayal in the episode Ink and Inculpability, no matter how many times I see that, "Dream" sequence I crack up.
"Baldrick who gave you permission to turn into an Alsatian".
Six episodes.
Blackadder 4.(World War 1.)
This series has many great sequences too. I particulary like the episode with Rik Mayall as the glamourous flyer Flashheart. Who keeps calling Blackadder slack bladder. And, the Ending of episode six still brings a lump to my throat even after all the times I've watched it.
Six episodes.
Also included in this release is the Christmas episode which parodies, "A Christmas Carol", and, "Back and Forth" where Baldrick has invented of all things a time machine!. There's also a host of extras.
Come and watch the changing fortunes of the Blackadder dynasty through the ages. In the first two series he's riding high in society. Then somewhere between series 2 and 3 his family fortunes must have taken a tumble. As he is no longer almost equal to the Monarch but a humble (although Royal) butler.
A worthy purchase for all lovers of humour, and cunning plans.
So I say thank you Blackadder I NEVER thought any show would take the crown of Python.........but you did!!

 Best comedy series ever created.

This collection is well worth purchasing if you haven't got Blackadder on DVD.

Some of the best comedy actors there are come together to show the meaning of humour and give us the funniest TV series ever created. At the same time they move forward in time with each series, giving us a bit of a history lesson, (possibly not a very accurate one, but never mind).
Rowan Atkinson acts Blackadder and Tony Robinson acts Baldrick, and they are the only two who are there throughout the entire series. We get some very nice appearances from other famous comedians such as Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry.

If you love to laugh and you love wit, you need to at least see this, if you haven't already.
Unfortunately the picture and sound quality isn't as it could be with this particular set, but I was happy enough, and still think it's more than worth the money.
The only disappointing DVD is Back and Forth which seems to lose the brilliant wit of the series, but somewhat makes up for this with the documentary on offer.
