Black Adder

     This is one of my all time favorite comedy series... no wait, this is my favorite comedy series of all time! Me and a friend of mine (the one who introduced me British comedies) came up with some interesting facts about the characters in Black Adder:
 
1. Edmond Black Adder gets smarter and more cynical as the series progresses.
2. Baldrick get dumber and more revolting as the series progresses.
3. George gets dumber as the series progresses.
4. Mechot gets dumber form series 2 to 4.
5. Percy gets smarter (slightly) from series 1 to 2.
 
I didn't put Black Adder 4 up there for Percy 'cause I'm not sure if Kevin Darling is a Percy descendant. Does anyone know?
My favorite season is a toss up. At first I really liked BA 3 the best. Then I started watching BA 4 and slowly it began to grow on me. I can't decide.
It wasn't to long ago that I finally saw the last episode of Black Adder. It was very sad. When the show ended I decided that this was the best comedy series ever.
 

Black Adder
In 1983 Black Adder 1 was considered a failure in the UK. It was also the most costly of the 4 series. Its jokes were considered too "over the top".
Theme Song:
The sound of hoof beats cross the glade.
Good folk, lock up your son and daughter.
Beware the deadly flashing blade.
Unless you want to end up shorter.
Black Adder. Black Adder.
He rides a pitch black steed.
Black Adder. Black Adder.
He's very bad indeed.
Black, he gloves are finest mole.
Black, his cod piece made of metal.
His horse is blacker than a hole.
His pot is blacker than his kettle.
Black Adder. Black Adder.
With many a cunning plan.
Black Adder. Black Adder.
You horrid little man!

Black Adder Parte The Second
In 1985 Black Adder 2 almost didn't air. With an effort from the writers, the project was green lighted and became very popular.
 
Theme song to first episode:
 
So, Flashheart Tweaked the Adder's beard
From now, he always shall be single
To fall in love with boys is weird
Especially boys without a tinkle
Black Adder, Black Adder
His taste is rather odd
Black Adder, Black Adder
A randy little sod
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart
I wish you were the star
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart
You're sexier by far

"I'll fill you so full of lead we could sharpen your head and use you as a pencil!"
 

Black Adder Goes Forth
This was almost "not" the last Black Adder series. A plan for another Black Adder, set in the 60's was being planned. The writers and actors decided in the end that they would end the Black Adder saga here. By the way, in the 60's Black Adder, Baldrick was going to be named.. Bald Rick.

"Baldrick, there are tribes yet untouched by man that do more convincing Charlie Chaplain impressions."
"Looks like your right Baldrick. Looks like were gonna get rogered to death."
 

Black Adder's Christmas Carol
This is a great Christmas time version of Black Adder that is very clever in its premise. Replace Scrooge with Black Adder and reverse the whole story! Brilliant.
