BlackAdder

After seeing an advertisement for 'House' on C5 and hearing Hugh Laurie with an American accent I couldn't help but think of George from BlackAdder Goes Fourth. So Etonian!

So got any other fans of BlackAdder here?

All good Englishmen are fans of Blackadder surely the most quotable program of all time, not the best but one of my favourites:

Blackadder: [to Baldrick] This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you've got a moment, it's a twelve-storey crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour porterage and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'.

From BlackAdder Goes Fourth:

<As they're about to go over the top>

DARLING: Wrote an entry in my diary on the way here. It simply says...Bugger.


BALDRICK: Somebody ought to do something about that ladder sir, it got a splinter. A man could hurt himself on that!

From any series:

WOOF!

Same here!


Our library has the box set and I keep checking it out to get my "Black Adder" fix

Perhaps my favorite series is Blackadder III w/ the Prince Regent


And my favorite episode from that series is "Sense and Senilty" when the two actors try to teach the Prince how to make a speech in "enormous trousers" and Blackadder keeps yelling "Macbeth" in order to make the actors do the silly dance/chant





Blackadder = quality laughs

BlackAdder is one-liner heaven!

To Bob: You are a girl. And you are a girl with as much talent for disguise as a giraffe in dark glasses trying to get into a polar-bears-only golf club.

All 4 are hilarious but III and IV are probably my favorites.

Yeah, great show..

"I smell something fishy, and I'm not talking about the contents of Baldrick's apple crumble."

And yeah, hearing Hugh Laurie with an American accent gave me a start as well.

Blackadder is definitely one of the best TV shows ever made. Absolutely hysterical brilliance!

Genius.

Percy: This, my Lord, is a sample of the world's finest green.
Edmund: It looks like you've sneezed.

and of course

MacBeth!

Nursie: If you weren't quite so big, it would be time for Mr and Mrs Spank to pay a short sharp trip to Bottieland.

Blackadder: Oh, God, God, God! What on earth was I drinking last night? My head feels like there's a Frenchman living in it.

Blackadder: We live in an age where illness and deformity are commonplace, and yet, Ploppy, you are, without a doubt, the most repulsive individual I have ever met. I would shake your hand, but I fear it would come off.

BLACKADDER: They do say, Mrs. M, that verbal insults hurt more than physical pain. They are, of course, wrong, as you'll soon discover when I stick this toasting fork in your head.
