I'm going to go watch some now!

Quote:
Edmund: Tell me Young crone, is this Putney?
Crone: That it be... that it be...
Edmund: "Yes it is", not "That it be". You don't have to talk in that stupid voice to me, I'm not a tourist. I seek information about a Wisewoman.
Crone: Ah, the Wisewoman.. the Wisewoman.
Edmund: Yes, the Wisewoman.
Crone: Two things, my lord, must thee know of the Wisewoman. First, she is ... a woman! ...and second, she is ...
Edmund: Wise?
Crone: You do know her then?
Edmund: No, just a wild stab in the dark which is incidentally what you'll be getting if you don't start being a bit more helpful. Do you know where she lives?
Crone: Of course.
Edmund: Where?
Crone: Here. Do you have an appointment?
Edmund: No.
Crone: Well, you can go in anyway.
Edmund: Thank you Young crone. Here is a purse of moneys... which I'm not going to give to you
Quote:
Baldrick : Don't worry mister B, I have a cunning plan to solve the problem.
Blackadder : Yes Baldrick, let us not forget that you tried to solve the problem of your mother's low ceiling by cutting off her head.
Quote:
Blackadder : Have you ever been to Wales Baldrick?
Baldrick : No, but I've often thought I'd like to.
Blackadder : Well don't, it's a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough sinewy men roam the valleys terrorising people with their close-harmony singing.


Quote:
Prince George: Last night, I was having a bit of a snack at the Naughty Hellfire Club, and some fellow said I had the wit and sophistication of a donkey.
Blackadder: Oh, an absurd suggestion, sir.
Prince George: You're right. It is absurd.
Blackadder: Unless, of couse, it was a particularly stupid donkey.

Lol Elysia and Rivendell! Yes, they don't make comedy like that anymore *sigh*.

The final Blackadder Goes Forth always makes me cry though. It's so moving. And the old Sea Captian (Tom Baker) in Blackadder the Second always makes me howl "Ah, you have WOMAN'S hands melord!"

And Blackadder Back And Forth I believe was commissioned by the Millenium Dome - small wonder it didn't measure up

I love his tone of voice,

"I am Edmund Blackadder, and I am the new minister in charge of religious genocide."

So matter of fact!

As of yet I have not been blessed by watching much of it. I intend on watching more in the near future

I get the feeling there's a hint of Bazil Fawlty in Edmund, don't you?

Hehe! The Kate/Bob episode:

Quote:
Father... I must speak .I can be silent no longer. All day long you mutter to yourself...gibber, dribble, moan, and bang your head against the wall, yelling, 'I want to die!'. Now you may
say I'm leaping to conclusions, but...you're not ...completely happy, are you?

"I'm sorry Ma'am, your father always used to laugh at my impression of colombus!"

"Well that doesn't surprise me, he used to laugh at.... what are those people called.. with Funny faces and bells.."

"Jesters, ma'am."

"No..... ... Lepers."

Oh Blackadder, how I love thee!
Love, love, love that show! British humour at its best.
I have watched every episode except Blackadder Back And Forth, which for some reason never aired here (in India). Even more irritatingly, I recently manged to get hold of the transcripts for all the episodes except Blackadder Back And Forth! If anyone knows where to find it, please point me to it.
