For fans of the Blackadder comedy series, or for those who just love to laugh, this video will not disappoint. It details the zany travels of Lord Blackadder and his witless sidekick Baldrick "back and forth" through the centuries in their time machine.
Witness Blackadder's hilarious impact on the course of history, as he time-sails through historical eras and moments such as the Prehistoric age; encounters with William Shakespeare (in a hilarious cameo starring Colin Firth as the Bard) and Robin Hood (with Kate Moss as Maid Marian); The Battle of Waterloo; and many others.
You'll also laugh heartily when Blackadder returns to the present with "relics" stolen from each incident and discovers how he has unanticipatedly altered course of history--as well as his hilarious return travels to "right" his historical "wrongs."
This is Rowan Atkinson--also famous for his Mr. Bean character--at his best and includes the regular members of the Blackadder cast such as Miranda Richardson. As mentioned, there are delightful cameo appearances by Firth, Moss, and others.
This video will appeal to the Blackadder "novice," one who wants a sample taste for the more recent and zany comedy of the series. This is destined to become a family favorite! If you love odd-ball, wacky British humor ("humour"), this is an essential for your collection!
