best episode of black adder

IMHO, Blackadder 2, when the beheading went tits up. Blackadder had to impersonate the poor unfortunate to the widow, sorry wife. He was just about to receive a BJ walks Baldrick! Class.
Mine is Black Adder 2 - 'Baby eating Bishop of Bath and Wells'

or possibly Black adder 3 - the Scarlet Pimpernel episode


Book Reviewer
Nope, Have to disagree. For me the best one was in Blackadder goes forth when they were sent into no mans land to sketch the enemy.
The one where Baldrick found a turnip which looked just like a willy and then went on to say what a coincidence as he had a willy which looked just like a turnip.
Series 1, I think the last episode where he collects the most rutheless men in the land, only to be deposed as the leader, tortured but become King!

Series 1 again, the battle of Edge Hill (I think), Peter Cook and Brian Blessed.
Has to be Blackadder 3 with the dictionary episode:-

Right, let's get the book. Now; Baldrick, where's the manuscript?

You mean the big papery thing tied up with string?

Yes, Baldrick -- the manuscript belonging to Dr. Johnson.

You mean the baity fellow in the black coat who just left?

Yes, Baldrick -- Dr. Johnson.

So you're asking where the big papery thing tied up with string belonging to the baity fellow in the black coat who just left is.

Yes, Baldrick, I am, and if you don't answer, then the booted bony thing with five toes at the end of my leg will soon connect sharply with the soft dangly collection of objects in your trousers. For the last time, Baldrick, where is Dr. Johnson's manuscript?
On the fire.

On the *what*?

The hot orangy thing under the stony mantlepiece.

:rofl: :clap: Classic!

Edited for typing too slow
Black Adder 2 -Money 'Baby eating Bishop of Bath and Wells'

"I am a collosal pervert, not form of sexual degradation is too low for me. Animal, vegetable or mineral, I'll do anything to anything."

Black adder 3 - the Scarlet Pimpernel episode (the french ambassador)

" On the contrary, I hate you English with your shiny toilet paper and boring trousers, and your ridiculous preconception that we French are fantastic lovers. I'm French and i'm hung like a baby carrot and a couple of petits pois."

Sheer genius

i thought the best episode was when lord flashard saved blackadder what do you think ?
Agreed, genius.

"Any woman who wants to chain herself to my railings and suffer-a-jet movement gets MY vote!"

Bring back blackadder, it rocked.
Blackadder goes fourth. Not sure whether to say Flashheart or the Hospital one.

Flashheart because of the line "Get inside them 5 times a day and take them to heaven and back"

Hospital because of General Melchit shooting Capt Darling to give him a 'convincing flesh wound' so he can spy on our spy whilst searching for their spy!
Goodbyee, the final episode of Blackadder Goes Forth, it has the best mix of comedy and pathos of any comedy ever.

Failing that either of the two episodes featuring Bob - Bells and Major Star.
Blackadder goes forth - the one with the spy in the field hospital:

Whilst Darling is tied up squeeling like a girl..

Darling: 'Blackadder this things been going on for weeks and ive only just arrived'

Blackadder: '1st rule of couter-espionage Darling is never take anything for granted'

Darling: 'But what about you ?'

Blackadder: 'Dont worry, I will ask myself some searching questions later.'

For some reason the wife does'nt think its very funny. Mad Biatch.
oooooh second thoughts...... maybe BA goes forth when George is discovered to be a decent artist.

"There may have been a couple more armament factories... and slightly less elephants, but thats about right sir."

Black Adder The Third. Dual and Duality. Where Stephen Fry plays the Duke of Wellington.

..."The men had a whip round and got you this.Well, what I mean is, I had the men roundly whipped until they got you this. A cigarillo case, engraved with the regimental crest of two crossed dead Frenchmen emblazoned over a mound of dead Frenchmen motif."

Classic. Maybe Arrsewater could use this as their motif too.
We've got the four disc complete four series at home - £40 well spent! My wife is Bretonne (all the jokes have been done before, thanks) :) and I didn't know if she'd get it. She now has Blackadder marathons when I'm away. Legend.

Favourite? Too many to choose from, although Private Plane is gleaming, as is Corporal Punishment - the "Flanders Pigeon Murderer!"


Blackadder the Third, 'Dual & Duality', when Blackadder agrees to pretend to be the Prince & fight a dual with the Duke of Wellington:

Blackadder : Tell me do you ever stop bullying and shouting at the lower orders?
Wellington : NEVER! There's only one way to win a campaign shout, shout and shout again.
Blackadder : You don't think that inspired leadership and tactical ability have anything to do with it?
Wellington : NO! It's all down to shouting. WAAGGHH!
