    Never seen Blackadder

    Mr. Bean rules though, so I should really check it out....

    You really should, Tyi. It's the funniest British sitcom not set in a hotel...

    But if you are expecting anything similar to Mr. Bean, you won't find it.


    Anyway, series 2 was the best. Blackadder was nasty, and Baldrick was dumb. Ever since then, Mr B has becoming nicer and Baldrick becoming smarter. But seasons 2-4 are absolute gold; season one is the only weak one.

    The only similarity would be the actor. I don't want it to be another Mr. Bean anyway. ;)

    I'll keep the series recommendations in mind. :)

    Blackadder The Third is the best series. But it's only a slim margin that seperates it from Blackadder Goes Forth (the last episode of which is the greatest half hour of sitcom ever written).

    The third series is my absolute favourite. I just like the era it's set in and as with all of the black adder series how they make jokes out of historical facts. But I like the fifth episode on the second series with the booze up "See the little goblins!"

    "Marvalous thing democracy. Look at Mnchester population 60,000, electual role 3."

    Series 2, 3 and 4 are all stupendous, but my vote goes to Blackadder Goes Forth, on the strength of two things:

    1. Rik Mayall as Squadron Leader Lord Flashheart.

    "Of course that's not what I think! Now get out that door before I redecorate this wall in an interesting new colour called Hint of Brain."

    2. The final episode. I agree with Everton; Goodbyeee is the single greatest half-hour of sitcom ever. Period.

    back and forth was good but

    Goes Forth was the greatest

    Blackadder Goes Forth, because of the ending.

    Forth, pretty much for the same reasons stated above.
