Storyline

It's Millennium Eve and Blackadder is hosting a dinner party for a few select friends, Lady Elizabeth, Viscount George, Archbishop Melchett and Archbishop Darling. Baldrick devises yet another of his infamous cunning plans to help his ever greedy master Edmund Blackadder con money from his gullible friends. The pair build a "time machine" from empty cereal packets and place bets with their friends as to when in history they will travel, retrieving various artifacts from their travels as proof, items which Blackadder already owns! However, in a strange twist of fate the time machine actually works and the pair are thrown back in history initially to the Jurassic period. Gradually the pair start to return to their own time stopping off at various famous times in history such as Sherwood Forest and the Battle of Waterloo but will they make it home?

Crazy Credits

An orchestral anthem in genuine praise of Blackadder (in contrast to the first and second shows, which mocked him) plays over the closing credits. It is accompanied by lyrics to sing along to, which the head of Blackadder bounces along to (and the Queen and Baldrick, when the anthem mentions them). See more »

Liked it...but it did lack something
28 October 2002 | by (England, UK) – See all my reviews

I'm all for another series to be made provided it doesn't come out like the film. It was good to watch but definately did seem to have lost the wit and Hilarity of the series. I loved the series and found series 2, 3 and 4 to be the funniest. Blackadder is the very greatest tv sitcom in the world and is definately as good as Fawlty Towers. Lets just hope the writers, Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, have a cunning plan for a new series if there is to be one. Overall i'd give it 7 out of 10 but don't let this stop you from viewing the series.
