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.
