In the opening credits, there is a photo of Blackadder in Indian attire. This is a homage to Rowan Atkinson's wife Sunetra Sastry, who was makeup on "Black-Adder II" (1986) and is of Indian descent.See more »

Blackadder:Let's get home Baldrick.
Baldrick:But we don't know where home is. We're doomed to float through time for all time! Oh woe is me!
Blackadder:Shut up Baldrick. Shut up. There is one final thing to push that may be our salvation.

Blackadder:Or not. Because it is in fact, a lollipop.
Baldrick:Raspberry flavoured my lord!
Blackadder:Oh god. I'm going to spend the rest of my life in a small wooden room with two toilets and the stupidest man in the world.
Baldrick:Wait my lord, do not despair. For I have a cunning plan.
Blackadder:Can I say I'm not optimistic Baldrick?
Baldrick:To be quite frank my lord, neither am I. My family have never been very good at plans.

Liked it...but it did lack something, 28 October 2002
Author: Mmyers2003 from England, UK

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.
