"Ahhh, thank you, Sir!"
30 July 2003 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant comedy! I already knew Rik Mayall as Flasheart in Blackadder II and Blackadder Goes Forth, but as Professor Adonis Cnut (or should I say QUADRUPLE Professor) he is even better. The quotes from Believe Nothing are absurd and cruel, which is exactly why this series is so funny. Cnut is a selfish, narcissistic professor and he certainly doesn´t underestimate himself: "Quickly! I have to translate the koran into Icelandic by bedtime..." My favourite character from Believe Nothing has GOT to be Albumen (Michael Maloney), who is a sort of slave-like, masochistic butler: When his master, Cnut, hurts him in any mental or physical way, he just moans "Ahhh, thank you, Sir!" He´s a sort of loyal dog, really. Emily Bruni is wonderful as the extremely intellectual but extremely weird Dr. Hannah Awkward, who seems to suffer from every mental disorder you can think of. Also, there are very funny (and of course exaggerated)imitations of the British Prime Minister Blair and President Bush ("Call me dubyah!")

If you liked Mayall in Blackadder, you´ll certainly LOVE Believe Nothing!!!!!
