Quotes

Percy: It will be a great day tomorrow for we nobles.
Prince Edmund: Well, not if we lose, Percy. If we lose, I'll be chopped to pieces. My arms will end up at Essex, my torso in Norfolk, and my genitalia stuck up in a tree somewhere in Rutland.

Funny and Gory
28 October 2006 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

England 1300 and something. Edmond wakes up late for battle, kills the king by accident, and makes his father the new king. Pleased with the "victory", Edmond names himself "The Black Adder". Although it is not considered as good as the other Black Adder shows, it is the beginning, and therefore we forgive the prematurity. Rowan Atkinson is great sometimes, but sometimes just too goofy and silly. People who aren't familiar with Shakespeare will enjoy this show even less, there are many references to Macbeth and Hamlet. Also, if you are sensitive to graphic violent jokes you won't like to see the gory spectacles. 7 out 10.
