Storyline

After years of futile trench warfare, General Melchett gives the order for the "big push": a suicidal charge across the battlefield towards hundreds of German machine guns. Desperate to avoid participating, Captain Blackadder hatches a plan to convince his superiors that he has gone insane and therefore cannot go into combat. Written by Murray Chapman

Quotes

Captain Blackadder: This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you got a moment, it's a twelve-storey crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour portage, and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'. A large crisis requires a large plan. Get me two pencils and a pair of underpants.

The only time I have cried watching TV
12 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seriously, the first time I saw the end scene when the battle fades to grey and to the poppies was the only time I have cried watching TV. Because of the show (and Wilfred Owen's) I now have a tattoo on my upper arm with two rows of barbed wire and poppies and the text "Dulce et Decorum est Pro Patria Mori".

The greatest 30 mins of TV I have ever seen. Nothing comes close. Seriously. This is a programme that takes on the horror of war - it doesn't give in to punchlines and caricatures and doesn't focus on bloody horror. This is the one episode that should be shown to anyone who thinks that British comedy is shallow and pointless.
