Storyline

The president of the Bank of the Black Monks ("service with a smile and a stab") threatens Edmund with torture and death unless he repays the £1000 he owes. While always portraying himself as fabulously wealthy, Blackadder is in fact totally broke, and so he needs to find a way to make money very quickly.... or find something that the Monks like more than money.

Goofs

When Baldrick is showing the Bishop of Bath & Wells the painting of him in a dicey pose with Lord Percy, you can clearly see the unseen drawing is being held with the picture frame facing the camera, thus the Bishop is looking at the back of the painting. See more »

Quotes

Blackadder: This place smells worse than a pair of armored trousers after the Hundred Year War. Baldrick! Have you been eating dung again?
Lord Percy: My Lord! I have waited on your return!
[Percy hugs Blackadder]
Blackadder: And thank God you did, Percy, for I was just thinking to myself, "My God, I die in 12 hours, what I really need now is a hug from a complete prat."
Lord Percy: After literally an hour's ceaseless searching, I have succeeded in creating gold, pure gold.
Blackadder: Are you sure?
Lord Percy: Yes, my lord. Behold.
Blackadder: Percy... it's green.
Lord Percy: That's right...

Good, but not as good as Potato.
30 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Money is a good episode, but it just isn't quite as good as Head or Potato. The first five minutes are distinctly flat (one very big anachronism is made) and Queenie's cruel tricks soon become predictable and harsh. As with all episodes, Money has hilarious quotes and an interesting new character, but it is all a bit too predictable, and won't exactly grip you or amaze you. Percy's alchemy is hilarious, and Blackadder's sale of his house (which he earns back) is written and done pretty well, as well as the scene in which Baldrick convinces Blackadder to become a rent boy, but the episode is neither wild nor vivid, and stays rather flat throughout, and will not linger around in your mind for a while after. On the whole, Money beats most Series 1 episodes, and is worthy to be called Blackadder, though it is not the best. 8/10
