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.

Good, and a bit better than potato!
3 June 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

My summary is worded this way because I noticed another reviewer said the opposite in their summary. I am not just saying this to be contrary--I really did think is was better and one of the more enjoyable episodes (though I think "Bells" and "Head" were the best).

This episode concerned the very worldly practices of some high church officials. In particular, the Bishop of Bath and Wells, and his love of loaning money. Why? Because he really loves it when people can't pay--as his hot poker goes to work on their bottoms! And who is the next to be tormented for non-payment of his debt? Not surprisingly, it is Edmund Blackadder, of course! So, unless he wants an awful butt-roasting, he'll need to think of something FAST! Something that takes advantage of some of the Bishop's OTHER vices.

While I could see some in the Anglican Church not particularly liking this episode, it's quite enjoyable and silly. And, for once, you actually find yourself feeling a bit sorry for Blackadder, believe it or not.
