In 1648, Sir Edmund Blackadder, descendant of Prince Edmund Plantagent and currently the sole member of the noble dynasty, is one of two people who stayed loyal to King Charles I after Oliver Cromwell's threat, the other being Baldrick, descendant of a pig farmer and a bearded lady. To protect his liege, Sir Edmund has hid the king (the series has already proven to us that the royals are insane) in Blackadder Hall, but Baldrick unwittingly betrays the ruler when Cromwell arrives at the Hall. Blackadder decides he must save the king when he is sentenced to execution, and becomes frustrated when Baldrick cluelessly accepts a job as executioner- until he realizes he may be able to use it to save Charles...Written by
as good as the rest. Very very funny as always.Should have been longer only because I can't get enough of Blackadder. I've seen the whole series between 7-12 times, I even got the pilot episode, where Baldrick is played by someone else.
two favorite quotes from the episode: "Baldrick, your brain is like the four-headed man-eating haddock fishbeast of Aberdeen! It dosen't exist."
"The earl he had a thousand florins. Hey, nonny no. Gave it all away to the man with the axe. Oh!"
"Percy, it's green." (one of many favorite quotes)
