Trivia

In Goodnight Mr Bean. Mr Bean tries to get to sleep by counting sheep, on a poster that is. After repeated miscounts he decides to count them by multiplying the row and column, on his calculator he types 27 x 15 which equals 405, although it's obvious there are far fewer sheep, there are in fact only 43.

Mr. Bean

Atkinson, as confessed, has been preparing for this role since the very beginning. What started as a time-filling sketch, it is quite an elevation considering what this character; more than the series, has achieved. Rowan Atkinson, the actor and more or less the creator of this global phenomenon, has previously worked in similar arenas in stages, miming, what basically could be considered as a stand up, his appearances have always been about the performance more than the content. And with a physical language that bars no boundaries, this global outreach actually comes with a never-ending clause.

Primarily, to Atkinson. Since he could always claim his throne and the blames could easily be passed upon. But filtering or criticizing themselves, the creators have only shot definite amount of these sketchy scenes, in order to maintain the quality. And so pure the material is, that even after decades later, it hasn't gotten rusty yet. And it presumably never will. Since none of these scenarios seem effortful or tedious to the audience, the depicted gags are actually a part of a common man's routine in his day-to-day life.

And looking at those activities with an eye of an anarchistic 9 year old boy, Atkinson has managed to embed his name among pioneers like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. But even something sensational as such, comes with few flaws. Lopping off the editing and execution of this series, the shift of these chapters into one typical sitcom can easily be seen. Running out of ideas and occasionally compromising to the commercial aspect of the fame (Christmas episode), the series loses the subtlety for a brief period. When the neck starts going towards the noose rather than the other way around, that is when Mr. Bean grows simpleton, in a sense that it relies upon nothing but the performer and its inspiringly absurd performance.

Goodnight Mr. Bean

The first act is hilarious. Carrying out one of the purest emotion of not having patience around us, even in us, Atkinson is not only spiraling out an event that is dark and funny but also a justifying event that pays its due off willingly and aptly. The other two aren't reliable enough to invest your chips on.
