Richard Curtis and Ben Elton's sharp scripts have more fun with the period setting than ever before, as contemporary literary archetypes from Samuel Johnson to Jane Austen are ripe for lampooning. Howard Goodall's theme tune is updated to a glorious classical pastiche, while the extravagant costumes of the times hardly need altering to achieve the desired effect. The comedy is so good it seemed this could never be bettered, until Blackadder Goes Forth that is. --Mark Walker
Still well worth buying, though.
A. Your ears. B. Your television's speakers. c. Your pulse.
All the charactors, jokes, one-liners ( C - big blue wobbley thing that mermaids live in) and even plots are spot on, with 'Thicky George'(Hugh Laurie) stealing sceen after sceen.
This is where Blackadder was always heading for.
Superior to the previous 2 outings, and contains most of the jokes used in the fading Blackadder goes forth.
Bigger than "..a whale omlette.." and sexier too (Woof! Woof!).
