5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 10 Jun 2006
This review is from: The Blackadder - The Historic First Series [1983] [DVD] (DVD)
The first series is somewhat forgotten by many people, but this is simply because of its few repeats. I'm not going to drone-on about the wonderful comedy writing and performances because Blackadder's proven its worth by standing the test of time. What I will say is that this series cost the BBC a shed load of money in production costs and more or less cancelled any chance of a second series. Thank god for the BBC and realising a gem in its infancy. We often forget how wonderful the BBC has been in producing fine comedy that travels the globe. I hope for a Blackadder 5 like most people, but I don't forget how spoilt the first four have made me.

Back to the series: King Richard IV's (Brian Blessed) deliberate misuse of his second son's name of Edmund is a shear joy, (EDNA is a particular favourite).

Love this series for its raw invention. It's the foundation for the wonderful three that followed. A clever Baldrick and a dim-wit Edmund is a refreshing twist. Percy's character is pure genius!
