This review is from: Blackadder: Back And Forth - A Blackadder In The Making [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is a shameful end to the legacy of Blackadder. Not only does it lack the sensibility the old shows had, it's just plain not funny. Maybe it's because it's so short, that you never get a sense of who these people are or maybe Curtis and Elton have just lost their grip on Edmund, but this show falls flat. About five decent laughs in a half hour is not very good. The documentary on the making of 'Back and Forth' is funnier! They seem to be ticking off a list of jokes they have to get through, whether they make sense or not. "O.K., now an underpants joke, then one about being 'thick' and then we'll...etc."
If you like Blackadder and time travel, you're better off finding "A Blackadder Christmas Carol" than even watching this sad, sad thing. Maybe they'll do better in the Summer of 3000.
