Product Description

Product Description

The entire second series of hit TV show 'Blackadder'. Written and devised by Richard Curtis ('Four Weddings and a Funeral') and Ben Elton, it stars Rowan Atkinson as the slimy courtier who - with the help and hindrance of his witless sidekick Baldrick (Tony Robinson) - tries to wheedle his way into the affections of Queen Elizabeth I (Miranda Richardson). The episodes included are: 'Bells', 'Head', 'Potato', 'Money', 'Beer' and 'Chains'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Although now regarded as the opening salvo of a classic series, the original Blackadder series was not considered a great success, either among critics or many viewers, so a major rethink took place when it was recommissioned. On the writing front, future-Four Weddings And A Funeral scribe Richard Curtis was joined by Ben Elton, while the expensive War of the Roses-era sets were replaced by cosier Elizabethan ones. The most important change, however, was with Rowan Atkinson's eponymous character who, in the first series, had been a fairly weak-willed idiot but now emerged as the familiar Machiavellian fiend which would cement Atkinson's place in the pantheon of great British sitcom actors. Moreover, even if so many of the script's lines have been subsequently ripped off by lesser hands that it can't help but occasionally sound dated, the central performances of Atkinson, Tony Robinson (Baldrick), Tim McInnery (Lord Percy), Stephen Fry (Lord Melchett) and, of course, Miranda Richardson as the childishly psychotic Queen Elizabeth ("I love it when you get cross. Sometimes I think about having you executed just to see the expression on your face") remain note perfect. Yet the real pleasure for viewers may be in rediscovering the raft of excellent guest star performances--not least Tom "Doctor Who" Baker's berserk turn as a literally legless old sea dog given to guzzling his own urine long before the drinking water has run out. --Clark Collis

After the poor first series Blackadder 2 is one of the comedy classic of the eighties. Fantastic performances from all the cast. Fantastic one liners and brilliant storylines. Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson are born to work together. Its hard to find anything wrong with this perfectly crafted series. I bow down to writers Richard Curtis and Ben Elton who are very talented people. Only to say this is not the best Blackadder (yes it does get better)

Hilarious. That is the first word that springs to mind when I think of Blackadder. This really is a classic, modern comedies don't come close. In this series, Blackadder is cunning, shrewd and witty as a complete juxtaposition with the original Blackadder, and this works to stunning effect.
Perhaps the greatest thing about Blackadder is that you can watch it again, and again and find things you didn't see the first time and still laugh at most of the jokes. This really is British comedy at it's best.

I think this one's the funniest. I know each series has its fans, even the first one, but this was such a change of tack compared to the first series that it really set the formula for series 3 and series 4.
In the first series, Edmund was slimy, weedy, stupid and unpopular. Baldrick was the clever one, who saved him on more than one occasion. The series cost a fortune to make - every episode had outdoor shots on castle ramparts, in monastery grounds, in woods and on hills. Then Ben Elton joined the team, and this series was filmed entirely in either Blackadder's front room, Queenie's chambers or in the Tower of London dungeons. And Edmund went from being supremely stupid to the sly, cunning genius he has been ever since. True, he retained his loathing for everybody that he had in the first series, and he still is only ever looking out for himself, but he is an entirely different person compared to the Duke of Edinburgh. And, because he's now clever, Baldrick has become very very stupid. Percy, of course, is pretty much the same as he was in the first series, just more so. Whether Edmund is getting married to his manservant, executing the Queen's enemies in the Tower jail, travelling around the world with a legless sailor, selling his house to pay off his debts, having a piss-up and a puritan meal simultaneously or trying to escape from a German kidnapper, his exploits are hilarious. All the supporting cast are superb as well. As I mentioned above, Baldrick has become the lovable idiot that he still is, Percy reminds me of an Elizabethan "Gareth from The Office", Queenie is so girlish but with a wonderful mean streak, Melchett is the odious arse-licker to the queen that Edmund aspires to, Nursie is nearly as stupid as Baldrick, but cute with it.
Series 3 and 4 are still very good, but for me this is the best.

I remember watching some of the first series and being uncertain about it. I was intrigued enough to sit and watch the first episode of the second series and found it to be a vast improvement.
For me, this is the funniest of the Blackadder series, but I enjoyed them all.
The first episode, Bells, introduces us to the new Blackadder dynasty as he falls in love with his manservant, Bob (short for Kate). Head has to be one of my own favourites with Edmund appointed Lord High Executioner. Who can forget Tom Baker's portrayal of Captain Rum in the wonderful Potato?
Blackadder's attempts to avoid the Bishop of Bath and Wells' hot poker delight in Money. Equally unforgettable are his dual parties in Beer as he tries to keep his puritan aunt and a drinking binge apart. The final episode seemingly brings the Blackadder dynasty to another end as Edmund finds himself in Chains.
A welcome addition to the BBC's DVD catalogue. The picture quality is generally excellent (an improvement on the transfer for the first series). On a down note there are no extra features on the DVD.

Blackadder II is a vast improvement over its less popular predecessor. The second series was almost not made due to the lack of success of the original, and clearly the writers re-considered Blackadder's character. He, rather than the now dull-witted Baldrick, is the more intelligent of the pair and his character is now quick-witted, cunning and offers much in sarcastic humour. This, and possible Blackadder goes Forth, is the best of all the Blackadder series. Blackadder's new character is much funnier and Atkinson plays it masterfully. The series itself takes place some one hundred years after the first, just before the turn of the 17th century. I recommend it to all comedy fans.

After the first series poor reception, Rowan Atkinson was dropped from the writing team to make way for Ben Elton, and a switch in intelligence between Blackadder and Baldrick, all turned this series into the greatest thing since sliced bread.
This is my particular favorite of the 4 seasons, and not a duff joke or line really. Tony Robinson,s Baldrick and Tim McInnerny's Lord Percy are stunning, and Blackadders timing a thing of beauty.. Worthy of 6 out of 5
