Excellent Blackadder series possibly the best ever.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Blackadder: The Complete Blackadder Goes Forth [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This is probably the best Blackadder series of the lot. The comedy shows the unfortunate truth of the horror of war, with razor sharp wit and brilliant one-liners. The final scene is probably one of the most emotional images of war. Blackadder is his ususal sarcastic witty self, while Baldrick seems even more stupid, "It's better than sitting around here on our elbows!" Hugh Laurie plays Lieutenant George brilliantly, and Stephen Fry makes an ideal General whose ideas on warfare are almost too close to the truth. Also an excellent cameo performance by Rik Mayall as Lord Flasheart the ace pilot in 'Private Plane'. All in all a brilliant series that should not be misssed.
