Blackadder

Sense and Senility - S3-E4

Factual error: During the theatre play you can see they are using electric stage lights. Nice move for a series plotted almost 300 years ago.

Mortug

Born to Be King - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Harry tells Blackadder to be in charge of the welcoming of King Richard's return, as Blackadder turns around and walks against the fireplace saying "12 months of chasing sheep.", if you look closely on the top of the fireplace you should be able to see the shadow of the boom mic moving. It's quite hard to see, but it's there.

Mortug

Dish and Dishonesty - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot after Blackadder has read up Baldrick's votes a microphone is visible in the upper right corner.

Mortug

The Archbishop - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Edmund, Baldrick and Percy get up from sitting by the fire, and before the line "The Black Adder will be King next", the shadow of the boom mike can be seen on Baldrick's hat - it moves upwards quickly so can be hard to spot.

Blackadder mistake picture

Chains - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the episode, when it shows you all the dead bodies, you can see Queenie to the right for a few seconds. The dagger she is holding is pointing upwards. Then there is a close-up of Queenie, who then talks back to you in Prince Ludwig's voice, and the dagger she is holding is now pointing downwards.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Blackadder Back and Fourth": Blackadder and his guests are going down stairs. Blackadder is first, George is second, Melchett is third, Elizabeth is fourth and Darling is fifth. Blackadder gives his notebook to George. When they arrive downstairs, Melchett and Elizabeth are ahead of George. This is not logical, since the stairs are too narrow and they could not have passed George.

Great_Captain

Amy and Amiability - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Shadow shoots at Baldrick to get rid of him, she is aiming over his head but the shot lands at his feet.

Josman

The Black Seal - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the final shot where Percy and Baldrick have entered the room and said their lines, as it fades to black the crew can be heared applauding.

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Baron punches Baldrick into the cell wall, it wobbles.

Nob and Nobility - S3-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Baldrick is called upon to demonstrate the type of clothing required when visiting France, the edge of the scenery can be seen behind him on his right in the area he enters from.

Dish and Dishonesty - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Baldrick is on the metal spit rotating by the fire, the fire is just a light up board.

Starchild

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Baldrick brings the turnip to aunt Whiteadder, he is standing right next to her. When it cuts to her eating it, Baldrick is suddenly gone.

Mortug

Money - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Blackadder is called to the Queen's first practical joke and he says he didn't laugh because his head would fall off, the Queen says, "If you don't start soon, your head will fall off", the boom mike is visible above her head.

Mortug

Bells - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Blackadder is at the Queen's asking for permission to get married and she approves, the boom mike pops into picture several times above her.

Mortug

Dish and Dishonesty - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: During the conversation between Blackadder and Baldrick, as Baldrick explains what he spent the £400,000 on, we can see the shadow from the boom mike moving on Blackadder's fur coat.

Mortug

Plan F: Goodbyeee - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder and the other soldiers are about to go "over the top", you can see two other soldiers standing behind Darling. They are presumably in the upper part of the trench. When Blackadder blows his whistle, you see all the soldiers climb onto their ladders and then start to rush over, side-by-side. In the next shot, when we see the soldiers emerging from the trench in slow motion, the other two soldiers are still back in the trench waiting for Darling to climb out before they move, as the two shots were filmed in two different studios.

Moose

Chains - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder and Melchett are about to punch the German guards in the groin, Melchett has his hand on a paper. When it cuts his hand is no longer on the paper.

Mortug

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder calls for Baldrick to fetch his incredible strong ale you see Melchett holding his beer down. When it cuts the ale is up at his chest.

Mortug

Potato - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning of the show right before Percy enters Blackadder's room you can see the shadow of some equipment moving up and down above the fire place.

Mortug

Head - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Edmund is trying to hide Farrow's head on a stake and Elizabeth enters and says "Hello Edmund. Look, I'm sorry I just snapped at you just now", you can see the shadow of the boom mike moving on the floor beside her shadow.

Quotes

[Blackadder is selling his house. Mr. And Mrs. Pants are looking around.]
Mrs. Pants: Strange smell.
Blackadder: Yes, that's the servant - he'll be gone.
Mr. Pants: You're really worked out your banter, haven't you?
Blackadder: No, not really. This is a different thing, it's spontaneous and it's called wit.

Trivia

There are in fact two versions of the bonfire scene. Although most countries use the intended censored version (where somebody coughs right as Edmund says the F word) there are a few US editions where you can hear him swearing uninterrupted.
