Blackadder

Born to Be King - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When McAngus empties his bag on the table and the head falls on it we see the back of the head is turned against the camera. When it cuts to a close up of the head the head is facing in the direction of the previous camera take. When it cuts again the back of the head is turned against the camera. (00:11:25)

Born to Be King - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Blackadder talks to Baldrick and Percy about the plan, Blackadder walks to the window to notice MacAngus getting on a horse to exit the castle. The shot where Blackadder walks over to the window shows only one window above the window Blackadder looks out of and nothing more. A couple of shots later when the camera is in front of Blackadder, two extra windows have appeared from nowhere. There was an iron maiden there which could have blocked the view, but at least six inches of wall are shown between the iron maiden and window, so the window couldn't have been blocked by it. Not to mention the window panes are in a grid of 3x3 from inside, but 4x4 from outside. (00:15:45)

Plan B: Corporal Punishment - S4-E2

Blackadder: I remember Massingbird's most famous case - the Case of the Bloody Knife. A man was found next to a murdered body. He had the knife in his hand, thirteen witnesses had seen him stab the victim and when the police arrived he said 'I'm glad I killed the bastard.' Massingbird not only got him off, he got hom knighted in the New Year's Honours list, and the relatives of the victim had to pay to get the blood washed out of his jacket.

Answer: His first name is "Sod Off". Blackadder asks him in series 3 where this came from, and he replies "Well, when I was a kid, living in the gutter, I'd go up to the other kids and say 'Hello, I'm Baldrick'. And they'd say, 'Yes, we know. Sod off, Baldrick.'"
