Blackadder

Show generally

Question: At the end of every series, Blackadder dies. Then he's alive at the start of the next one. Is this the same man? I once heard he's sort of his own descendant. How does it work?

Chosen answer: The Blackadder in each series is a descendent of some description of the previous Blackadder. However, from the second series onwards he is essentially the same person transplanted into a different time and lower social class - mocking the original character's wish to be king by taking him further from the noble life until he becomes simply 'cannon fodder'. Check out Blackadder's Wikipedia entry for pretty much everything you need to know.

Quotes

Percy: It will be a great day tomorrow for we nobles.
Edmund: Well, not if we lose, Percy. If we lose, I'll be chopped to pieces. My arms will end up at Essex, my torso in Norfolk, and my genitalia stuck up in a tree somewhere in Rutland.

Mistakes

Back and Forth: When Blackadder first goes into the time machine to get the items from Baldrick, and the door goes up, you can see a crew member pushing the door closed, wearing a red shirt.

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.
