Blackadder

Show generally

Question: At the end of every series, except the third, 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.
