Blackadder (1986)

13 mistakes in season 4

Plan E: General Hospital - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: After his interrogation, Darling is able to run out of the doctor's office (albeit hobbled by the chair he is tied to) despite having been shot in the foot and having been seen visibly limping earlier.

Plan B: Corporal Punishment - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Black Adder shoots the pigeon, and the feathers fly everywhere. One feather lands on Black Adder, just above his ear. In the next shot, the feather has moved up, on the other side of his side-part, towards the top of his head.

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.

Plan A: Captain Cook - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder, Baldrick and George are out in the no man's land, Blackadder screams and Baldrick asks why. Blackadder answers he put his elbow in a blob of ice cream while looking at Baldrick. When it cuts he is looking straight forward instead.

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Factual error: Baldrick becomes Blackadder's navigator. The problem is, WWI aircraft did not carry navigators; they carried either only a pilot, or a pilot and an observer, and observers were officers.

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

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

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder's plane is shot, we see the bullets hit the side. In the next shot of plane, not only is the side intact, but fuel is coming out of the bottom.

Plan C: Major Star - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: During the general's speech about how Blackadder is the person to organise a concert party, look at the entrance to the trench. In one shot you can see a crew member moving a giant cloth. You see mostly the movement, but you can catch a glimpse of the crew member's face.

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Other mistake: When we first see the plane that Blackadder and Baldrick are flying, the machine gun on top of it is firing. There are 3 mistakes here. 1) We don't hear the gun fire. Cannot be argued by the plane drowning it out, as we later hear the Red Baron's gun firing. 2) In the next shot, the gun has stopped firing. 3) The fact the gun is firing is ignored by Blackadder and Baldrick. They are too busy on keeping the plane level - the whole flying scene was obviously archive footage of WWI planes flying.

Season 4 generally

Deliberate mistake: Whenever a punch is thrown in this series, the punch either stops before it hits the person or goes beside them. It's most obvious in the last episode when General Melchett says 'Excellent native cockney wit' and punches Baldrick.

Plan A: Captain Cook - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Blackadder chucks up George's helmet, and it gets riddled with bullet holes. When the helmet comes down, it comes down at an angle, revealing that it had been passed down.

A Demon

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Flasheart hits Edmund with the gun, he swings his arm to the right, but Edmund falls to the left.

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.

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.
