Blackadder

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 the plane, not only is the side intact, but fuel is coming out of the bottom.

Suggested correction: The plane is shot on the right hand side, which we don't see after the bullets hitting the plane. We also never see the bottom of the plane the first time so don't know if the fuel is leaking.

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.

Suggested correction: It's a trench filled with curious soldiers. Could be anyone. Not necessarily a crew member.

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.

Suggested correction: OK a few points. 1. The baron and Blackadder are flying different kinds of plane. One could be louder than the other. 2. Gunners have to stop occasionally. So the gun stopping isn't a mistake. 3. We don't know for definite if they are ignoring the gun. This is speculation at best.

Quotes

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.

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.
