Blackadder

The Witchsmeller Pursuivant - S1-E5

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.

Duel and Duality - S3-E6

Trivia: Stephen Fry, who played Lord Wellington, ad-libbed most of his lines.

Trivia: BlackAdder was recently voted the second best British comedy, losing to Only Fools and Horses.

Plan F: Goodbyeee - S4-E6

Trivia: When the last scene was filmed, the cast ran onto a polystyrene no man's land, someone shouted bang and they all fell down. only to bounce back up. Obviously, this was edited out, which is why you never actually see them getting shot.

Money - S2-E4

Trivia: In the Millennium special 'Back & Forth', Blackadder first brought the Polo mint to England - which would explain how a lone polo came to be in the purse in this episode's opening sequence.

Plan E: General Hospital - S4-E5

Trivia: When Blackadder is explaining how he caught the nurse as the German spy by saying three schools of which only two were great universities, Melchett says "Quite right, Oxford's a right dump." This is an in-joke, as Stephen Fry (who played Melchett) went to Cambridge, and Rowan Atkinson (Blackadder) went to Oxford.

Trivia: The episode "Blackadder Back And Forth" was originally shown only in an exhibit at the Millennium Dome in Greenwich.

Trivia: In the first scene of "Blackadder Back and Forth," a portrait of First World War Blackadder can be seen on the wall.

Sense and Senility - S3-E4

Trivia: During the scene about how to give the speech, Kenneth Connor coughs during the filming and Hugh Laurie does his best to stifle a laugh whilst berating Edmund. They were kept in, adding to the hilarity.
