    I watched this sometime ago, pretty good. I am from the states so I had never heard of Black Adder. I know Rowan as Mr. Bean, hilarious. My favorite episode is the one when he can't figure out which car is his cause they all look the same, or the one where he is on the military base and starts leading the company around the parking lot doing drills. I think that may be the same episode, its been forever since I saw it. Anyway, good stuff!! English comedy is great!! Does anyone know where I can see episodes of Black Adder?

    Thanks guys, Vlatko is right though- I found them with a simple search. I had assumed they would be hard to find as I thought the show was a bit more obscure than it really is, I suppose because I had never heard of it before seeing this doc. However, apparently this is very well known to my friends across the pond- and after watching a few episodes I see why. Its very easily found for anyone interested in watching a few episodes.

    I'm not keen on their humor as individuals even Stephen Fry who I absolutely love for other things but together in Blackadder they are amazing, the eptimone of English sarcasm and being able to take the p*... micky of ourselves :D
    EDIT: Possibly should be called British sarcasm as I got mine from my Scottish dad :0)

    Pretty cool past for Mr Bean.

    I'd love to see a series with Rowan Atkinson & Rick Myal as leaders of opposing political parties.

    They both are most excellent at paroding the arrogant yet ignorant toffs.

    Add a touch of "Yes Minister" and they'd have another hit series.

    I enjoyed Black Adder but this is boring, boring, boring.

    wow. This has brought back memories of seeing it on PBS in CT during the early 80's. Also faulty towers was funny as hell and the infamous Benny Hill. I love British humor
