Did it involve the chap who gets born on Christmas Day, shoots his mouth off about everything under the sun, and then comes a cropper with a couple of rum coves on top of a hill in Johnny Arab land?

Male elephants don't have a scrotum. Their body temperature is low enough that their testicles don't need to be outside their abdomen.

Thanks, subby. My husband was having a crap morning and this made him grin ear to ear. Win. :)

Well now. What in twelve types of instant cake mix are we supposed to do with a Christmas script?

So he says he didn't release it because it was offensive? Does he know that the Brits created a Honeymooners rip off that had Hitler as Ralf Kramden called Heil Honey I'm Home?

Heil honey I'm Home

I am craving a long ride in the countryside with my driver Bob , but to each their own

They should make it a production so big you'd think its mother had rogered an omnibus.

If they only removed the farking laugh-track I would be able to stand the farking series.

Came here to post this. I see it's been taken care of. Carry on.

Does it involve locating the missing portions of the Great International Christmas pudding so they could be reunited and the whole magnificent structure restored as an emblem of international goodwill and understanding?

Blackadder II had a studio audience. Dunno about the others but it doesn't seem canned to me.

Back and Forth would be completely different though. That was a turd.

\was very pleased with Red Dwarf X season opener

There are bits of lemon peel floating down the Thames that would make better scripts than this.

I would have loved to see Blackadder being a dick to Joseph and Mary - it would have been far less traumatizing that Baldrick's Posing Pouch.

I'm just now watching Blackadder Goes Forth. Don't tell me how it ends.

I enjoyed the Slug Balancer
 
2012-10-08 12:58:47 PM
They did a Christmas special -


It was OK. Good guy Ebeneezer Blackadder is accidentally turned bad by a haunting of three ghosts. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert appear.

Well he doesn't get shot with a canon by Admiral Wellington I can tell you that.

So by "found", they mean "submitted by the writer to his publisher"?

Are you saying that the new season doesn't have an every-three-seconds laughtrack as the originals did? I may have to give it a look.

It's not that I mind that you have a sheep in bed with you, it's the lying that breaks my heart.

I'd have to say I agree. Unusually powerful ending for a series chock full of sarcasm, scatological humour, and men in drag.

And it wasn't a cannon, it was a cannonette.

Of course, that's a different Christmas episode.

Don't forget Black Adder: Back And Forth (not be be confused with Black Adder GOES Forth), it's their millennial special they did. It's time-travel based. Don't expect it to be historically correct and you won't be disappointed.

They've gone back to a live audience which suits it quite nicely; it's basically the season 3 format they switched to after season 2 didn't work out the way they wanted. Though everyone's looking older, it could quite easily have been an episode from season 3-6. Yeah I was happy with it. And I hated seasons 7 - 8. Although it doesn't have Rob Grant (or is it Doug Naylor) it was waaay better than the season 7 - 8 reboot. You can watch it online at Dave's website I think.

/stoke me a clipper was okay I guess

Never could understand why people like that guy so much.

Same thing with the Talking Heads.

If you're talking about Rowan Atkinson, it's because that mofo be funny as f*ck.
If you're talking about Richard Curtis, it's because that mofo's writing be funny as f*ck.

I don't understand why anyone likes Radiohead, but Black Adder is hilarious and Talking Heads are a damned fine band.

Y'know, I kinda hope they get as many of the principals back together as they can and tape this in time for Christmas. Rowan, Hugh, Brian, Stephen, and Tony would make for a really jolly rogering Christmas.

Did they get rid of the snobby Kochanski? I hated that character SO much... I preferred the original brunuette so much more.

So why is all this black adder stuff suddenly surfacing? I don't know if you guys have seen it but the original pilot to black adder has also surfaced, very different. Different King, different Baldrick, and it's the confident mean spirited Edmund we see in later seasons instead the slimy weasel version that he was in series 1.

Wow, that's way better than what they ended up going with for Series 1, with one exception: Tony Robinson was an exponentially better Baldrick.

Got two minutes in and realized it's pointless w/o Brian Blessed as the King; he makes the first series worth it for me. Thanks for posting though, never heard of this pilot before.

It ends with Wibble climbing out of the British wibble and then running towards the wibble wibble. While wibble says "I have a cunning plan" to which, wibble says wibble.
