Set during the really dark part of the Dark Ages, these episodes chronicle the wickedly funny misadventures of the terminally treacherous Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh (alias The Black Adder). Features three episodes of the Blackadder Chronicles: It's England, 1786-1815, a golden age of wealth, power and discovery though not for Edmund Blackadder Esq. who is now butler and gentleman's gentleman for the "mini-brained" Prince Regent.

Review:

The brilliant and inspired Black Adder comic saga begins with this collection of episodes from the life of Edmund Blackadder, Duke of Edinburgh (Rowan Atkinson), a.k.a. the Black Adder. Set in "the really dark part" of the Dark Ages, the stories concern the villainous and cowardly Duke's sundry schemes. "The Foretelling" features a guest appearance from the late Peter Cook as the ghost of Richard III, who's come around to haunt our "hero." "Born to Be King" pits Edmund's scheming mind and awful haircut against the treachery and kilt of a dancing Scotsman. Finally, "The Archbishop" is the surreal story of a landscape littered with the bodies of dead Archbishops of Canterbury--a post for which Edmund is next in succession. Wonderful, funny stuff from Mr. Bean's alter ego. --Tom Keogh
