But still one of the best and most tragic endings to a comedy.
I just finished watching the entire series over 24 or so suppers. This one has teh most "British" ending.
I could never get into this series. Too depressing.
I just prefer 1. I liked that version of the character best, the scripts seemed a bit more clever than 2, 3 and 4. I guess an argument can be made that the dialogue is weaker, but only because sometimes the jokes aren't as obvious. Edmund also isn't this edgy witty dick. He's weak, dumb and sniveling. Like the ooze the other Blackadders evolved from (which I guess is the point). I dunno, 1 is almost nothing like 2, 3 and 4 the more I think about it.
My opinion is, I like season 1. All of them are well done though.
BUT DID HE DIE OR DIDN'T HE I'M CONFUUUUUUUUSED!
Supposedly another series was planned where Blackadder was a spy in Germany during WWII. So while this Blackadder most likely died, the line continued on. But the next season never happened, so I'm guessing dead.
