Yesterday I watched the TV-programme 'Blackadder's Most Cunning Moments' where they listed the top 40 funniest episodes from the four series.

My favourites (as I can't choose) are a tie between the scene where Melchett is rehearsing his speech to Georgina and keeps saying Darling. Darling gets really confused and a tad bit disappointed (I think) when he finds out he's not been talking to him. The other one is the last scene. I cry when I watch it. Can't help it.

What about you guys??

Mine has to be (though I'll probably change my mind about a thousand times) from Blackadder goes Forth, the last episode where Blackadder's explaining the history of why the war started
"...Thus there could never be a war..."
"But this is, a kind of a war, isn't it sir?"
"Yes, you see there was a slight flaw in the plan."
"What was that?"
"It was bollocks."
(probably not quoted correctly)

Not a Melchett moment but still...

I change my mind all the time too. LOL
There are so many gems to choose from. Thank you for contributing

That would be me.

So very many favorite moments...hence why I bought the set.

But I will agree that the ending was insanely powerful for a comedy series and had me bawling my eyes out.

I used to be EternalStudent on these forums until the switch over. So don't get excited..I'm not someone new and exciting. I'm just me :P

I agree with you. So many moments. I just bought Blackadder Back & Forth (though I've seen it before) because I can't get enough.

I was a little disappointed some of my fave bits weren't in - Baldrick doing unspeakable things to a chicken in "Amy and Amiability" - actually, quite a few things in that ep. I also thought the Witchsmeller Pursuivant from series 1 would have made it, but alas...

I think mine are either the one where Prince George tries to say antidisestablishmentarialsm or the one where he does the chicken impression...

I know. I thought there were too many parts of the first series missing.

As a theatre geek, mine has to be actors and MacBeth

"so you want me to say the Scottish play ---- not MacBeth"

when I am having a very bad day I will just watch that and feel so much better.....

there are so many unforgettable moments in all seasons and specials. Among mine are
- the witchsmeller pursuivant
- the Whiteadders' visit
- all of "Ink and Incapability" and "Sense and Senility"
- the very last episode "Goodbuyeee" which is funny and unbelievably sad. Not to ridicule war and still be hilariously funny, this way further emphasizing the horror and utter senselessness of war, is purest genius.

I actually rather like the bit where Baldrick is selling Jesus' fingers. So cynical.

That would be me.
