Black Adder - The Complete Collector's Set movie Customer Reviews
||A ball-bouncingly funny set of DVDs - a must for fans|
Black Adder - The Complete Collector's Set video This 5-DVD set is astonishingly complete - it contains the 4 original seasons of 'Black Adder', the Christmas special 'Blackadder's Christmas Carol', the not-very-often-seen 'The Cavalier Years' (set in the time of Oliver Cromwell) and the final 'Blackadder Back And Forth'. Black Adder - The Complete Collector's Set film It also contains interviews, a 'Making Of' documentary on '... Back And Forth' and footnotes to the genuine history of the period of each season. Black Adder - The Complete Collector's Set review But wait there's more! Also featured is a short bio on the stars, which includes Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Tim McInnerny and Miranda Richardson. Leaving aside the fact that the first Black Adder series is totally different to the rest (in terms of style, characterisations, jokes) the whole set is ball-bouncingly funny. Even funnier than one of Chaplin's films. Giggle as Percy describes a 'horse with two heads and two bodies' ('two horses standing next to each other?'). Laugh as Blackadder falls in love with his manservant. Guffaw as Prince George takes a week to put on his trousers (and what a pair of trousers!). They somehow manage to get funnier with season, with Blackadder Goes Forth easily being the funniest of the lot (although this statement could be said to be subjective... ). The final episode packs a punch, though, for amongst the laughs is a powerful comment on the futility of war. Excellent stuff. Full marks for the main feature; full marks for the sheer volume and quality of the extras.

||Black Adder review|
Black Adder - The Complete Collector's Set DVD for sale This is a good value to have the complete series of Black Adder. Even though the earlier episodes can be a little "rough" production wise, having the complete series really shows how the characters evolved and production matured. An excellent value. MB.

Black Adder - The Complete Collector's Set DVD Features
Black Adder: The Complete Collection
One of the best comedy series ever to emerge from England, Black Adder traces the deeply cynical and self-serving lineage of various Edmund Blackadders from the muck of the Middle Ages to the frontline of World War I. In his pre-Bean triumph, British comic actor Rowan Atkinson played all five versions of Edmund, beginning with the villainous and cowardly Duke of Edinburgh, whose scheming mind and awful haircut seem to stand him in good stead to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury--a deadly occupation if ever there was one. Among tales of royal dethronings, Black Death, witch smellers (who root out spell makers with their noses), and ghosts, Edmund is a perennial survivor who never quite gets ahead in multiple episodes.
