I’ve already mentioned one of the most amazing British TV shows of all time here on my blog. (No, this time I’m not talking about Doctor Who.) Blackadder is definitely my all-time favourite sitcom and one of Rowan Atkinson’s best works.
This time, I want to shed some light on season 3, which is set in the late 18th century.
#1 – Hugh Laurie as Prince Regent:
We’ve encountered many great characters and actor during the other two season, but Hugh Laurie as the hilariously stupid Prince Regent is among my favourites. I hadn’t know that he would join the cast for season 3, so I ended up pleasantly surprised.
#2 – Queenie makes a Comeback!
One of the best characters in season 2 was undoubtedly Queenie. Miranda Richardson (who in my head shall forever be named Queenie) also takes on a little role in this season. I don’t want to add any spoilers here, but that episode is definitely my favourite in season 3. It’s super funny and comes with huge plot-twist!
#3 – The Downfall of Blackadder:
From season two season Blackadder seems to go down the ladder of success. While he was the Duke of Edinburgh in season #1, by know he is just a butler. I love how it sheds a different light on Rowan Atkinson’s characters and allows him to vary his play. If anything, the Blackadder in season three is even more sarcastic than ever and it just fits perfectly!
#4 – The Episode Titles:
Whoever named the episodes deserves an award. Just reading the different titles made me laugh out loud! We get stuff like Sense and Senility. Well, maybe it’s just me who can giggle at such nonsense, but I found it hilarious!
