The Black Adder is where it all began, and Captain Edmund Blackadder is where it ended. Spanning four series, this show looks at the lives of four different people of the same lineage, sharing the same name. Loaded with historical inaccuracies and not highly believable, it's nevertheless distinctive and appealing in its writing. Especially beginning with Blackadder-II, when Ben Elton signed on to help write the series, Blackadder has been characteristically bad-tempered and self-centred, yet, highly intelligent and witty. The other constant throughout the series is his sidekick Baldrick, whose character also changes with Elton's arrival and becomes increasingly stupid, especially when juxtapositioned with the sharp Blackadder.
