I was raised watching Blackadder. I haven't seen a lot of the episodes in at least two years, so I'm collecting them on DVD. Of course season two was the first I bought. And Back and Forth is being shipped off e-bay. Can't wait to see it, because it's the only one of the series I have yet to see! Fave episode so far: Potato

Queen: "If he's really handsom, I'm thinking about marrying him." Blackadder: "Ma'am, isn't that a little rash?" Queen: Scoffs, "I hardly think so!" Nursie: "It wouldn't be your first little rash if it was!"
I've just recently watched this on YouTube, and then my lovely British friend sent me the series 2 dvd via Amazon to Blackadderless Canada, And I have to say - Miranda is most outrageously hillarious in this show, really, funnier than Atkinson. I mean, seriously. Queenie is best. I really don't know how or why I hadn't watched this sooner.
Does anyone have any favourite lines from Blackadder?
Other then the aforementioned "Concrete Elephant" speech, I adore the scene in Potato where she asks if she looks "absolutely divine and regal, and yet at the same time very pretty and rather accessible"... cracks me up. I use both lines going out drinking, and as a guy, to my unmirandaized friends who wouldn't even know Rowan Atkinson outside of Mr Bean, the look of confusion is just excellent.
Also, her poem. Shakespeare helped me with the title but the rest was all me.

Lol Blackadder introduced me to Miranda, I have them all on Dvd in a boxset....I love 2nd and 3rd....fave episodes are Beer, Head and Chains Fave Queenie Quotes:
Queen: 'It all started last night about two o'clock. I was tucked into bed, having this awfully scrummy dream about ponies, when I was awakened by a terrific banging from Lord Melchett'. Blackadder: ' Well, I never knew he had it in him'. Queen: 'It's true, I promise. He was banging on the castle gates and falling over and singing a strange song about a girl who possessed something called a dickie die doe?'
Queen: 'Are you sure? I have some pretty wild dreams, you know. I'm not sure what they mean, but the other day, there was this enormous tree, and I was sitting right on top of it....' Melchett: 'Ma'am...' Queen: 'And then I dreamt once that I was a sausage roll....'
