Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. View all 12 comments. I loved the extra scenes and lines that have been kept in comparison to the final cut and I really enjoyed the bonus material especially the Index of Blackzdder Finest Insults but I just find without the actual actors portraying these characters something is lost this could just be my inability to really picture it as I read it, or the speed at which I read, who knows and I just didn’t find it as laugh out loud funny as the TV series itself.
Whoe my opinion, it is a book that’s well worth getting a copy for any fan of comedy in general. I remember as children my brother and I, who were the biggest fans of this series imaginable, spent endless hours recreating the scenarios in this book with unfettered glee. I therefore sentence you to be burned alive. Also, is there a more poignant ending to a comedy show in existence than the anti-war episode “Goodbyee”?
Lists with This Book. May 05, Carrie rated it it was amazing. See 1 question about Blackadder…. Would it hold up in written form, or fall flat like the scripts for say, Fawlty Towers did?

The extras included are quite satisfying as well. Almost as hilarious in script form though: If you’re not familiar with Blackadder, your glackadder is incomplete. I laughed till my body ached A must-have for Blackadder fans, and probably for any fan of British situational comedy. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Unlike The Complete Fawlty Towersreading the scripts for Blackadder was just as entertaining – if not almost even more so! Atkinson, create a fifth series which takes place during the sixties I’ll hold on to this volume until the day I die.

Open Preview See a Problem? The quotes above are examples of the sort blackadde stuff that is likely to go ramn most people’s heads if they just watch the show without interruptions which is how it should be watched, in my opinion ; for example I have read at least a couple of books dealing with the history of medieval England yet I had no idea who Wat Tyler ‘a leader of the Peasants’ Revolt in England’, wiki tells me was. Jul 14, Usfromdk rated it it was amazing.
One of the best comedies to come out of Britian in book format, what more can you ask for? If you can find it.
I was so excited to have all of the scripts together to enjoy the banter over and over again. I have watched the Blackadder series more than once, but some of the jokes included have always eluded me because of the speed with which things take place. I’d even go as far as proclaiming my sense of humour in early childhood initially was solely derived from Blackadder’s peculiar brand of witticisms and sarcastic insults.
Review The greatest work of fiction since vows of fidelity were included in the French marriage service. You should watch the series first — the actors add an awful lot to the characters.
It can’t NOT keep popping up now and then, playfully intruding on my life on a regular basis. Just as strong and impactful in written form. Infinitely quotable, highly rewatchable, it is a British comedy series I pretty much know by heart by now.

Also, if possible, can someone explain to be how “Goodbyeee” is somehow more poignant written down? The maximum penalty the law allows is to be burned to death.
