Blackadder quite rightly features high in the best comedy thread.
I think 'Goes Fourth was the best series, what does everyone else think?

Ah, but that's only because none of the other Blackadders ever said "wubble".

It's a tough one, but I voted third, on the grounds that "Duel and Duality" has both Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie in, and is very funny indeed, and I have never seen the foretelling.

On returning to this thread I found I had made some terrible typos (now edited) but worst of all, my last option in the vote has gone so nobody can vote for my favourite.
I have no idea how to put it back in.

What a cruel twist of fate.

From previous attempts I think you have to put in one more option than you want to appear in your list of options. Not sure whether leaving it blank/filling it in matters, can't remember.

You should get the option to do this if you edit your initial post.

The Beeb (and everybody else) refuse to show Captain Cook again don't they? Perhaps someone can tell us if this is so. I know why if that is the case but I think it's slightly sad.

II because of the mix of Queenie, Nursey, Melchet, Percy and Baldrick was just about perfect. Then Forth, III, Foretelling (Which I thought was generally underated).

"I may have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the stomach of a concrete elephant"

"And in Genoa, 'tis now the fashion to pin a live frog to the shoulder-braid, stand on a bucket, and go 'Bibble' at passers-by."

The Foretelling is my favourite period but the gags are better later. All good though

That's good, very good, in fact it's so good I'm going to have to...cheat <twang>.

I'm partial to second. As much as I've watched it , I think I would have to go with II , or III.

Haha , Lord Flashheart was priceless. WOOF!

Well now. I think that's a damned tough decision, but I'll go for III on the basis of Stephen Fry as the Duke of Wellington claiming that military success was 'all down to shouting'. :)

II wins it by a whisker for me, with III and IV neck and neck.

II, because Queenie was a bit tasty (I like red-heads, so what! Her nose was cute), nursey was barmy, Percy was...well....Percy and Bladders and Balders were the best comedy double act.

It also introduced Lord Flasheart...Hurrah! Woof! Sir Walter Rather-a-Wally Raleigh, and the Baby Eating Bishop Of Bath And Wells.

It probably had the best one liners in it too...

"Thank you, young crone. Here is a bag of monies....that I am NOT going to give you."

"'So you know her then?' 'No, it was a mere stab in the dark, which incidentally is what you'll be receiving...'"

" can either drop it, or have your head cut off"

"Nursey! I like it firm and fruity....WOOF!"

And of course, Tom Baker as a rather odd sailor...genius casting!

AGGH so hard to decide! I haven't seen much of the first series so I can't say anything about that, but I love the othere three series. Blackadder II just about wins*, with series 3 and 4 joint second.

*one word: Bob.

a few more: shorty, greasy spot-spot. Priceless.
