Like a skidmark through history the Edmund Blackadders left an indelible dirty stain on every era they passed through. No one knows where the notorious Blackadder family originated from - some say the shallow end of the gene pool, others just nod and point to the cess-pit behind the pig-sheds.

Every new era produces a more contemptuous Edmund Blackadder, each incarnation bearing a striking resemblance to the last, carrying forward the family traditions of cowardice, treachery and political corruption. Accompanying each generation of Edmund Blackadders is the 'Baldrick' family, a loyal breed of human pack-animal and the byword for all things stupid.

Blackadder's Christmas Carol: 'A Christmas Carol' Blackadder-style. Bet you can't guess who the Scrooge is?

Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth and virtue completely mucked up and ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Also Baldrick, of course, the man you can rely on to turn a Christmas dinner into a dog's dinner, as long as the dog isn't particularly fussy. Stuffed with deeply horrid people (many of whom are gigantically fat) and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze in not only a Victorian Black Adder but also his famous Elizabethan, Regency and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment that will satisfy all but the most discriminating viewers.

Blackadder - Back And Forth: It's New Year's Eve 1999 and Lord Edmund Blackadder and friends are gathered to celebrate the Millennium. Blackadder discloses he has built a time machine - and to prove it works he proposes a wager of £10,000 to anyone who cares to name an historical object for him to collect on his journey through time... Blackadder bids his friends farewell and steps into the time machine and he and Baldrick set upon a journey spanning centuries.

oh thats a shame i paid £25 instore on saturday for hubbys birthday .. bet he has opened them too!!

Great find been looking to pick this up for ages Cheers!

Cheers, first xmas present bought!

Presumably 'remastered' means they've cleaned up the film, maybe redone the captions and little else. This would have been recorded on 1" videotape, and therefore of dubious technical quality to start with.

It's not like the remastering of Star Trek TNG, where going back to 35mm can produce a huge improvement.

quality not that great for s1... don't forget it was designed for a 15inch CRT so dont even try on your 52" plasma!!
some reviews say Complete edition is better.

Absolute bargain. Been looking for this at a good price for a while. Ordered - 8% Quidco as well as well as clubcard points

Thanks OP - heat added

Great deal, another pressie sorted.

Must be getting near Christmas, hence the "Remastered" not sure the first series would be that improved as how it was shot was low grade to start with as was Red Dwarf love both but sure looks rough on the 40 LCD with the cry from the wife of "not watchin them again !" :-)

Cheers for this, I had ummed and ahhed too long and missed it when it was £18 instore

Good price, but I was lucky enough to get this for £3 on release when an Amazon Marketplace seller listed the price wrong and honoured it...still the best deal I've ever gotten. Heat for this price.

Great deal for a fantastic show (although series 1 is very 'meh', Ben Elton really turned it around from there)
