Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Season 3 sees the fortunes of the Blackadder family somewhat in decline with the advent of the Regency period. Edmund is now butler and confidante to George, the Prince Regent, a dandified dunderhead who can't even figure out how to put on his own pantaloons. But it's an ideal opportunity for Blackadder to make buckets of cash, and even become Prince Regent himself. Unfortunately, he veers from calamity to disaster with little in the way of constructive help from his imbecilic Lord and Master — or Baldrick, of whom the least said the better. Classic comedy starring Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson.

A Cunning Plan
Edmund Blackadder and company are at their prime in this Third Season. You could start here and work your way back to the second, up to the fourth and finally way back to the first season, but if you were to start with the first season you could get the wrong impression. The show is seriously funny, but the first season... yeah...not so much.
And never let Christmas go by without Blackadder's Christmas Carol. There you have it, "a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel."
This television show has got to be one of the best I have ever seen! It is witty, funny, clever, and an absolute classic. If you want to get a taste of true, dry British humor, this is the show to watch. My father watched it twenty years ago, and he's still quoting it today. I, personally, LOVE this show and would recommend it to anyone I met. So, please, buy it. You haven't truly seen television until you've seen this show.
Blackadder the Third
One of the best British comedies. Simply brilliant!
