21 Reasons "Blackadder" Is The Best And Most Culturally Important Show Britain Has Ever Made

“I have a cunning plan.”

1. Well, obviously, because Stephen Fry is wearing comedy boobs.

BBC

Do I even need to give you more reasons?

2. It’s a showcase of the fine British talent.

BBC

3. Stephen Fry also had a damn fine ‘tasche.

BBC

Notice a theme here, huh?

4. It was also Hugh Laurie’s finest role.

BBC

DEFINITELY.

5. Blackadder also taught us how to identify the many Baldrick-esque characters in the world.

BBC

6. And how to deal with the aforementioned fools.

BBC

7. It taught us about self-worth and self-love.

BBC

NB: These were (are?!) foreign and exotic American concepts.

8. But it also appreciated that life is hard.

BBC

9. Like REALLY hard.

BBC

Ugh.

10. Which brings us nicely onto: British Drinking

BBC

11. We take our drinking quite seriously.

BBC

(Chunder means vomit, sometimes you just need a tactical chunder to see the night through.)

12. Blackadder taught us to appreciate life.

BBC

YOLO, right?

13. Even if just by yourself.

BBC

14. Because you can bet Baldrick’s plan isn’t really that great.

BBC

15. So it taught us how to dream.

BBC

16. And how to be a cynic simultaneously.

BBC

Like a true Brit.

17. It also taught us history.

BBC

18. And the appropriate way to address the Queen.

BBC

Maybe.

19. And what to bring with us.

BBC

20. Blackadder made us cry more than any other comedy.

BBC

I can’t even.

21. WE MISS THIS.

BBC

Come back?
