Описание: В Испании — война, христиане борются с турецким нашествием. Принц Эдмунд идиотничает вовсю и не может понять, почему ему никогда не быть королем. По ходу сериала принц Эдмунд становится герцогом Эдинбургским, архиепископом Кентерберийским, герцогом Гастингским и, наконец, Черной Гадюкой. За каждым его превращением — вполне определенный исторический контекст.
Prince Edmund, a.k.a. the Black Adder, constantly schemes to take the crown from his father and brother with the help of Lord Percy and Baldrick.
Рецензии: It seems that Rowan Atkinson's most famous character is Mr. Bean. This TV series, The Black Adder, starring the great comedian, came out six years beforehand. In just about everything I've seen Rowan in, he's been so funny, and The Black Adder is certainly no exception. This show was first on three years before I was born, so I obviously didn't see it then, but I've seen reruns of the show quite a few times over the past few years, especially recently. This show was a sitcom that took place in the Middle Ages. Rowan Atkinson played the main character, Prince Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh, a.k.a. Black Adder, a very nasty, self-centred, sarcastic man. Certainly not someone you would want to meet in real life, but sure is funny as a comedy character. If you're a fan of good British comedy, and you haven't seen The Black Adder, then I suggest you check it out as soon as you get the chance!
