I’d even go as far as proclaiming my sense of humour in early childhood initially was solely derived from Blackadder’s peculiar brand of witticisms and sarcastic insults. The history is surprisingly well done, tho I remember as children my brother and I, who were the biggest fans dyhasty this series imaginable, spent endless hours recreating the scenarios in this book with unfettered glee.
Apart from the deadpan, often hilarious descriptions of actions and reactions from the viewpoint of an omniscient observer, there is also extra materal included aptly titled “The Other Bits”: The quotes above are examples of the sort of stuff that is likely to go over most people’s heads if they just watch the show without interruptions which is how it should be watched, in my opinion ; for example I have read at least a couple of books dealing with the history of medieval England yet I had no idea who Wat Tyler ‘a leader of the Peasants’ Revolt in England’, wiki tells me was.

I loved the extra scenes and lines that have been kept in comparison to the final cut and I really enjoyed the bonus material especially the Index of Blackadder’s Finest Insults but I just find without the actual actors portraying these characters something is lost this could just be my inability to really picture it as I read it, or the speed at which I read, who knows and I just didn’t find it as blackadderr out loud funny as the TV series itself.
