For those who followed Rowan Atkinson before he became Mr. Bean and starred in movies that made it to the USA, iTunes is now offering the second season of Blackadder for viewing at no cost.
Go here and enjoy!
For those new to Blackadder, but eager to see Rowan Atkinson is a different type show, with the same caustic wit he displayed in some of his stand up comedy, a quick summary of Blackadder:
The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble back to the surface of
the melting pot of history for a second series. Now a favourite at the
Court of Elizabeth I, Edmund Blackadder keeps his head from being
chopped off by the capricious Queen with rapier-sharp wit, cunning and
bravado. Meanwhile, his rival Lord Melchett loses no opportunity to try
to disgrace him. Once again Blackadder is accompanied by a small rabble
of riff-raff, including bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brained Percy,
together they manage to lower the whole tone of England's Golden Age.
Classic comedy starring Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson.
