    Rowan Atkinson is always fantastic. Pink Tights and Plenty of Props is still one of my all-time favorite stage productions

    I heard this was a Blackadder thread and I came as fast as I could

    I wasted years of my life thinking that Rowan Atkinson was just Mr. Bean, and I've been making up time since then. It is probably no surprise that Blackadder Goes Forth is my favourite, but they're all so good. And his standup is excellent, too.

    It's a toss-up between Blackadder the first and Blackadder the third for me

    Though Blackadder goes forth is admittedly incredibly hilarious

    I was very surprised when I found out that was Tom Baker. Looking back on it now, I can't see how I missed it previously.

    That is my favourite episode! It's from Blackadder II, and the episode is called Potato. Incidentally, not only is Redbeard Tom Baker, Raleigh is the guy who played Arthur Dent on the BBC version of the Hitchhiker's Guide.

    speakin of random british tv shows, has anyone checked out the inbetweeners? love it to death, but god, it had some moments that made me cringe so hard. while i didn't have quite the same wacky adventures, it really strucka chord with me and is the best high school show i've seen since freaks and geeks

    I like the Inbetweeners but every time I see it I think about how it's a pale shadow of series 1-3 of Peep Show.

    My favourite series of Blackadder is a toss-up between 2 and 3.

    Darkplace is amazing and the Dean Learner / Garth Marenghi / Todd Rivers in-character commentary on the DVD is pure gold. They point out all the inconsistencies and mention every time a shot was done in Dean's garage.

    Dean Lerner's rant about def leppard is one of my favourite comedy monologues of all time and I think of it every time I need to remember how to spell def leppard

    that was the first and second time

    I haven't ever actually watched the extras on the DVD! I should do that

    [edit]There's another British comedy that I feel like only ten people watched, called Nighty Night, which is as black as the night and incredibly funny. You should all watch that too.

    I actually found Nighty Nighty was a bit too much black with a bit too little comedy. It was good, but there's a point at which "isn't what she's saying awful?" isn't cringe comedy, it's just cringing. Also Kevin Eldon is in it and he's up there with the worst journeyman comics in England today.

    I get that too. The scene where Cathy buys Jill jewellery is horrible. But I don't tend to come out thinking 'oh man this is too bad I can't laugh at this'. I still enjoy it, if you know what I mean.

    I have never heard of darkplace till this thread, I will have to check it out, not on netflix though so i guess ill go the old fashion route and check blockbuster.

    i have watched a couple episodes of blackadder and loved it, recently i watched all 12 episodes of Fawlty Towers which was absolutely delightful.

    Darkplace is pretty much all on Youtube. Did they ever make more than the six or seven episodes?

    No. Six episodes (one British series).
