Black Adder II
Synopsis: England 1558-1603. The nasty genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble back to the surface as Lord Edmond swaggers around town with a big head and a small beard in search of grace and favor from the stark raving mad Queen Bess. Accompanied by a rabble of riff-raff, the dastardly Lord Blackadder tarnishes the reputation of England's Golden Age.

Episodes:
  • BELLS - Edmund is reasonably normal - until he meets Bob.
  • HEAD - Edmund's enthusiasm as the new Minister in charge of Religous Genocide and Lord High Executioner lands him in trouble.
  • POTATO - Blackadder sets out on a quest for new potatoes and to boldly go where Sir Walter Raleigh has already gone before.
  • MONEY - Edmund is distressed when a baby-eating Bishop drops by and tries to place a red hot poker in places where a cotton swab would be kinder.
  • BEER - An embarrassing incident with a turnip, an ostrich feather, and a fanatically puritan aunt lead to a right royal to do in the Blackadder household.
  • CHAINS - When Edmund finds himself chest-high in iron spikes, he has but one course of action - charades with a crazed Spanish interrogator
