Get Six Free Episodes Of Blackadder From iTunes

It’s all a big promotion for Johnny English Reborn, and it will likely encourage a lot of new Blackadder fans to purchase the other three series and the superb Blackadder’s Christmas Carol special,* but it seems wonderfully generous that between now and October 21st, iTunes users can have the entirety of Blackadder II for free. And this is to keep, too, not just to rent.

Or at least iTunes users in the States can. Maybe Canada too. You’ll have to tell me – I just know it’s not happening in the UK.**

Blackadder II is definitely worth your time. This was the series in which the show hit its stride. Which is to say, the first series was interesting and engaging but not too terribly funny. These are the episodes set in the Elizabethan era, and Miranda Richardson’s portrayal of the Queen is one of the all time great TV comedy creations – right alongside, of course, Rowan Atkinson’s portrayal of the scheming Edmund Blackadder. And it’s not as if the supporting cast aren’t brilliantly funny and memorable too.

You have the BBC to thank for the download link. Cheers, Auntie.

*Blackadder Back and Forth is a bit rubbish. For completists only, I’d say.

** Maybe you can fool it to think you’re in the US. I think people do things like that all of the time.
