Origianlly Blackadder was set in the Middle Ages to carry Rowan Atkinsons devious character. By the time Queen Elizabeth I comes along he is much more sophisticated. Blackadder, Baldrick & co move through British history to comedic effect.

Was the final scene in Blackadder Goes Forth justifiable?

To be honest with you I think that Blackadder is awesome and the ending was quite good it was an emotional one but I had the concept of a season 5 blackadder 2005 in my head. I dont see why they don't make one everyone would love it the same as Red Dwarf back to earth its just tasteless people who would rather watch Neighbours who prevent another Blackadder, but yes, I myself think Blackadders' ending was justifiable.And I think its a matter of opinionI believe the ending in Blackadder was justifiable. Indeed, the final series which was set in WW1 was great, well written and very funny. However, the final scence shows us that ultimately, in reality there was nothing funny about it.
