Blackadder: Now, look, Percy, I don't mean to be pedantic or anything, but the color of gold... is gold. That's why it's called gold. What YOU have discovered, if it has a name, is some... Green.

Lord Percy Percy: [removes lump of Green from pot] Oh, Edmund... can it be true? That I hold here, in my mortal hand, a nugget of purest Green?

Lord Percy Percy: Yes indeed, Percy, except that it's not really a nugget but more of a splat.

Blackadder: Right Baldrick, let's try again shall we? This is called adding. If I have two beans, and then I add two more beans, what do I have?

Baldrick: Some beans.

Blackadder: Yes... and no. Let's try again shall we? I have two beans, then I add two more beans. What does that make?

Baldrick: A very small casserole.

Blackadder: Baldrick, the ape creatures of the Indus have mastered this. Now try again. One, two, three, four. So how many are there?

Baldrick: Three.

Blackadder: What?

Baldrick: ...and that one.

Blackadder: Three and that one. So if I add that one to the three what will I have?

Baldrick: Oh. Some beans.

Blackadder: Yes. To you Baldrick, the Renaissance was just something that happened to other people, wasn't it?

Blackadder:
Percy, this is a very difficult situation.

Percy:
Yes, my lord.

Blackadder:
Someone's for the chop. You or me, in fact.

Percy:
Ah, yes...

Blackadder:
Let's face facts, Perc: it's you!

Percy:
[nervously] Except, ex-cept... I may have a plan!

Blackadder:
[dryly] Oh, yes...

Percy:
Yes, eh... How about if we get Lord Farrow's head and body and we take it to the Queen. Except, ex-cept... just before we get in, we start shouting and screaming, and then we come in saying "We were just on our way when he said something traitorous, and so we cut his head off in the corridor just to teach him a lesson!"

Blackadder:
Pathetic! Absolutely pathetic! Contemptible! Worth a try! Where did we put the head?

The Black Adder is one of the most superb comedy series I've ever viewed. Frankly, I could watch an episode every day. I do not consider it possible that humor can become 'dated' -- or else why do people still read Shakespeare's comedies? The juicy, low-brow humor of Elizabethan England is obviously one of the reasons. What I like most about Blackadder is that it gives us a full picture of British history and of how the Englishman sees himself today. Rowan Atkinson, who is no fool, contributed to the first volume of this series and made an indelible image of the underhanded fool who nearly gained the throne of England through cowardice, cunning and sheer dumb luck in 1497. Atkinson's comedy is the full package and the entire series is highly recommended. Put your thinking cap on and Limey Up!

The humor seemed a bit dated...I had trouble getting back into the show.
