Includes:Black Adder II: Bells (1986) Black Adder II: Head (1986) Black Adder II: Money (1986) Black Adder II: Beer (1986) Black Adder II: Chains (1986) Black Adder II: Potato (1986) Black Adder II: Bells Returning to British TV after a three-year absence, the satirical sitcom The Black Adder once again starred Rowan Atkinson, this time as Lord Edmund Blackadder, illegitimate great-great-grandson of the original series' delightfully scurrilous anti-hero. Blackadder II was ushered in on January 9, 1986, with the episode titled "Bells." The scene is England; the year, 1558. Lord Edmund can't understand why he is so attracted to his new manservant Bob. He gets his answer in a hurry: "Bob" is really Kate (Gabrielle Glaster), who has disguised herself as a boy to escape a life of prostitution. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder II: Head Newly appointed the Lord High Executioner, Lord Edmund Blackadder takes his new responsibilities quite seriously. Assigned to remove the head of the "blasphemous" Lord Farrow, Edmund does so with dispatch and Ã©lan. Unfortunately, he discovers ex post facto that Lord Farrow has been pardoned by the Queen (Miranda Richardson). "Head" originally aired in England on January 16, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder II: Money Lord Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) is heavily in debt to the Bishop of Bath and Wales (Roland Lacey), a disagreeable sort who eats babies for fun. In his efforts to raise the necessary money, Edmund runs into an unexpected obstacle: his own Queen Elizabeth I (Miranda Richardson). Can our "hero" wriggle out of this one, or will this be the only 12-minute TV show in history? "Money" was originally telecast on February 5, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder II: Beer Ever anxious to one-up his fellow man, Lord Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) enters a beer-drinking contest. On the same day as the Big Event, who should show up but Edmund's puritanical, teetotalling uncle and aunt, Lord and Lady Whiteadder (Daniel Thorndike, Miriam Margoyles). Adding to Edmund's woes is an unfortunate run-in with a turnip and an ostrich feather. "Beer" made its first British television appearance on February 11, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder II: Chains The second series of Blackadder episodes ended on February 20, 1986, with "Chains." In response to a series of high-profile political abductions, Queen Elizabeth I (Miranda Richardson) adopts a strict no-ransom policy. Almost as if on cue, Lord Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) and his crony Lord Melchett (Stephen Fry) are kidnapped by Prince Ludwig of Germany (Hugh Laurie). Edmund's peril intensifies when he is placed in the hands of a Spanish interrogator (Max Harvey) right out of a Monty Python sketch. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder II: Potato Lord Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) seethes with jealousy when Sir Walter Raleigh, freshly returned from the New World, presents Queen Elizabeth (Miranda Richardson) with a potato. Vowing that anything Sir Walter can do, he can do better, Edmund sets out on an exploring expedition of his own. Alas and alack, he secures the services of England's least reliable mariner, Captain Redbeard Rum (Tom Baker). "Potato" was first telecast on January 23, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
