The funnest thing that Rowan Atkinson has ever been in.
An English comedy starring Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Miranda Richardson, Patsy Byrne, Tony Robinson and a lot of other awesome British actors.
Truly hilarious.
Written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton.
The best series is generally considered to be Blackadder II.

Blackadder (the comedy show) is genius, sheer unadulterated genius.

Blackadder II (the character) sums up all that is great about being English. Nasty, sarcastic, Euro-racist and doesn't suffer fools...
(During an archery practice)
Percy: Sorry I'm late.
Edmund (Blackadder): No, don't bother apologizing. I'm sorry you're alive.
Percy: Oh good, I see the target is ready. (Picks up the bow) I'd like to see the Spaniard who could make his way past me.
Edmund: Well, go to Spain. There are millions of them.
Percy: I'll advise them to stay there then. Keep their hands off our women.
Edmund: Oh God, who is she this time?
Percy: I don't know what you mean. Aah, ouch, aah. (Edmund succeeds in pilfering a letter from Percy)
Edmund: Aah, and who is Jane?
Percy: I'm sworn to secrecy. Torture me, kill me, you shall never know. Ooh, ouch... Jane Herrington. We're very much in love, my lord.
Edmund: This is the Jane Herrington?
Percy: Yes.
Edmund: Jane - bury-me-in-a-Y-shaped-coffin - Herrington.
Percy: I.., I think maybe there are two Jane Herringtons.
Edmund: No... Tall, blond, elegant?
Percy: Right, that's right.
Edmund: Goes like a privy door when the plague is in town? Come on, get on with your shot. You'll get over her... I did...

The above definition is not quite true. A Blackadder ending refers to the final sequence of events from the fourth series (Blackadder Goes Forth), a comedy set in the trenches of World War I, where the mood of a consistently comedic show unexpectedly switches to become utterly bleak.

In the original example, the final ten minutes of the series sees the main characters (in the trenches) change from joke-spewing, two-dimensional caricatures to emotional, terrified 'real' people. The commanding officers, until now cliche bumbling, upper-class idiots totally unsuited to their positions, are suddenly suggested to be not only totally aware they're sending millions to be slaughtered but also utterly at peace with it. The direction of the jokes shift, with the focus suddenly being on the futility of charging towards machines guns with revolvers/sticks and allusions to the pre-war lives they left behind.

It ends with four flawed but ultimately sympathetic characters charging over the top to their inevitable death and a fade out to the present day, their personal sacrifice ultimately forgotten. Sad music, slow-motion, tears.
'That Mitchell and Webb Look' had a Blackadder ending, it felt like a kick to the gut.

An ending to a show that's over the top. Refers to the ending of Blackadder BBC televsion show where all of the main characters were poisoned at the end, including the poisoner.
