Blackadder is widely regarded as one of the greatest British sitcoms of all time but there is a real lack of quality in today's modern British Sitcoms. Gone are the days of Only Fools and Horses, Fawlty Towers and One Foot in the Grave, instead we have underwhelming shows such as Miranda and Mrs. Brown's Boys- hardly 'must see' TV. We British aren't used to the idea of American sitcoms besting ours, but sadly that is the case today. Our lacklustre contributions can hardly challenge the rise of such great American sitcoms as Community, How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. With British sitcoms currently disappointing and regularly being overshadowed by our American friends, is it time for a tried and tested classic like Blackadder to revive itself and the floundering British sitcom scene? We British need to somehow reclaim our title of the true Kings of Comedy. To support the idea, we take a look back at 10 of the funniest Blackadder moments to remind ourselves just how great it was.
