I saw it at the dome, top stuff! Luckilly they didn't have the 'canned laughter' overlayed onto it, it seems much better without it.

Now not a spoiler as it was on 10 secs ago

Blackadder punches Will Shakespear

Blackadder: That is for every schoolboy and schoolgirl for the next 400 years

Also:
Blackadder: One of times greatest mysteries solved. The dinosaurs were infact wiped out by your underpants.

Actually Back and Forth was the first BlackAdder I had ever seen. I always thought the show was stupid until I actually watched it after Back and Forth cuz I never spent anytime to listen to it. And now I don't mind the show cuz I"ve seen Back and Forth.
I thought it was great. It was a very smart piece of writing and I love the idea of it. What the hey, I"m gonna bring out the whole shabang - rating it 4. Great!

I was a one-off wasn't it? I saw it ages ago, but it wasn't as good as the 2nd and 4th series.

Blackadder Goes Forth--not to be confused with the movie Blackadder Back and Forth, mind you--was so flawless and the ending so heartwrenching that I've forgotten the fairly blah third series. Haven't seen the movie save for small bits, and don't think I'll like it, but I think it's in the DVD set, so I will see it eventually.

Good but not great, the best series was series 2 in my opinion. Scariest thing about it was that it was made especially for the dreaded Millinium Dome what a waste of my tax money that was.

I've just borrowed all 4 Series of Blackadder off my auntie so I'm in the middle of watching them all  smile I've never seen "Back and Forth", has it just got Blackadder and Baldrick in it or does it have some of the other actors who were in the original Blackadders with them. Such as Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Tim McInnerny?  smile

The Internet Movie Database is an excellent source for questions like this and much much more. Here's Blackadder Back And Forth; you can also find the others at the IMDb, of course.

(Futurama fans will appreciate the "Crazy Credits" listed for this one. Check!)

I liked it. It was funny and good, but not quite as good as the original TV shows in my opinion. Good but not great.

-Ahem- I don't think any tax money was actually spent on building the dome or financing any films associated with it. The problems arose when it actually closed...

BBAF was "horrible". Simply becasue all the other Blackadders before it set such a high standard, making this 'special' appear like a mouldy can of tripe.

I watched the video at my mate's house. But on the TV version, it had laughing and sorry but i cant stand this. Its one of those fake audience laughs like they have on Sabrina (the teenage witch!)

It wasn't on the original in the Dome, 1 advantage. I also downloaded a version and that didn't have it.
