Not a big fan of Blackadder, but this is one of the most gut wrenching things ever filmed. A pretty bold move to end a comedy show on such a tragic note. One of the things I watch or listen to every Remembrance Day.
When filming it, apparently it didn't look that convincing. I did see it on a Blackadder documentary once. The editing completely saved it, and it has to be one of the best "final scenes" of anything I've seen.
My favourite aspect of this is how Blackadder doesn't mock George, Baldrick or Darling. He remains calm, cynical and still cracks jokes in the face of death, but stands by his men to the end.
The epitome of a 'stiff upper lip'.
Jokes on you OP, I already know how this scene goes and don't feel like going to bed sad.
one of the all time great comedy series. if you haven't watched it you're missing out
Genius ending a comedy with a massive jolt, hats off to Ben Elton.
Entire series is on Amazon Prime.
Is this movie on netflix or hulu or amazon prime video or something :(
