Monthly Podcast; Redemption. The Blackadder, Series 1 Episode 1.

Welcome to the Classic Cult TV Club, (CCtvC), with Justin, Cassandra, Lisa, Makenzie, Angus, Baylor and Janette.

And the Redemption continues… The Classic Cult Tv Club have been watching and reviewing beloved old television favourites now for over six years and may not have always done justice to the subject. Sometimes it was a poor choice of episode or the circumstances were not conducive to the situation. So it has been decided that this year is “redemption year” and each “culter” is going to suggest one show that they feel was not fairly reviewed and deserves a second chance.

So Blackadder. The classic British comedy of the eighties. It is embedded in our cultural memory. The Cultures watched Blackadder a Christmas Carol, many a Christmas ago but that is not really representative of the series, and does not do it justice. So we wound back to begin at the beginning, the first episode of the first series. The Foretelling.

And does it hold up? Will it be necessary to watch one episode from every subsequent series before Blackadder is fully redeemed?

The episode first aired in the U.K on 15th June, 1983. IT was directed by Marin Shardlake, Written by Richard Curtis, Rowan Atkinson and William Shakespeare, and stared Rowan Atkinson as Edmund Blackadder, (Sir) Tony Robinson as Baldrick, Tin McInnery as Percy, Elspeth Gray as The Queen and Brian Blessed as Richard IV.

History will never be the same again..
