12/07/10 – Blackadder’s Christmas Carol
Though technically not a movie, this TV special is without a doubt a Christmas classic. With it’s sharp tongued wit, complete arseing of the original source material’s meaning and its who’s who of great British actors, Blackadder’s Christmas Carol should be on every person’s wish list.
There have been so many different versions of A Christmas Carol, it is hard to keep track of which one is which. However, Blackadder’s version sticks out head and shoulders above most. It is right up there with Rich Little… that’s right, I said it…
If anything you need to watch just to hear the classic line, “Baldrick, I want you to go out and buy a turkey so large you’d think it’s mother had been rogered by an omnibus.”
