I *am* the Queen of England


...and while I may have the body of a week and feeble woman, I have the heart and stomach of a concrete elephant.

Recent discussion with thamiris gave me the bug to revisit the joy that is Blackadder, and the glory that is Miranda Richardson as Queen Elizabeth I.

Hence, new userpic. (And you'd be boggled to know how hard it is to find BA pics anywhere online!)

And more quotage:

Oh, how I do wish Edmund could be here. He always loved parties, and always always wore very very tight tights...

As if I didn't have enough of them already, you may have just inspired me to add to my video collection by going into HMV tomorrow and buying any Blackadder video I can lay my hands on.

I'm so easily influenced.

Now write that Blackadder/Flash you mentioned.

Go on, I double dare you.

--ben, who is not in any way trying to persuade you to cater to her weird childhood/adolescent crush on Rik Mayall and all his incredibly unpleasant characters. Because I never had one. No, not me. I never went looking for Bottom slash online either, because there isn't any. Not that I want there to be.
Love the new icon.

That's canon

Flash and ol' Slack-bladder? Pfft. That's canon ;)

Of course the question for the day is if you've seen Blackadder V.

Do you mean that Blackadder Back and Forth special? Or was there another new Blackadder series entirely, she asked with great eagerness?

Flash and Slack, pfft. Give me some George and Melchett and I'm as happy as a lamb in clover. :-D

She means the Back and Forth special, I assume. They're trying to bill it as BA 5, when seling it at Amazon, at least.

I haven't seen it, so they can call it Revenge of Edmund's leaky Bic pen, and I'd still want it.

Damn funny, it was. J bought it for Xmas for me. On DVD with behind the scenes stuff. Thought I'd see if I could make those eyes just a bit more green. ;-)

Not pointing out that I suggested we watch it, when we were trying to decide what to watch, and you lot decided you wanted to see Shanghai Noon... Which of course I also liked, so win-win, really.

Oh yeah, I remember that, vaguely. Very vaguely. Well, maybe next time you're up? Over? Whatever.

I remember so much of that night very vaguely...

ahhh... what would I do without friends that can create huge gaping blanks in my memory without the use of alcohol, tobacco, firearms, drugs, or other interesting and yet illegal-in-the possession-of-a-two-year-old things.

That would be the night I kicked your collective arses at Outburst, I believe. I begin to see a pattern in this selective memory-loss...

It's on the DVD set, along with the Christmas Carol parody and a very strange English Civil War special which entailed Baldrick being pawed and kissed by Oliver Cromwell. Hmm. FYI.

Yeah, back and forth. Get it on DVD. Well worth the money. =)

Specifying *Elizabethan* Flash - it's the era that bests suits him I think. Bob goes will in an army uniform though ...

Oh God - hidious mental image of RedDwarf/Blackadder Flash Slash. *purge brain!, purge brain!*

Yes, Elizabethan Flash. Favourite Flash, favourite Edmund. KateBob... I like both Elizabethan and WWI.

I will not think about Bladders/KateBob/Flash. It's disturbing.

Oh God. Flash/Ace Rimmer. Yup!

There's not enough room in one slash story for that much ego! I doubt they could shut up long enough to get anything else done. Smoke me a kipper! Woof!

I looooove it!

The scary thing is that Ace -- the origihnal, not-our-Rimmer Ace (who really wasn't the original, I know, but the first one we met) really doesn't *have* an ego. S'why he annoys our Rimmer so much. He's proud and manly and heroic, but he gives the credit to everybody else on the team, and it seems like he really means it.

Not to say that Ace/Flash still wouldn't be hilarious. because evrything Flash could do, Ace could do better, and still be modest about it!

Does this mean I don't have to be ashamed of my teenage crush on Rick from The Young Ones anymore? It doesn't? Okay, never mind.

No, but it means you're allowed to admit that you thought Drop Dead Fred was hot.

Dude! Rick totally rocks! He's the people's poet! (Pollution... all around....sometimes up, and sometimes.... down)

God - TYO on DVD. There's an investment I need to make.

It's on DVD?! Yes! Oh, wait, that makes it harder to skip over the Alexei Sayle monologues. Two-edged sword, I suppose...

Actually I don't know if it's on DVD, but everything else in the UK seems to be. Granted I still need to get a multi-region player. Stupid things that cost money. Grumble.

Blackadder rules! I started watching it because of CG (a friend of mine has all the tapes) and now it's my new obsession. But yeah, it is impossible to find anything on it...

;-)

I can find *sites* on it, and they have scrips and sounds, but *images* are nigh unto nonexistant. Queenie here is from the cover of the BAII VHS, and those are almost the only shots you can find - book and video and DVD covers. No screencaps or promo photos. meh.
