1. You guys were right. I just went downstairs and found Bunny inside the walls of Fort Bunsworth. Damn and blast! Now I'm going to have to figure out a way of strengthening the defences.

2. It's nice to be able to report that Blackadder II is still very, very funny. What would it cost to assemble that cast today? And, on a sadly quizzical note, whatever happened to Rowan Atkinson? There he was, arguably the funniest man in the English speaking world- and what has he done since?

Johnny English? well yes, quite...

3. I love Rome, but does anybody else? There was a piece in the Guardian this morning calling it a turkey and castigating the BBC for wasting the licence-payers' money. And this seems to be the general opinion. Could I be wrong? No, I don't see how that could possibly be- my critical acumen and good taste are legendary.

the first series is rather weak, but i usually cannot help but giggle at brian blessed's manic performance.;)

I love the conclusion of series 4, where suddenly, inexplicably, the silliness gives way to tragedy.

I have watched the last episode only once. It so shook and upset me, that I cannot bring myself to view it again.

Blessed is always fun. I don't know what's wrong with series one. All the ingredients are there, but they don't quite gell. I guess the biggest change was bringing in Ben Elton as co-writer.

That final episode made me cry. It's a quite extraordinary way to end a sit-com.

That millennium Blackadder was just, um, strange.

But every Christmas I make time for Blackadder's Christmas Carol. My sweetie doesn't see the point, but he watches because he likes to watch me watch.

Atkinson wearing Baldrick's posey pouch--cometo think of it, *Baldrick* wearing Baldrick's posey pouch...oh dear... my eyes, my eyes.
