Blackadder: The Whole Damn Dynasty, 1485-1917
The extras included are quite satisfying as well. Apart from the deadpan, often hilarious descriptions of actions and reactions from the viewpoint of an omniscient observer, there is also extra materal included aptly titled “The Other Bits”: I therefore sentence you to be burned alive.
Often, reading whle script feels a bit like looking at a blueprint or schematic design, rather than at the thing itself. It’s worth buying for the all the extras, like Baldrick’s family tree.
