Blackadder Series 2
The second series of Blackadder really defined the character and the show. Blackadder is depicted as a Machiavellian character, both suave and cunning, devious and manipulative. Baldrick on the other hand, becomes the laughable sidekick, and the butt of many of the show’s jokes.
Blackadder Series 1 is very different from the others. This series was written by Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis, and was first broadcast way back in 1983. The main difference between this and the other series, is that the character of Blackadder is very different.
In Blackadder Series 1, Blackadder is depicted more as a snivelling and weak buffoon, as opposed to the more selfish, manipulative and conniving character he became in the later series. Baldrick on the other hand, is more intelligent and genuinely cunning. In a way, it is like their roles are reversed.
