Not-So-Gentle (Re)Viewer: Blackadder II (Season Two)

"The original may be dead... but now his bastard great-great grandson swaggers around Renaissance London with a big head and a small beard."

I believe that Season Two of the Blackadder series is my favorite, in part because I love the Elizabethan era.  In addition, the Shakespeare references abound, with the first episode featuring a girl named Kate who is dressed up like a young man named Bob... very Twelfth Night, if I do say so myself. 

Miranda Richardson plays an absolutely genius Queen Elizabeth I, and Stephen Fry also joins the cast  this season.  Watch it.  Now.  You'll be glad you did.
