Read from November 21 to December 01, 2010 — I own a copy, read count: 1

It is exactly what it says it is, so long as one carefully notes the dates in the title: this volume contains the full scripts, with asides and stage directions, for all four seasons of the Blackadder television series, along with most of the cast credits, and some supplemental material of similar humour, including a couple pages of connective introduction at the start of each season. It does not, however, contain any material from the several subsequent sequels, such as the specials Blackadder: The Cavalier Years or the Blackadder Christmas Special. For that, and the comparative dearth of pictures given that this was a TV show, I deduct one star. Otherwise, the show is damn near as funny in print as on the screen, especially when one has seen most of the episodes as many times as I have. Now I just need the DVD box set!
