Aficionados of chain mail, snuff and codpieces rejoice! The Santa Fe Public Library has acquired the Black Adder series on video and DVD. Admirers of all things Middle Aged, Elizabethan and Mad King George - including his son, the Prince of Wales;current and past viewers of Jeeves and Wooster; and House or Mr. Bean, PREPARE YOURSELVES! Before computers, cruise missiles and (gasp!)napkins, our ancestors used the rack, axes and bad food to gain access to information. Thank heavens we are more sophisticated now.
For those who are not fully aware of this little gem, forsooth, get ye to Google or a BBC website! This BBC series includes venerable actors Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Miranda Richardson and Tony Robinson as Edmund’s execrable(stinky) sidekick, Baldrick.
Thrill to the sounds of hooves and heels clopping on cobblestones and the sweet lilt of the minstrel’s theme song. Create your own cunning plan to reserve your copy of Black Adder ere long.
