TV meme, day 22  

Day 22 - Favorite series finale

The first time I saw "Goodbyeee" (the Blackadder Goes Forth finale) I hated it with a vengeance. I actually shouted at the TV that "this is supposed to be a comedy, for god's sake!" Other series of Blackadder had ended in death, but they were still funny. This one was just bleak and depressing.

Over time it has steadily grown on me though, and nowadays it's not only my favourite Blackadder Goes Forth episode, but also one of the best series endings I have ever seen.

It's my favourite Blackadder series and I think the ending is brilliant. It brings a tear to the eye but is somehow not depressing: it must be Art :-)
One year that episode was shown on November 11th, which was quite brave programming.

I remember that!

Of course its resonance is far greater in Britain than over here, but it is a hard-hitting episode, especially upon first watching.

I used to say that Blackadder was the only show I knew that got better and better with each new series, but nowadays I prefer II over III. Blackadder Goes Forth is still the best though.
