i would be so gleeful if u guys (ALSO EVERYONE ELSE WHO FOLLOWS ME) told me your favorite characters so i can make fun of you when i get to them. or send me an anon if u don’t want me to know and i can make fun of you through the blindfold.
eg, my gf’s favorite character is vriska, the one who i hear was such a discourse bomb that at one point ppl weren’t allowed to mention her on the main forums outside of her own specially quarantined thread????????

I was watching a show on dvd and the last season is not on netflix, so I am revisiting.
some people latched on to british imports like monty python, doctor who, or fawlty towers, but what was on when I was watching was Black Adder.
This is the show that the Mr Bean dude made before Mister Bean.
It takes place in 4 centuries, the first show in the 1480s, as an alt history of Richard the 4ths bastard son; the second in queen elizebeth I’s reign, the third in regency, and the fourth in the trenches of world war I.
The first black adder is a coward and a dolt, but his descendants are shrewd, cunning, ironic, cowardly, and all ultimately doomed. As the character get’s poorer, his wit seems to grow until he achieves a kind of heroic nihilism surviving among more powerful idiots in the trenches of world war 1.
