"Sophisticated theologians". Hilarious. Good one, Malcolm.

If you read the scripture, that's the only bit likely to be left on earth.
But how likely is it that the Rabbi who performed the bris would keep it and label it sufficiently for crusaders to find it 1100 years later.

Even he says it didn't find its feet until series two. I suppose this is why Ben Elton is held such high regard still, but I maintain Blackadder and Young Ones alone (neither the sole work of himself alone don't forget) can make up for everything else and make him untouchable.

I was watching the Blackadder nomination for Britain's Best Sit-Com recently, where Curtis himself while talking about Fourth and the inital controversy surrounding it, that he'd love to have been able to have a few explosions and stuff in his films. It seems even he doesn't enjoy them that much.

In which case, son't make them you wastefull arse - neither do we!!! :evil:
