The Black Adder a.k.a. Blackadder (Richard Curtis, Rowan Atkinson, Ben Elton)
The story focuses on Richard IV's younger son Prince Edmund, a weeping coward who calls himself the "Black Adder". Assisted by his sloppy servant Baldrick and the moronic Lord Percy, Edmund plots his rise to greatness.
Later on, Blackadder becomes Prince Edmund's family name.
Starring: Rowan Atkinson, Elspet Gray, Tim McInnerny, Brian Blessed, Tony Robinson
Why the love for this TV Series: Although it was created in the early 80's, this sitcom is still pretty funny nowadays, being one of the most intelligent and hilarious shows ever created!
It is the best work done by Rowan Atkinson and what a History lesson!
I especially love the conversations between Blackadder and Baldrick!
Note: In the following video, Prince Edmund is trying to teach Baldrick to count beans when they are disturbed by a weird-looking Lord Percy:
