I purchased this disc because I did not have “Blackadder Back and Forth”. It also includes the “Cavalier Years” and “Blackadder’s Christmas Carol”. The images are somewhat cleaned up from the previous DVD release but not enough to repurchase it if you already own the 2001 issues. My biggest problem is with “Christmas Carol”. It’s edited! The line where Baldrick talks about using the Christmas Jesus dog for the Easter play is missing! It was uncut on the previous release. I have to imagine that it’s also missing from the new remastered box set. Fortunately I already have it on the Blackadder III disc or I would be very upset. It may be my imagination but it also looks like the widescreen picture on ‘Back and Forth’ has been slightly squeezed from 1.66 to 1.78. So, 5 stars for the for the shows themselves but docked to 3 stars for the questionable editing choices.
