The Thin Blue Line
The Thin Blue Line is about the everday goings on at Gasforth police station. A small town station led by Inspector Raymond Fowler (Atkinson), who is coping with his failing relationship with his girlfriend of 10 years, Police receptionist Patricia Dawkins. Meanwhile, the ineptness of his own colleagues as well as the equally brainless C.I.D division means that life at Gasforth never goes quite as smoothly as planned. Starting in 1995 (Season 1) and ending in 1996 (Season 2) this 14 episode Ben Elton comedy gets you drawn in and laughing for ages, truly a classic for the video shelf!
Through four series and a few specials, Edmund Blackadder and his greasy sidekick Baldrick conjure up cunning plans as Edmund tries to take advantage of desperate times. These situation tragedies had obvious parallels from the Dark Ages to Elizabethan times, the rule of mad George III, and The Great War.
