I thought today would be a good day to watch some old favorites, and decided to pop on Blackadder II (1986). That’s when I realized that what the world really needed was a Frock Flicks article dedicated to the fantastic character Lord Flashheart, played by Rik Mayall.
Blackadder II (1986)
If we ever put together our top picks for the most historically accurate films and shows ever produced, Blackadder II would for sure be on it. And even though Lord Flashheart is a one-off character in this series, he makes reappearances in later Blackadder offerings. You can’t beat this memorable entrance! WOOF!
Blackadder Goes Forth (1989)
Flashheart reappears as a recurring character by the same name in Blackadder Goes Forth, which is set during World War I. He plays a womanizing flying ace, naturally.
Blackadder Back & Forth (1999)
In the Millennium special, Rik Mayall appears as Robin Hood, dropping Flashheart’s signature line, “WOOF!”
