Blackadder Goes Forth, Episode 2 - Corporal Punishment
After having trouble with the trenches' telephone system, Blackadder is facing a court-martial for disobeying orders; and far more seriously, shooting and eating Melchett's prized pet pigeon, Speckled Jim. Is there any hope for the Captain, or does a firing squad and certain death await?
In 13 years of service to King and Country, Edmund has faced danger: in Nepal tackling an over-spiced curry; in Mombassa, confronting 200,000 grass-skirted men. But now he is truly in a pickle.
