Storyline

The sovereign state of Glendorra has a problem. It seems that through an old agreement with France, unless there's a monarch, the country would revert to France. And the king has no heirs. So, they found four Americans who are descendants of one of the former rulers. So they are sent out on a "Quest" to show if they have the qualities necessary to be a ruler. It won't be easy cause they go forth with no idea what to do, and their information is given to them through poems which they find hard to transcribe. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

What good TV should have been
27 May 2016 | by sbm-40441See all my reviews

The king of fictional nation Glendora "of advanced years and unlikely to produce an heir", has to find a successor or his kingdom will be absorbed into France, according to a medieval treaty. So, he searches the world, and finds four people who have royal blood, an adventurer, a retired ex-cop, a con-man, and.. well, a woman. He then devises a competition where they "race" to a place of his choosing, where it's more about how you run rather than how fast.

Character development was great, writing was great both from a comedic and an action standpoint. (My favorite was the chameleon-like con man who at one point sells the Brooklyn Bridge - literally). A greatly entertaining and well-done show with a great soundtrack, so of course ABC cancelled it after five episodes.
