Trivia

According to Executive Producer Gil Grant, the series was intended to be set about 1350, during the middle of Edward the Third's reign. Since the series wasn't intended to be completely accurate, and the Production Designer was concerned with criticism over anachronisms creeping into the set design, the producers opted to use a generic medieval time period instead.

What a great show!
12 September 2003 | by EventHorizon333See all my reviews

I wasn't lucky enough to have watched this show during it's first run, but I was lucky enough to have been given the entire series from someone, even the ones unaired in the US-

I watched all of them in a single day. I couldn't stop- the characters are great, the story lines are fun, they didn't take themselves too seriously, it's loads of fun- but then they did have serious moments as well. I've heard complants about that, but you know- I felt it worked.

They had some plot points dangling, which people also hadn't liked at the time, but it was apparent to me that they were planning on some great plot lines that was meant for the second season that never came.

It was a short lived show that deserved much more than it got.
