Another fantasy piece that will call to the void left by Game of Thrones.  This one’s being touted as GOT for teens.  If there’s anything we have learned it’s never to go into a new show with that expectation like we did with The Witcher, but we have to admire the gonads of this show by killing off Joel Edgerton within two episodes setting up the stage for the show’s relative newcomer and starring lead.

Tiuri played by Amir Wilson doesn’t have the fighting sense his adopted father has but the mystery surrounding his real father is where the real meat of the story will be.

Dutch actor, Gijs Blom plays Prince Viridian who is off fighting battles conquering kingdoms while his figurehead brother enjoys the spoils of power and war.  He’s being set up as a real villain in the first two episodes.  Brooding and mysterious, it seems the information contained in the letter for the king which has ended up in the hands of Tiuri threatens his plan for world domination.

The entire season is just 6 episodes and an easy binge, but its endearing qualities emerge in the group of wouldbe knights who are thrown together in a quest to complete the mission of the fallen black knight.

The group dynamics is similar to the time Arya Stark travelled to the Black Wall with Gendry and Hot Pie offering a coming of age story cushioned in action and comedy.
