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
This short-lived series was superb -- and it had an equally short and wonderful theme song. Adventure, human interaction, royalty, a great prize -- what else could you want in a weekly TV series?
For action and actual story line, it's far superior to the drivel that wastes electricity these days.
(For those who don't understand the concept, let me explain: Some TV series used to have actual stories. Many of the stories were somewhat ... well ... unbelievable ... such as this one, but even so they beat the current slop of "reality shows" which are slightly less interesting than watching any random group of drunks at a bus stop.)
I would love to see this series on DVD -- or even the theme song on CD!
