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>

User Reviews

A wonderful modern-day fantasy with very watchable stories!
8 April 2002 | by (TEMPLE CITY, CA) – See all my reviews

I loved "The Quest", with its fantastical story line about 4 Americans who must prove their worthiness to inherit a kingdom. The best part was watching the chemistry between Karen Austin and Perry King, and the acceptance of teamwork with Ray Vitte and Noah Beery, Jr. The sweep and believability of John Rhys-Davies and the by-play with the King was also enjoyable to watch. I was very sorry to see it cancelled. I hope someday TV Land or Nick at Nite could put it on just so viewers could see just how magical and entertaining it was next to some of todays dreck!
