The legendary Kingdom of Camarand is ruled by good King Baaldorf and Queen Lattinia. Their daughter, Ariel, is engaged to Prince Erik Greystone, who becomes Camarand's Champion against a neighboring kingdom ruled by evil Prince Dirk Blackpool. Erik was always helped by his servant, Marko, the strongest man in the kingdom and often hindered by his ne'er-do-well playboy brother, Justin. A variety of wizards and witches, both good and evil, also played a part in the conflict. This short-lived black comedy satirized the sword and sorcery genre and pop culture. Written by

This show was killed by the news of the world around it.
I was an avid D&D player at the time this show premiered. I really enjoyed the show, even though it was not a brilliant action or comedic masterpiece.
I believe that one of the things that killed this show was completely unrelated to its writers or actors. This show was constantly being pre-empted for something else. My overwhelming memory of this show is actually turning on the TV and seeing President Reagan.
The show was running during the same period that a) Korean Air Flight KAL-007 was shot down when it entered Soviet airspace, b) US Marine barracks in Beirut destroyed by suicide bomber, c) United States invades Grenada, d) U.S Embassy is bombed in Beirut.
I would love to see the few episodes they filmed come out on DVD. This show was a riot!
