Storyline

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.

Quotes

[Prince Dirk Blackpool and his wizard Vector are forced by a magical storm to take refuge in his sworn enemies' castle.]
Prince Dirk Blackpool: This situation is more intolerable to me than you can imagine. It would help if you could muster up some degree of sophistication.
Prince Erik Greystone: Dirk, why don't you quit while you're ahead? In the Rains of Death, skin MELTS.
Prince Dirk Blackpool: Obviously sophistication is beyond you, Erik. I trust the rest of you will make up for him?

Before its time?
18 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Oh, how I miss "Wizards and Warriors." Why didn't this show last more than one season? Perhaps the audience for it wasn't "there" yet. I was. This show made me a huge Julia Duffy fan. And I'd always loved Clive Revill. Anyway, about the show... The basic premise of the show - Prince Dirk Blackpool wants to rule the kingdom (of course) and holds the evil wizard "Vector" to his bidding by stealing the wizard's power-crystal with the help of the witch Bethel. Meanwhile Princess Ariel loves the hero, Prince Greystone, but is too self involved to get him. She's pretty much what made the show so great and memorable and certainly I remember it at all. I actually remember some of the episodes pretty well, as I had taped them to watch later, and saved them for a long time (they are, alas, long gone now. But as the previous reviewer stated, if anyone has them...). I remember the "over the top" heroism of Jeff Conaway's character. I remember mostly Ms. Duffy's Princess Ariel. The great lines she had. When the evil Blackpool went to kiss her hand and he scolded "don't get it wet." And her physical comedy (she's a master and underrated "pratfaller.") - especially with that conical hat she had to wear. I guess the only real criticism I might have for the show was that it was perhaps a little uneven (hard for me to explain, but even if you loved the show you might know what I mean). But if you're reading this, you probably don't care about whatever "uneven" may mean - you remember, and wish, as I do, for the "fun" of it again. Why isn't this on video/DVD? Would it work today, when it didn't find it's audience back when it first aired? I'd love to know - wouldn't you?
