I watched this show with great anticipation, and was disappointed every week. I certainly expected better from such a good cast and premise. The dialog was cheesy, and the situations and stories were nothing like a medieval family would have ever found themselves in. I always got the impression that someone had just written a regular modern nighttime soap opera a la Dynasty and just dressed it up in 12th-century clothes. It was like one of those bad historical romance novels, where the author hasn't done any research, come to life. The production values were good, with beautiful costumes and sets. They must have had a pretty big budget.
