Trivia

According to executive producer Gil Grant, the series was intended to be set about 1350 during the middle of Edward the Third's reign. Since the series wasn't intended to be completely accurate and the production designer was concerned with criticism over anachronisms creeping into the set design, the producers opted to use a generic medieval time period instead.

Before it's time...
22 July 2011 | by (FL, USA) – See all my reviews

This came out while I was in college. I remember recognizing the lead characters from the movie Excalibur. I recall it being well acted with believable and compelling characters. The scenery seemed authentic. And the stories revolved around family life and values but was set during the time of knights and kings

I watched it faithfully and then it just up and disappeared. Years later I recall seeing several or maybe a gazillion TV shows based around the same time period with similar, if not slightly more unbelievable and fantastic, myths. It's very refreshing to be reminded that as parents, and humans in general, though technologies have changed, our base feelings of love and compassion as well as the various stages and angst of emotional growth remains the same.

I very much wish they'd replay these, if not revive them. :)
