12 September 1999 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

As a confirmed fan of "HERCULES" and "XENA" and the other historical fantasy action/adventures that followed in their wake I was looking forward to this series which promised more of the same.How wrong I was.This series would appear to have some British involvement as it does its very best to avoid any physical action sequences at all and the British are very coy about anything which involves one character actually hitting another.So instead of the exciting set piece brawls which permeate the likes of "HERCULES","SINBAD" and "ROBIN HOOD" all we get in this show are long rambling dialogue scenes with characters boring themselves and the audience to death. Also,for some unfathomable reason instead of being set in Switzerland this stuff is set in some "KRULL" type mythical kingdom where the villains carry stupid "STAR WARS" light sabres instead of good old metal swords which seems pointless as they don't use the damn things anyway.In addition,the hero is not the original William Tell but some teenage peasant who happens to have the same name.So therefore there is no son around to have an apple shot off his head in any case.I doubt if this series even has any second unit or action choreographers as there simply is no action,everyone runs away from one another rather than engage in confrontation.This is ridiculous and I cannot see who this series is aimed at.For a really good interpretation of the Tell legend look at the superb 1958 British series which starred Conrad Phillips which even 40 years on is a real adrenalin rush with rugged landscapes and tough fight action.Avoid this new series unless you enjoy lifeless,action-free stilted melodrama.
