I recognise the effort of putting all of this together in a country like Spain, where budgets are far more limited than in the US or UK, for example. This said, there's little more that would attract me to spend time in front of my tely. Dialogs, attitudes (male & female, but specially this last one), and of course details in weaponry, costumes and set in general, are in a clashing anachronism with what they intend to represent. The Spanish language used here corresponds more with 21st century urban slang than something remotely close to the wonderfully rich "Siglo de Oro"-Golden century-; same things could be said to the characters, where, except for their garments, one can find dynamic 2010 women, and very open-minded 16th Century Spanish men.
Unfortunately, Hispania - A brand new historic series, taking place at the time of the Roman Empire-, follows the same trail.
