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. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

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?

Fantastic, under appreciated Medieval spoof that went off the air far too soon.
18 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I loved this series, and I too was quite young when it was on. I remember it though as hilarious, satirizing a period I've always adored. I really think it was one of Julia Duffy's finest hours as well. The part of the bratty princess was so perfectly suited to her style, and was a real precursor for any work she did later on Newhart or Designing Women. Conway was also really good in this show, and I've always thought it was too bad he never got more work after Taxi and Grease. But without question, my favorite in the series was Dirk Blackpool, who we've almost never seen since. Whatta man! :)

If anyone knows where the tapes can be found, please email me!
