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

A memorable and underappreciated little TV classic
I really enjoyed this show and I wish I remembered more about it, but the 17 intervening years, its short run, and the fact that I was just a youngun when it was on conspire so that I remember very few details.
I do remember how well written and acted the deliciously evil Dirk Blackpool was. I don't remember if this was a catch-phrase or if he only said it once, but one of his threats that stayed with me was "[Stop that] or I'll chain you to the floor and walk all over you in my spiked boots." Another tidbit is that baseball player Pete Rose always reminded me of Blackpool, appearance-wise.
I believe the line above was said to Blackpool's comedically bumbling assistant Marko. I've seen actor Walter Olkewicz in a few things and this is the role I remember him for.
I imagine this show must be a bit of a holy grail for tape-traders. If anyone has it, let me know. :-)
