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.

Where can I get season 1 on DVD?
14 May 2007 | by oharoonSee all my reviews

Does anyone know where I can get this series on DVD? I had taped the this show on VHS years ago, and I was so disappointed when it went off the air. It was such a great funny show. Its nice to know other people remember it and appreciate it. I kind of thought I was the only one to remember this show, at least I know there is at least 8 of us out there. Its strange when really great shows like this go completely unnoticed and can get axed so quick. I really hope I can find someone to buy this show from.

Its kind of like Young Indiana Jones Chronicles that was so good but completely unappreciated by the masses. I really question the taste of Nielsen family homes.
