Knightfall

History Channel. Knights Templar show.....four episodes in. Pretty good so far. Recommended.

Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.

I like it so far though I wish there were more action and battle scenes & less soap opera type drama. Will continue to watch and recommend.

I like it as well. It will need more intrigue developed by seasons end to carry over into S2, but so far it is decent.

Definitely enjoying it, esp as a Mason. Like Vikings, it's got just enough history to support some great story writing.

Honestly I saw one episode and deleted it from my computer. Almost took a magnet to the hard drive just to make sure it was gone. Didn't enjoy it at all and thought it to be wildly inaccurate, almost to the point of propaganda, from what I know of history. To sum it up, I felt as though one hour of my precious life had been sucked from my body --- like that scene in Princess Bride. The entire series should be a crime and the people that made it trussed up and flensed on a Japanese fishing boat by a gang of smelly fisherman.

It's just a TV show. Hopefully you've never had a wife/GF ask you if they look fat in a dress. lol
