A knight comes from far away to join King Arthurs round table. He is a very skilled knight and is gaining jealous enemies within the castle. Sir Gawaine believes Lancelot killed his brother and is seeking satisfaction, so duel has been setup. The hard fought duel leaves one victor with a show of mercy. The round table awaits Lancelot.
A simple start to a fun and adventurous TV series. As the show begins it is obvious whom this show was geared for. Any young boy would love to watch the adventures of a brave knight carrying out the will of the good King Arthur. This episode tells the story of how Lancelot became a knight of the round table. This simple show does remind me of the same production style as the Adventures of Robin Hood.
