The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 3: The Queen’s Knight

The Queens Knight Title Shot

While out on a journey, Queen Guinevere is kidnapped by Sir Mordred and taken back to his castle.  Sir Lancelot is alarmed by her kidnapping and rides to the castle to defend her. When Lancelot is captured by Sir Mordred, King Arthur and Merlin had to ride to the castle where both the Queen and Sir Lancelot are being held. Negotiations for their release may split up the country, so Lancelot does not want this deal to be made. Lancelot must fight his way out of the deal and retain the lands lost.

Personal Synopsis

A story of a champion knight saving his queen. The sword fights are horrible but the story is entertaining enough to sit through. This story has a king looking for more land and finding ways to obtain it, in this case by kidnapping the Queen. The adventures are fun to watch but I can’t help the feeling of being a kid again.
