The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 4: The Outcast

The Outcast Title Shot

Sir Lancelot has asked King Arthur to take in a young boy to be taught how to be a knight. Since this boy is not of noble blood the other knights and knights in training seek out to sabotage the kids training.  During the boys training, a knight and a student attempt to set up the boy into being kicked out of the school. Some people in the castle believe the boy is not guilty of the charge, hoping that Sir Lancelot would come back to help him out of trouble. The boy finds out that a knight is stealing from the castle eventually gets him caught by the castles soldiers.

Personal Synopsis

This is the strongest episode yet featuring Patrick Mc’Goohan as a dodgy knight.  The story feel bigger than the previous episodes. I’m happy to see a bit less of Sir Lancelot saving the day and allowing the rest of the cast to perform.
