The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 6: Sir Bliant

Sir Bliant Title Shot

Two Lords Sir Bliant and Sir Rolf have been fighting for years, but after King Arthur arranged a truce between the two lords, Sir Bliant’s sons still wreck havoc. All of Sir Rolf’s daughters are kidnapped by Sir Bliant’s sons. Sir Bliant is useless due to his old age so his sons have taken control of the castle. Sir Bliant asks for assistance.  Sir Lancelot devises a plan to go in disguise as Sir Bliant and teach his sons a lesson.

Personal Synopsis

Another fun episode where the sons of an old lord have taken control over their castle. The premise is ripe for family turmoil when the sons look for more power and the Lord seeks to regain some power and credibility.  A decent watch where William Russell plays two roles in the show.
