Personal Synopsis

An episode in Black & White which is odd since the last few episodes were in colour. Sir Kay is used as the comic relief as Sir Lancelot fight another attempt to take a kingdom by marriage. It is by far the most comical episode of the series, with fun being made of Sir Kay and his exaggerated stories of victories.
