The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 26: Knights Choice

A knight is sadly killed and a vacancy exist in the round table. A competition for the seat is created and the news had hit all the nearby castles.  A poor young knight hopeful applies and shows his skills right away. Morgana brings her son, Rupert, to apply as well but with her own interests involved. There is strife between Balin and Rupert,so Balin is sent away for not being qualified. Sir Lancelot sponsors Balin to give him a decent try. The competition is tough and its getting hard to see whom is worthy for the seat in the round table. There must be a fight to the finish.

Personal Synopsis

Knights Choice is a fun show with the young knights to be in a competition for a spot on the table in Camelot. The knights event is fun to watch even if the sets were far too small. I like the mini adventure of swordplay and would watch this episode again.
