So I have finally seen the first season of “Knightfall”. Initally I didn´t like the first look of it despite the fact that the storyline and setting is totally up my alley. But, I gave it a second chance. “Knightfall” is a historical fiction drama television series created by Don Handfield and Richard Rayner for the History channel. The series recounts the success, fall, persecution, and suppression of the Knights Templar, as orchestrated by King Philip IV of France on October 13, 1307. The series focuses on the fictional Templar leader Landry du Lauzon, a brave warrior discouraged by the Templars’ failures in the Holy Land who is reinvigorated by news that the Holy Grail has resurfaced.

I think it´s a nice production, solid story and it has plenty of things to like. But, my biggest issue with this series is that the acting is way too wobbly during the whole first season. It´s just not top notch which I think is a shame. However, I will see the second season as well.
