Picks and Pans Review: Covington Cross
This period drama concerns an English lord (Excalibur's Nigel Terry) raising three sons (Glenn Quinn, Tim Killick and Jonathan Firth) and a willful daughter (Ione Skye) in his 14th-century castle.
At least the pilot offered the frisson of mixing medieval settings with modern attitudes about sex and feminism. Subsequent episodes have abandoned that ambition, leaving only rambling exposition and tepid dialogue punctuated dull scenes of derring-do.
Shot in England, this anglicized Bonanza is handsome to look at but boring to watch.
