Knightfall: Season 1 Reviews

December 7, 2017
This is a lumpy, awkwardly paced, derivative show that doesn't boast much in the way of impressive visuals or engaging characters.

The cast is good, the fight scenes prolific, the overall lifting not heavy. Grailies among you could do worse.

This knowledge presented "Knightfall" a significant opportunity to enthrall the audience in addition to empowering it with knowledge. A demanding quest, for certain, and one it fails to fulfill.
December 6, 2017
A handsomely produced series that has the flavor of a British tea-time show, only infused with a lot more violence and gore, as well as soapy elements that feel tired practically from the get-go.

The series takes a fascinating historical moment and uses it as an excuse to channel a half-dozen fictionalized histories and renders something specific relatively generic.
December 5, 2017
Knightfall is an attempt to replicate Michael Hirst's enduringly successful blend of historical drama and spectacle, but Don Handfield and Richard Rayner have produced something that feels in almost every way second-hand.
