KNIGHTFALL; Review

I was a little late with KNIGHTFALL, a show produced for the History Channel. The first episode aired in December, 2017, and I started purchasing episodes on Google Play in 2019, but I must say, I was hooked thereafter.

I’m not going to lie, this show has mixed reviews with the most critical pointing out certain historical inaccuracies. Others talked about quality; the show looked cheap; a low budget knockoff of something much better.

For me personally, KNIGHTFALL is amazing, and I say “is” because I’m still purchasing episodes from season 2. Unfortunately, Season 2 is the end. The final episode aired in May, 2019, and the History Channel announced their cancellation of Season 3 in May, 2020.

It’s not the newest show, but it’s still fairly new. People can argue about specifics, but I think this show captured all the important elements from a time I absolutely love. I love the Medieval/Victorian Era and everything that comes with it. Kings and Queens, the Templars, war, the struggle for territory in Europe, the Holy Grail, King Arthur, the power and influence of the church and Pope; KNIGHTFALL has it all, comingled with the shows natural plot, which by the way, is what roped me in. 👍
