My mother bought one of the first “big” televisions back in the 50’s. By “big,” I mean 21″ black and white.
So, I grew up with Ozzie and Harriet, Gunsmoke, and Howdy Doody. I’ve logged millions of hours turning my eyes into red, glazed globs.
As the show’s website explains, “The Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings has joined forces with the creators and producers of The Amazing Race to conjure a land of magic and malevolence, where mythical creatures lurk in the woods. For 12 lucky souls, a fantastic world will come alive in a unique competition series where players will engage in epic challenges.”
The series was filmed on location in and around a castle in Austria. The narration of the opening episode explains, “Driven by their imaginations and their hero’s hearts, our 12 Paladins traveled great distances and deep underground to the place that separates their reality from Everealm. Once the Paladins were gathered, they were led down through a dark cavern and down to a mystical river where they met the Fates who summoned them.They have been summoned to save Everealm, the land on the other side of the cave.”
If you have (sadly) missed the show, you are fortunate, because now you can “binge watch” all episodes aired so far/ Just click the photo, and away you go!
