To be fair, I was eager to watch that but after reading the reviews I
decided I'd wait until I could catch it on for free or just about... :( but
then I haven't managed.
It really needs the action scenes: the tourneys, the battles,... which I
understand this lacks completely. It's a part action, romance and comedy
which makes it balanced, and also establishes Tirant as a proper hero.
