The legendary Kingdom of Camarand is ruled by good King Baaldorf and Queen Lattinia. Their daughter, Ariel, is engaged to Prince Erik Greystone, who becomes Camarand's Champion against a neighboring kingdom ruled by evil Prince Dirk Blackpool. Erik was always helped by his servant, Marko, the strongest man in the kingdom and often hindered by his ne'er-do-well playboy brother, Justin. A variety of wizards and witches, both good and evil, also played a part in the conflict.Written by

[Prince Dirk Blackpool and his wizard Vector are forced by a magical storm to take refuge in his sworn enemies' castle]
Prince Dirk Blackpool:
This situation is more intolerable to me than you can imagine. It would help if you could muster up some degree of sophistication.
Prince Erik Greystone:
Dirk, why don't you quit while you're ahead? In the Rains of Death, skin MELTS.
Prince Dirk Blackpool:
Obviously sophistication is beyond you, Erik. I trust the rest of you will make up for him?

Though it was a short run (only 8 episodes) in 1983, this TV show made a lasting impression on me. Why? I can sum it up in two words - Dirk Blackpool. However, the cast, the characters, the crew and the special effects combined to make it a fun, fantasy series with current day ('83) humor. Thankfully, folks on-line still remember it and talk about it.
