Re: RDM to Make "A Knight''s Tale" into a television show!!

Wow. I've always classed A Knight's Tale along with The Core as type specimens of what's wrong with professionalism in screenwriting. These movies slavishly followed every rule in the latest hack's handbook of commercial writing.

In any event, whatever the people touting this imagine, being a continuing series will run it up against the problem that continuting anachronism will lose what precious little humor they hand and turn into just plain stupid. There was never enough satire in it to matter. I suppose there might be an certain kind of audience in the executive suites for a show that sanitizes class society, instead of ignoring or falsifying it.
