If you are in the same boat, you can buy the season Amazon for $19.99. I’m definitely dropping a 20 bucks, which is usually two trips to Starbucks at work. You can stream HERE ON AMAZON.

Knightfall actor Tom Cullen describes the lengths to which the series goes in order to immerse the viewer in the medieval world.
