"We discovered the Darkest Knight accidentally at a yard sale. I admit- at $1.00 I feel we overpaid, but it has been a true joy to laugh at along with my daughter. The special effects are painful and truly bring a new definition to 'special' effects. I have seen better CGI monsters in free video games.
There is far too much to lampoon in a short review. Strike in any direction- you can't help but hit a worthy target. The stories are full of stereotypes, and despite the rich plot potential of medieval England in the time of Richard the Lionhearted and Ivanhoe, the writing seems to have been choreographed to limit the need for anything beyond the three or four reused sets and CGI castles.
The best contribution to this series by far is the rich cover art for each of the DVDs that make up the series. Majestic castlescapes with burning orange color and menacing dragons circling the parapets or gnashing teeth in beastial fury- despite the complete lack of a single dragon in any of the first three DVDs (outside of the opening credits, where Ivanhoe inexplicably battles dragons that appear nowhere else).
My daughter bought me the second and third as a Fathers Day gift. We had a grand old time playing Mystery Science Theater on the living room couch. Great entertainment, if only by pure accident.
My daughter wants me to add that my wife walked into the living room as we were screening the movies to find out what comedy we had in the DVD player that had us laughing so hard. We had a hard time explaining that it wasn't a comedy... intentionally."
