The Letter for the King - Storm Clouds Gather television review

One episode in, The Letter for the King feels like you basic knights and destiny story of warring kingdoms and a destiny to be fulfilled. Based on the 1962 Dutch novel De brief voor de Koning by Tonke Dragt, the first episode introduces us to completely unprepared knight initiate Tiuri (Amir Wilson) who only makes it through the trials by his stepfather (David Wenham) bribing his last opponent.
