Finished this short season of 5 episodes. I truly hope this gets renewed. It is superb. Production values are excellent, the main battle scene in episode 4 is up there with the best.
The series depicts kingship in 11th century Spain in a believable light, the power of the Church, the alliances with the Moorish kingdoms, the role of gender. This is brilliant TV and it is most definitely not the El Cid of Charlton Heston.
And watch with the subtitles not the dubbed version. It is a far richer experience
