The Bastard Executioner (FX) – Starts 15th September – Cancelled
Slow moving medieval tedium where a former knight has retired into the farming industry only for his town of Welshmen of varying nationalities to stage a small rebellion against the English overlords. This backfires massively and the town is torched and everyone is massacred, including his missus.
This leads to the Welsh facing off against the local Barons army, and winning easily with much sword to head action. After the victory a local mystic helps disguise the fella as an executioner who was on the opposing side so he can go undercover and get revenge.
An opening episode of almost endless exposition.
