The first thing that come to my mind to describe this first episode is, sex, violence and sex. Not bad. Just one episode is not enough to tell what the story is. So far, the usual medieval thing, kings, fights, interest marriages, etc. Given the name of the series, and this first episode, it seems that will be the story. A standard medieval story.
But then, there are some interesting things. Not just the pretty girls, the boobs or the sex. But having some kind of tribe that kills people in a way Dexter would like to do, is cool. Now, let us see the next episodes, for a final season review.
