    Just wondering if anybody else is watching this show on FX. Season 1 just ended and I'm hooked. Kind of found it by accident one night flipping channels.

    It takes place during the Middle Ages and is the story of a man named Wilkin who belongs to a band of rebels and he assumes the identity of a village executioner after the real one is killed to save his own life. I don't want to give anymore away. Almost all the cast are unknowns but it does star a much older Katy Segal from Married with Children.
  2. It's already cancelled.

    Kurt Sutter canceled it himself when it didn't gain traction like his eponymous SOA did. Not enough people watching, and he was stretched too thin, so he took his axe, swung it like a man, and the rest is history. I rather liked it, as well. For something similar, try DaVinci's Demons...same kind of Machiavellian plots and twists, but takes place in Italy- with English accents, no less!

    Davincis demons was also cancelled this year. I watched the first two seasons, have yet to catch the third.

    I watched the pilot of TBE but couldn't get into it. Katey Segal sounded like she was doing a bad count chocula accent. No one else had an accent, made it especially jarring.
