I watched the Roman soldier one and have the knights waiting on TiVo
for me to find some time.  Looks to be a very interesting little
series, very similar to "Conquest" on the History Channel (which is
hosted by the very cool Peter Woodward).  I think Conquest did one
on Hollywood fighting a while back, showing the difference between
the big screen and reality, which parallels how games work, i.e. you
want something entertaining, not something realistic.

Both are good series if you have the time (and the channels) to
watch them.
