I know it’s true that there is no such thing as a truly original story. And I know the classic tropes are classics for a reason; still, it would be nice if people could try and inject a little originality into their characters.
Knights of Bloodsteel was a 2 part Syfy event, lasting somewhere between 3-4 hours long. The story itself wasn’t bad, but every single character was a classic trope, and a badly written one at that. (Nor was the acting great.) But really, did the loner swordsman who was “not from these lands” really need a Scottish accent?
