Sir Gadabout: the rest of it?
Will: Don't you mean the "Orient", Sir?
Sir Gadabout: I know what I mean, William. Today, we are going to learn about the art of "Zen", specifically, how one is able to alter their "environment" so that it reflects a mind uncluttered by extraneous thought!

Rolicking good and v.funny
4 October 2005 | by inkNpaperSee all my reviews

I caught the Gadabout programme when I was a student in England and was channel surfing. Even though it's a children's programme, it really is very well done and choke full of jokes that will make you wipe tears from your eyes after you've recovered from laughing. I liked all the characters from the king, Will, Elenora to the knights and their funny antics, their dilemmas, the round table etc.

Am seriously considering getting the whole series if possible. Pity I didn't get to see more, but even now, I will chuckle when remembering at funny scenes in the programme and people around will get startled. And when a programme can make you do that, you know it's good; because you only remember the good stuff you've watched on TV.
