About This Episode

Having already put his caffeinated spin on Sherlock Holmes and the mismatched secret agents of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., director Guy Ritchie adds some cockney attitude and time-jumping comic flair to the oft-told legend of King Arthur.

Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky sit down to explain why King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is only a gas when it’s behaving like a Ritchie crime caper.
