I could both listen and read in the original language on subtitle track 23. This is a very well presented drama, nicely costumed and with some competent acting performances - well worth a second watch just to remember how to speak all those Vos words, for which modern Latins substitute almost exclusively 'Usted'.
El Cid, as well as the battles focuses on the relationships between the knights and their monarchs, particularly the intrigues at court, in which women also have a their role. The drama's aims were probably a little too mighty for the amount of time and money they had at their disposal , but compared to 'Minions of Midas' or '30 Monedas' this one, in terms of production and entertainment value is probably the best TV drama of the three. The conclusion of Episode 5 indicates there is more to come. Looking forward to that.
