Oh hey look at that, another person who's heard of Lindybeige.  I wish he did more vids listing inaccuracies and nonsense in movies and TV shows set in medieval/ancient times.  Still waiting for part 2 of this one:

That doesn't sound like a good check against misinformation. Does it do an extra investigative effort to challenge "the side" that is not well-supported or supported at all?
