So I was feeling a bit nostalgic. I watched a show sometime during the mid-90s, but I can't remember the name for the life of me. I will try to give some very fuzzy details:

  1. I believe there was time travel involved where the protagonist would travel back in time (maybe a King Arthur setting?) with the assistance of a sword.
  2. I think "sword" was in the title, but I could be completely off on this.
  3. The sword was central to the plot.
  4. I watched this show in the 90s on the 2nd Channel of Amman, Jordan. It would come on late night around 11PM on Thursday nights.
  5. The protagonist was white, mid-40s, weak jaw, sort of flat face.
  6. It was live action, and intended for adults, although there was no sex or excessive violence that I remember.

I have searched quite a bit with no luck. I may be wrong about certain aspects, but this is the best I could do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's driving me crazy!


The Name of the show is: "The Wanderer".

Shy multi-millionaire businessman Adam ("the Wanderer" of the show's title) and his wicked twin brother Zachary (both played by Bryan Brown) are two former knights from the late Tenth Century, both of whom have been born again in the late Twentieth Century. Zachary is after a complicated revenge on Adam, who killed him in the year A.D. 1000, but much more is at stake than mere vengeance. As the turn of the Third Millennium approaches, people grow more superstitious, and Zachary plans to use this for his own purpose. He needs his brother dead and seen by witnesses so he can pose as Adam resurrected.

    It would be really helpful if you could describe what about the show matches up with the OP's recalled details.

    @MrLister Ah, yes. It'd still be helpful though. Especially since the comments indicate that the memories were slightly off regarding the sword at the very least.
