I thought they made up this ridiculous franchise for the movie Cable Guy
It is very real. It's in Texas, I believe.
There's a bunch. There's one in Toronto, some friends of mine worked at it.
There's one outside Atlanta, too.

Suddenly we're all too cool to find this funny.
I can explain this episode, due to my knowing way too much about Walker, Texas Ranger.
A couple of Walker's people go undercover at a Medieval Times joint because they believe some of the performers are part of a burglary crew that's been pulling off major heists.
There, surely context has destroyed the ridiculousness of the clip.
Or not. I mean, the whole series was pretty damn ridiculous.

Regardless of the Chuck Norris joke phenomenon that instantly blackballs any humorist attempting comedy these days (and rightly so), I still get a kick out of how terrible the match-cut editing and stunt double use are on any of Mr. Norris' projects.
I'm pretty sure the stand-in didn't even have a beard in that last shot of "Walker" getting up.

Man, I'd actually go to Medieval Times if during the knight fighting bits they had a thing where random cowboys would ride in and start beating people up.
Also: I like how it cuts back to the King and he is all "Oh my. This is a fascinating development..." instead of being all "What the shit, that drunk redneck just tackled Tommy! SECURITY!"
I forget what a land of mystical wonderment Texas is.
And people talk shit about Georgia...
I think his point is that Georgia sucks.

The message here is that Texan culture can kick ass harder than those European pansies in the middle ages. I'm sure there's also a clip out there of Chuck Norris beating the hell out of Asian "karate" guys.

unfortunately, this had nothing to do with time travel
also..someone mention a "Civil War Times" funtertainment restaurant? really? wow...just, wow

Now I remember the Civil War thing. It was Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede.
"Dixie Stampede transports you back to the Civil War as the North and South battle it out in a series of horse-riding competitions while enjoying a delicious four-course meal. A whole rotisserie chicken, creamy vegetable soup, buttered corn on the cob and an herb-based potato will keep you filled as you cheer your side to victory. Throughout the performance, you'll experience daring horse-riding tricks, comedy, ostriches and much more! "
What the fuck more could you ask for? War is delicious. Also, ostriches.
Dixie Stampede is still in business, with three great locations to serve you - Myrtle Beach SC, Pigeon Forge TN, and Branson MO.
Now they just need one in north Florida.

I went to the Medieval Times in NJ for my 26th birthday. We are talking D&D club levels of shame.
