i did not grow up in the 50s but i do like the old adventure shows, this one is pretty good. it is a typical predictable, good guy always wins but has some good plots and i like that merlin the magicians magic the way it happens could actually happen. if you like the old adventure series i would highly recomend this one. the buccaners and the adventures of robin hood are also excellent!

William Russell did a wonderful job. I love the stories and it is great fun to watch. However, it would be more enjoyable to watch if all the episodes are in colour and subtitles added. I think there will be more varieties to storyline if there were some episodes mentioning other knights in round table.

The Definitive U.S. Release of the "Sir Lancelot" Television Series Sept. 9 2008
By Robert Huggins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" (NBC, 1956-57) was one of several costume adventure series produced in England that followed the very successful release of "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (CBS, 1955-58) a year earlier on CBS. Produced by Sapphire Films, the company that produced "Robin Hood" and "The Buccaneers" (CBS, 1956-57), "Sir Lancelot" brought the legend of King Arthur and Camelot to the small screen. Although it only lasted a single season, "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" is historically important in the annals of television history as it was the first British television series with multiple episodes produced in color.

"The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" was issued on DVD in its entirety in England by a company called Network, but previous U.S. DVD releases have been limited to a few selected episodes on discs such as The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Volume 1 and The Adventures of Sir Lancelot, Vol. 1. With the release of this 3-DVD, 30-episode set from Timeless Media, those previous releases are no longer necessary for anyone collecting episodes from the show; this release has it all. The series' entire run of 30 episodes is included in this set and the audio/visual quality, while far from perfect, represents a major improvement over all previous U.S. DVD releases of the series. Most importantly, 12 of the 14 color episodes that were produced have survived the ravages of time and are included in this set. Some of the color episodes are faded and a few are quite vivid, but the color episodes were, apparently, only broadcast during the 1956-57 season and subsequent airings of the series were broadcast in black & white. So it's a revelation to see the color schemes employed for this show after more than half a century.

William Russell is well cast in the starring role as the gallant knight, and other cast regulars included Ronald Leigh-Hunt as King Arthur (Bruce Seton portrays Arthur for the first three episodes), Jane Hylton as Queen Guinevere, Cyril Smith as Merlin and Robert Scroggins as Squire Brian. British character actors like Nigel Green and Derren "Derry" Nesbitt are featured as different characters in numerous episodes, and Patrick McGoohan makes one of his earliest television appearances as a villainous knight in one of the series' early episodes titled "The Outcast."

This release is a must for anyone who enjoys the British costume adventure shows of the mid to late 1950s and early 1960s. Timeless Media has also released episode compilations of The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Buccaneers and William Tell. All of these series are enjoyable and highly recommended.

My rating for "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" is closer to **** & 1/2 due to some comparatively minor film flaws here and there as well as some of the faded color issues previously mentioned, but it's really not much of a deterrent to anyone's enjoyment of this series.

The Adventures of Squire Brian June 29 2009
By Ursus Somnolicus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Before you buy this, please understand what you're getting. Don't expect any continuity with previous Arthurian tales. Try to ignore the charaters' names and let the stories speak for themselves.

As to those stories, it's clear that this series was aimed at a young audience. In short order Lancelot 'adopts' young Brian to serve as his squire, and Brian proceeds to steal the show. Each week will dish up another problem for Lancelot to solve, and Brian's help will be essential.

Given this youthful focus, and the mores of the time, it's no surprise that this series delivers peril without tragedy, and combat without bloodshed. Humorous moments are plentiful, and any flirtation between Lancelot and Guinevere is strictly courteous (in the original sense of the word).

Within these boundaries the series provides a lot of good, clean fun. The characters are quite engaging. I'm especially fond of Merlin, who's more showman than sage. Lance is on to him, but they quickly come to an understanding.

Sir Lancelot comes to the small screen May 21 2007
By Robert Huggins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The latter half of the 1950s and early 1960s saw numerous historical costume adventure series produced in England for export to the United States. In the wake of the very successful "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (CBS, 1955-58), the same production company, Sapphire Films, began production on two new series for the 1956-57 television season, The Buccaneers: The Complete Series for CBS and "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" for NBC. "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" starred William Russell (later of "Dr. Who" fame) and was similar in structure to the "Robin Hood" series in that both shows' heroes attempted to right the wrongs of their respective times. The two shows, along with "The Buccaneers" shared many of the same writers, directors and production crews. While these shows were originally made for a juvenile audience, they can be easily enjoyed by adults thanks to good writing and acting. In fact, many of the scripts came from black-listed Hollywood writers using aliases, and viewers will see numerous social justice themes throughout these series. Although a highly entertaining show, "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" only lasted a single season, the victim of poor ratings against "Make Room for Daddy" on ABC and "The Burns & Allen Show" on CBS.

"The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" has had an official release of the entire series in England, but there has never been an official release of the series in the U.S. Instead, there have been several releases of episodes that have, presumably, fallen into the public domain. The largest collection of episodes of "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" has appeared on Classic Adventurers (3pc) (Dol); ten of the series' 30 episodes are available on that collection. This DVD release from Alpha Video replicates the same four episodes that were previously released on another The Adventures of Sir Lancelot, Vol. 1 DVD from Critics Choice Video in 2006. Two of the episodes ("The Ruby of Radnor" and "The Lady Lilith") were originally filmed in color but, unfortunately, are presented on this, and all other U.S. releases, in their black & white versions. While well-worn syndication prints are used for this and the other U.S. releases, the episodes are watchable. The major reason for obtaining this DVD (or the Critics Choice disc) is the inclusion of the fourth episode of the series, "The Outcast." This episode features the future star of "Danger Man" a/k/a "Secret Agent" and "The Prisoner," Patrick McGoohan, in one of his earliest television appearances as the villainous Sir Glavin.

Despite the use of syndication prints, "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" holds up nicely. The black & white prints and low budget will probably turn off many modern day viewers, but fans of classic television programming from this era will find much to enjoy in these episodes. But you really won't need to buy this DVD if you already own the previous disc from Critics Choice.

Cute, but kinda silly... Jan. 9 2009
By counterrev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a cutesie little 50's offering, but no Robin Hood or William Tell. This one strays even farther from any possible connection with history...I think the main difference is that this one can't decide if the protagonist is a hero or a comedian. The Round Table is presented pretty much as a collection of characters, none of whom are particulary outstanding in any way. None of the crises that arise are particularly interesting or important. One gets the feeling that England is a sort of medieval Gillegan's Island...but without the laugh track...which sounds like a plus, but if you had it, you'd at least know when they were TRYING to be funny...I recommend Robin Hood and William tell, and even Buccaneers, over this series---still, it's better than what's being turned out now...
