But the once and future king has really gotten more than his fair share of rotten movies and TV, and the latest disaster is "Camelot." No, not the Broadway musical or the movie adaptation -- this is Starz's attempt at updating the timeless Arthurian legends (which don't NEED updating), which just turns into a silly, sloppy and overly PC mess.
The evil princess Morgan (Eva Green) murders her father Uther, exiles her stepmother, and allies herself with her dad's enemy King Lot. But Merlin (Joseph Fiennes) is having none of this, and hunts down Uther's secret illegitimate son Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower), who has been raised by an adoptive family in the country. With Merlin's guidance and training (in rock-climbing), Arthur claims the throne --and gains Morgan's wrath.
He also falls in love with Guinevere (Tamsin Egerton), the beautiful young wife of a loyal knight, and is deftly manipulated by Merlin in decidedly unmagical ways, sometimes with bloody outcomes. As young Arthur struggles to unite Britain under him, he must deal with Morgan constantly trying to undermine his rule and his power -- but with little idea of just how far she will go.
The idea behind "Camelot" is not a bad one, and even the rewriting of Arthurian lore (the origins of Excalibur) aren't that bad. The problem is in the execution. This series wants to be a plot-heavy, gritty, authentic "Game of Thrones"-esque story, but it's actually more of a silly, anachronistic BCC "Robin Hood" (complete with multiculturalism and modern feminism, which makes it doubly ridiculous).Read more ›
Now that it has I Am Not Disappointed!!
The actors really do the story justice.
My only wish is a longer series.
If you like King Arthur and Camelot stories,
then you will Love this version of Camelot!!
The acting is absolutely horrendous, but of course if you are the kind of person who enjoys 'hit' shows like Twilight mixed with a bit of Virtuality, Merlin and topped with a slice of Real House Wives - Los Angeles then this pile of cow dung should suit your expectations perfectly.
Let me be clear, this is not worth wasting your money on and in ten years will be thoroughly forgotten by the masses.
Instead, I recommend a series called Game of Thrones, based on George R. Martin's fantastic novels. This is a story of constant intrigue, clever manipulation, deceit, death and lust for power. I admit the nudity and sex scenes are a little over the top as is everything on TV, but the depth of story, character development and setting are top notch and who doesn't want to watch a great actor like Sean Bean? I have of course read these novels previously and can say that the tv series does it's best match the books considering the scope of the story and magical elements.

This was just the right gift for my sister, a huge fan of television and the lead actor. This is a beautifully put together series, I'd say watch it!Published on Oct. 18 2013 by Ange
This series is so awesome. It's a very different take on the Arthurian legend and really fantastic. Jamie Campbell Bower's portrayal of Arthur was magnificant. Read morePublished on Dec 1 2012 by Diane Desormeaux
