Camelot: Season 1 (2011)



Critic Consensus: A racy take on an oft-told tale, Camelot boasts high production values and decent action scenes but gets bogged down by jarring tonal shifts and silly dialogue.

Tv Season Info

A dark, brawling, lusty saga set during the dark days of 6th-century Britain. There's treachery, adultery, savagery, chicanery, derring-do and political intrigue. Jamie Campbell Bower is the dashing monarch, King Arthur, and Joseph Fiennes is his Machiavellian mentor, the magician Merlin. Eva Green (Morgan Pendragon) and Tasmin Egerton (Lady Guinevere) round out the top line cast.

There's a fair amount of jolly good fun, and rarely a dull moment.

Most people excited to tune in a Starz version of Camelot won't be disappointed by this unique take on the legend.

No expense has been spared bringing Camelot to the small screen and the high production values do a great service to the story that is being told.
