It takes a bit of gumption as a TV executive to say that the world needs another series based on the tales of King Arthur, but someone over at Starz did just that. However, Camelot has me interested because of its inclusion and centering of one of the Arthur legend's most maligned characters, Morgan. Played here by Eva Green, Morgan is Arthur's half-sister who is basically pushed aside by Merlin so that Arthur may take the throne. Considering how willing Morgan is to use dark magic to take back what she feels is rightfully hers, the whole series looks to be the most epic TV show about sibling rivalry ever.
Tonight is the Season 1 finale of Starz's soapy guilty pleasure Camelot retelling, and all I can do is wonder why they didn't save this series for the summer to begin with. It's full of boobs, melodrama, bad acting, cheesy fantasy and beautiful gore. It's basically True Blood with British accents, if you think about it.
