There are some classic tales that have been so oft told, I could probably go my whole life without revisiting the topic. The legend of King Arthur is certainly one of those stories which has been covered from every angle possible. And I've seen them all--from classical interpretations (Boorman's Excalibur), musical productions (Lerner and Loewe's Camelot), modern day variations (Romero's Knightriders), introspective art house pieces (Bresson's Lancelot du Lac), and countless other incarnations. Yet the story is so vivid and enthralling, it's hard to resist its allure. When I heard that the Starz network was planning to reinvent the legend of "Camelot," I was somewhat apathetic, somewhat worried, but also strangely hopeful. The network is coming off a huge success with its over-the-top bloody sword and sandals epic "Spartacus." So it makes sense they wanted to tackle another period adventure. Love it or hate it, though, "Spartacus" is a graphic spectacle that will assault your senses and leave you reeling. "Camelot" doesn't attempt the same type of visceral in-your-face aggression, but it seems to want to have it both ways. This version is completely sanitized for modern viewers (I'll speak to that later) but still wants to be edgy and provocative (oh look, there's Guinevere topless).

I'm not going to recount the plot of the boy King, other than to say that this version sticks to the primary elements of the tale while trying some creative sleight of hand to reimagine peripheral aspects. When King Uther dies under mysterious circumstances, his sorceress daughter Morgan (Eva Green) seems the likely heir. But cunning Merlin (Joseph Fiennes), who is having visions of foreboding, has a big secret to reveal.

*Two very mild spoilers below*

You must understand, I am a big history buff. So when a friend and I went to the theater some time ago and I saw the trailer for this, I was both elated and saddened (as I don't have Starz.) When I learned that the brilliant mind that helped craft The Tudors, another of my favorite (albeit historically innacurate) series, I was on board, one hundred percent. And while I may have had to wait for streams to go up online to see it, you better believe I was waiting eagerly in front of my computer screen every weekend.

The basic tale of King Arthur is known by all, so no need to repeat that. Here, King Uther has recently died, and his quick witted daughter Morgan sees this as her perfect opportunity to claim the throne she has so long coveted. Merlin, however, has something else in mind. Arthur, having been raised in the countryside unaware of his parentage, is quite surprised to find the sorcerer in his home spewing tales of being the son of a king. Merlin sees a future in this boy, a way to mend a country torn apart by warlord kings, and it will all start in one place, a crumbling stronghold that will stand as a beacon for a new era: Camelot.

It's pretty much common knowledge that a lot of peopele don't like this series. Even as a fan, I admit there is some to be desired, and certain things could have gone better. But there is still a lot to appreciate.

A big sore spot for a lot of people is the casting of Jamie Campbell Bower as the well known king. While yes, I'm sure someone out there could have carried the role better, this choice wasn't a horrible one. This Arthur is not the one we tend to immediately think of.

I wish they never made season one of this series as there will be no more seasons to come. According to IMDB a number of the actors are scheduled for other projects & that is why production has stopped. I love Arthurian themed tv and movies and the castles & village sets seemed so much more authentic to the era.

Arthur starts off as this skinny kid with no regard for Guenevere's relationship and the actor seemed positively wrong for the roll. He started evolving into a man and king and a 2nd season would have developed his character much further, stronger and better. Merlin was magnificent. An entirely different yet fully workable & fascinating spin on the man. I was sorry to see a few of the characters killed off in the first season, I think they were rich for more storytelling.

I truly am extremely disappointed that this has come to an end. I really am. I find myself waiting for whispers of a second season with the original cast even though there is no evidence to support my wish.

more people liked it than disliked it.

Really had a hard time accepting the boy who plays Arthur, seems to me he should have been cast as the farmers pig boy, not as a ledgenday warrior king. I tried very hard to finish watching the series. Well I watched it, it's pretty much crap, but 2 stars for being better than staring at the wall.

It was not even close to the anything like the legend, I guess the names were the same, that's the only nice thing I can say.

I majored in history in College, and even studied Medieval history at Cambridge one summer...but Starz's Camelot is just plain awful. I went into the season open minded, meaning that I was ready for another version of the king Arthur legend since I liked Excalibur and several other versions; however, please note that even I couldn't ever like First Knight. I don't want to give away too many details if you want to watch the series, but be forewarned it sucks due to miscast, poor script,small budget (needed more extras as warrior knights and common folk) and political correctness (modern feminism, multi-cultural/post-racial, etc.). It also smacks of hollywood trying to ride the ambiguity fence...that the characters are neither good nor evil, lies somewhere near the gray area of fallibility etc soap opera. Where are the knights trained in combat arms of the day (heavy cavalry)? They must have spent the whole budget on a few talent and camelot castle CGI because Camelot lacked in depth in many ways.

The opening scene of young Arthur caught after sleeping with his brother's girlfriend...was just wrong. I don't believe that would have occurred back then, but note that it was more revealing of Arthur's character later in the series. Merlin (Joseph Fiennes) was absolutely believable and Fiennes gave an amazing portrayal of a cunning yet "might-be-mad" sorcerer. King Uther's sorceress daughter Morgan (Eva Green) was brilliantly played and deserves recognition. Arthur's knights seemed like real men yet too "clean" and not like the battle-tested rustic knights like Templar Knight James Purfoy from the movie "Ironclad". (and a black-african knight? in England? New one for me.) With Jamie Campbell Bower as King Arthur??? One of the biggest miscasts ever.
