    We watched the premier of Camelot on Starz last night.

    Oh.Mi.Gawd - the worst King Arthur Ever. Eva Green is doing commendable job portraying Morgana - to the extent that one wishes her to defeat Arthur just to put us all out of the misery of watching his pinched face smugness.

    It looked terrible in the Previews.

    I still think "Excaliber" is a gold standard for the genre.

    I prefer The Mists of Avalon as retelling of the Arthurian legend.

    And THAT is why I havent bothered with it, even when it comes out on netflix. The guy those chose for king arthur is an insult to Arthur.

    I like the 1967 musical version with Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave.

    Vanessa was a very credible queenly infidel.

    At the time she was quite the hot ticket, too.
