Camelot - Season 1 DVD

Camelot - Season 1 DVD Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play Television has always managed to thrive and find new angles on period action adventure shows returning in many cases to stories and legends of old That’s what’s happened with the US television series of Camelot which takes similar material that inspired the BBC’s Merlin show but tries to do something a bit more grown up with it That translates to more menace more violence and darker themes bubbling underneath This time Jamie Campbell Bower takes the role of Arthur with Eva Green faring well as his half-sister Morgan The cast is rounded out by the likes of Tamsin Egerton and Joseph Fiennes and the show is billed as the Camelot story “that has never been told before” That’s a bit of dubious claim really although it does try a few things with the legend that give it some distinction But not as much as you’d hope The problem though is that Camelot never sparks consistently into life There’s a lot to like here from the quality of the production design some of the direction and the terrific turn from Eva Green that sits at the heart of many of the show’s best moments But the acting performances are up and down while the writing too lets the side down a little too often Common sense doesn’t always prevail where this Camelot is concerned Camelot remains an enjoyable show and one that’s certainly worth checking out It’s not too hard though to work out the reasons why its light flickered out after only one season run Eva Green though is really rather special here --Jon Foster
