In case you missed it, the Starz channel gave viewers an early sneak peek at the pilot episode of their new series “Camelot” last Friday after the final episode of “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena”. I have to admit, it was pretty nifty; I’m also very glad I was wrong, that there really is magic still left in the show — by which I mean, Merlin and Morgana do seem to use magic in their quests — hers to take the crown, his to protect it. Here’s a preview of some of the upcoming episodes of Season 1.
In the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, the sorcerer Merlin has visions of a dark future and installs Arthur as king. But Arthur’s cold and ambitious half sister Morgan will fight him to the bitter end for control of the crown. Faced with the challenge of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception, Arthur will be tested beyond imagination.
Starring Jamie Campbell Bower, Tamsin Egerton, Joseph Fiennes, Claire Forlani, Eva Green, Peter Mooney, Diarmaid Murtagh, Clive Standen, Philip Winchester, Sinéad Cusack, Jamie Downey, Lara Jean Chorostecki, and Daragh O’Malley.
The show officially premieres April 1, 2011 with a two-hour/two-episode night.
