Camelot

I just watched the first episode of Camelot and I'm impressed.  It's high on the sex and nudity (which doesn't bother me, but isn't a major selling point either), but I'm also seeing some interesting character development and possibly ways of developing the storyline in the future.

A character died whom I would rather have seen live as I think they could have had an interesting impact on the series, but you can't win them all.

I think I'm going to like this show as much as I like 'Merlin', but for different reasons.  The character of Merlin in 'Camelot' is deeper and darker and very much aware of his own potential for evil.  One can already see that he may come under pressure to do things that could push him close to the edge.  I think magic is dangerous for him morally - which makes one ask what is the source of magical power in this particular universe.

Both shows are looking at what makes a good king, but being an adult show, I'm hoping that 'Camelot' may be able to explore the complexities of this a little more.  I'm hoping it won't let me down on this angle.
