- I'm PLEASED it stars James Purefoy and Eva Green. They're the evil characters of the series and I think they've picked the best actors/actress to play the roles of King Lot, Arthur's nemesis and Morgan, Arthur's half-sister who also knows dark magic.
- I'm PLEASED the kid playing Arthur the future King of England, Jamie Campbell Bower, is capable and not at all cheesy.
- I still couldn't get over Joseph Fiennes' failure as the hero of last year's Flashforward, but I'm PLEASED that as Merlin on Camelot he is slowly winning me over as an actor again.
- I am NOT PLEASED to see Claire Forlani old and wrinkly, though. She plays Arthur's mother in this series. But I'm PLEASED to see her on screen, just the same.
And overall? I'd say the show has good casting but not so great writing. I do hope the writing improves as the show progresses. But I've no real complaints about Camelot and would be anticipating the second episode when it airs.
