CD review: CAMELOT original TV soundtrack

Where the music of King Arthur tends to sweep in like a massively noble symphony on steeds, scoring brothers-in-arms Mychael and Jeff Danna do well by playing their leader as a subtler, second coming for another Showtime series that sexes up mythic history, this time in the realm of CAMELOT. It’s an intriguing setting for a world music approach that creates its sorcery with Indian ragas, exotic percussion, horns and Celtic rhythms, an approach that’s as timeless as it is lyrical. While the Dannas might not have the magic to get the kind of trumpeting orchestral firepower afforded to the […]Read On »

TV Review: CAMELOT – Season 1 – “Three Journeys”

Claire Forlani in CAMELOT - Season 1 | ©2011 Starz

Stars: Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani Writer: Chris Chibnall Director: Stefan Schwartz Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: May 6th, 2010 It saddens me when Period shows fall into all too familiar traps. So often they start of strong and then lose some of the head of steam that they had when they started. CAMELOT has fallen under this dark banner. The latest episode “Three Journeys” felt like a filler in between more important plot threads that were left out of this story’s continuity. King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower) takes off out of Camelot after […]Read On »

Stars: Jeremy Irons, François Arnaud, Holliday Grainger, Colm Feore, David Oakes, Joanne Whalley Writer: Neil Jordan Director: John Maybury Network: Showtime, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: April 24th, 2010 The last episode of THE BORGIAS that I reviewed I stated that the series was slowing down to a dreadful pace, and needed something to save it. Episode five, “Borgias in Love” seemed to quicken the pace and up the ante in the continuing various plotlines. Let’s start where we left off in episode four with Lucrezia Borgia (Holliday Granger) being married off to Giovanni Sforza (Ronan Vibert) to help secure […]Read On »

Stars: Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani Writer: Sarah Phelps & Terry Cafolla Director: Stefan Schwartz Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 29th, 2010 “Justice” is an interesting episode of CAMELOT. It’s one of the first times we get to see King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower) rule without the counsel or advice of Merlin (Joseph Fiennes). Since Merlin has returned from his journey to fetch the king a new sword, and used his magic which cost the lives of both the swordsmith and his daughter; he’s gone a bit round the bend. This is the […]Read On »
