Review - Camelot Season 1 Episode 6 Three Journeys

With an episode titled "Three Journeys" you have to hope that the three journeys will intersect at some time. Camelot is a show which we expect a lot from, simply because of the name, and so far, we haven't gotten a taste of the grandness upon which the show is based on. The small, encapsulated stories which have occupied the first half of the season haven't been epic at all and the second half of the season so far has been the same.

The episode spends a lot of time focusing on the characters--Merlin, Kay, Leontes, and Gawain, Arthur and Guinevere, Morgan and Sybil--but at the end of the episode there are little consequences to speak of. The books are recovered and we see more of Merlin's powers, but those aren't big developments. Morgan shows her mettle once more in dealing out justice and we learn that Sybil was doing extracurricular practices are the nunnery, but those too have little impact on anything else. Arthur and Guinevere, meanwhile, engage in the flirty behavior of the first couple episodes, very CW-y and pointless.

Score: 7.5/10
