Budd, how do you like Starz' CAMELOT? I find it quite strange so far. The show is overly dark and unfocused, and some of the actors (mainly Arthur) are horrible. I'm quite surprised not to be amazed by a historical show, it never happened to me before :(

CR-I am going to send a no prize your way as well as you got Mary Stewart right and that was probably a little more obscure than a bonus should be.
