Storyline

In this off beat account of King Arthur's quest for the Grail, virtually every journey, battle or adventure is stopped dead in its tracks by the knights of the round table's most worldly traits : cowardice, greed, idiocy or misplaced chivalry. As a consequence, instead of epic adventures we are treated with the characters' pragmatic and anachronistic take on each and every event in the Grail legend, true to the purest sitcom tradition. Written by tete-en-lair

Trivia

This show came as a replacement for the hit sitcom Caméra café (2001) (created by and featuring Yvan Le Bolloc'h and Bruno Solo) and is produced by the same company, CALT. This came about when Le Bolloc'h and Solo moved their characters from "Camera café" to the big screen and decided to end the TV series, leaving broadcaster M6's access prime time slot empty. Luckily for all involved Kaamelott proved also to be a hit. See more »

King Arthur, Monty Python and Michel Audiard all rolled into one
3 October 2005 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

In the beginning, I thought, "Oh no, not yet another mockery of the search for the Holy Grail!" I watched, though, and by the end of the first mini-episode, I was totally taken in. The dialogs are brilliant, witty, absurd, and screamingly funny. I honestly don't find any faults with this little jewel. I didn't know we, french, could be as good and daring as Monty Python... We can. It's a relief. Thanks to Alexandre Astier, who dared come out with a preposterous idea (King Arthur is the only intelligent guy in a environment of dorks, dimwits and blockheads: namely, the knights of the Round Table), the tradition of Audiard carries on. The best french TV series I've seen in a very long time.
