Did You Know?


Nimue is the name given to various incarnations of a witch/sorceress in many movies and TV shows (most recently, the Blood Queen in Hellboy (2019). The mythology on which the characters are based indicate she was schooled in magic by Merlin before, ultimately, binding and imprisoning him forever. Other myths have her becoming the 'Lady of the Lake' who raised Sir Lancelot, returning Excalibur to King Arthur and, eventually, taking his body to the realm of Avalon. (The two variations, however, seldom exist in the same telling of the story.) See more »

Decide For Yourself
14 August 2020 | by lukecole24See all my reviews

I was reluctant to give this a go. A lot of these reviews seem to be people who are crying over the lore. It's messed up for real but it's an alternative spin, it's something different.

It's a decent ride. I agree it doesn't know what it wants to be, it goes from some good action and fantasy to teenager love affair / empowerment frequently. Teething issues are to be expected and I hope it finds a good balance in new seasons. Some CGI good, some not so good.

I enjoyed this overall. If you're into fantasy TV and want a light hearted casual watch then this is a really good bet. If you're hardcore into lore and hate change, or you're expecting an epic in the GoT category, then don't bother. But do give it more than a couple of episodes.
