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 »

User Reviews

Hmm ... so much potential, but wasted.
18 July 2020 | by misko-mozolikSee all my reviews

First major issue. Lot of reviews are about that this show cannot decide, if this is a proper fantasy for adults or teenage romance drama. I agree and add one thing to this idea, that balance between this two formats is weird and for me, as more demanding viewer, dumb. Add 2 stars if you are casual viewer.

Second major issue is a lore of that world. You start watching it like: " there will be some paralel between legend of king Arthur and Excalibur sword". And that is mistake. Only the names are similar. I like historical accuracy, but this is about something else and it should be mentioned for example in first 5 min of show.

Third major issue is "Netflix pattern" for this shows. So rebel teen got power, fighting against parents, want to run, then "unexpected" twist, ... :D So this is hard to watch again and again and again.

Dialogues and script. I have feeling that i have seen and heard it already in others fantasy shows or movies. So unoriginal. Acting is sometimes bad, sometimes good. Fighting choreography is ... is there at least :D

In general, good show for summer. With tons of blood in there not for kids, with weak plot and dialogues and lot of teen drama not for adults.
