Last week I stumbled upon a show called 'Merlin' which the SyFy channel was showing. I DVRed the season one marathon & set my DVR to record season two each friday. Its a British show which caught my attention because one of the stars was Anthony Stewart Head (who played Giles on Buffy).

Sir Thomas Mallory is rolling over in his grave. The show is much more Harry Potter than Morte d' Arthur. Nevertheless my wife and I are enjoying it immensely. My 12 year old niece who is a huge Harry Potter fan also enjoys it a lot. It reminds me more of older TV shows. More of a family TV show than the explicit sex & violence which takes over even the 8pm slot on most networks.

If you are a fan of sword & sorcery check it out.

I don't know what a Merlin is but I agree with you that the sex & violence on TV makes for some good gritty programming.
