'Camelot' Hunk Peter Mooney on Sword Fighting, Love Triangles and Leather Pants

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Sep 26th 2011 2:00PM
peter mooney, camelotHave you been watching 'Camelot'? If not, you're missing out. The epic series premiered in mid-September, and it over-delivers on its promise of sexy medieval tales. Even if you think you know all there is to know about the famous Arthurian legend, the series re-imagines it with an intriguing new perspective.

'Camelot' boasts an all-star cast including Joseph Fiennes ('Shakespeare in Love'), Bond Girl Eva Green ('Casino Royale') and Jamie Campbell Bower ('The Twilight Saga') as King Arthur. Canadian up-and-comer Peter Mooney co-stars as Arthur's loyal brother Kay.

AOL TV caught up with Mooney while he was driving to pick his Dad up from the airport (awww). We chatted about what makes this 'Camelot' so different, his newfound appreciation for leather pants and the inevitable 'Game of Thrones' comparisons.

Not Your Average Sword-in-the-Stone on 'Camelot' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 4th 2011 5:00AM
Arthur's Sword on 'Camelot'In a grown-up version of the Arthurian tale of 'Camelot' (Fri., 10PM ET on STARZ), the sword that helps fulfill Arthur's destiny as king is not located in a tranquil forest or some other easily accessible vantage point. It is lodged on a cliff in the middle of a waterfall.

In the two-hour premiere, Arthur climbs the slick rocks and attempts to pull the sword from the stone face. It won't budge. Finally he hears a voice: "Stop pulling at me, and start pushing yourself."

He does what he's told, pushing the sword further into the mountain. It easily sinks in, then launches out from the mountain, carrying Arthur with it. He's a little scratched and bruised, but nothing a king can't handle.

"Send a signal. Light the beacon," says Merlin (Joseph Fiennes). "Tell everyone the new king has come."

Review: 'Camelot' Tries to Find Magic in Arthurian Tales

by Maureen Ryan, posted Apr 1st 2011 11:00AM
'Camelot' (10PM ET Friday, Starz) a new retelling of the ancient Arthurian myths, makes some smart choices.

In a terrific performance, Jamie Campbell Bower makes Arthur seem both naive and impetuous, and Joseph Fiennes' Merlin doesn't go in for magical solutions; he's more a political operative consciously building a myth around the untested Arthur as ancient Britain threatens to descend into tribal anarchy. There's even a clever take on sword-in-the-stone tale.

Yet there are some tonal clashes within this handsome series, and there's an unfortunate stop-start quality to 'Camelot's' momentum. The first couple of episodes of the Starz drama have a relatively brisk pace, but the third one has elements of mawkish soapiness that slow down the action considerably.

'FlashForward' - 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' Recap

'FlashForward' - 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'
(S01E18)
Dyson Frost is a bad man. He's been doing stuff related to the flashforwards for years now. The whole situation is far more complicated than we ever imagined, and yet almost everyone we've met who's a part of whatever was behind the global incident seems to be a reluctant participant.

Certainly Gabriel (James Callis) was reluctant to be as involved as he was. It's not clear what his mental state was before the blackout, though we know he's a savant and was already hospitalized, but he's agitated, nervous and very frustrated right now. Perhaps that comes from knowing too much.

'FlashForward' - 'Let No Man Put Asunder' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 15th 2010 11:07PM
'FlashForward' - 'Let No Man Put Asunder'(S01E16) Well, I'm going to have to take serious issue with at least one of the plot threads that went down in this episode, but we'll get to that in a bit. For the first time since 'FlashForward' came back, we knew what day it was: three days before March 15, when Demetri is supposed to die.

Some nice plot threads were woven together, which should make for some interesting drama as we continue hurtling toward our April 29 deadline. It was nice to see Aaron Stark pulled back into the saga, along with a continued focus on Jericho. I still haven't figured out how they're connected to everything just yet, but it should be fun watching Stark try and find out.

The enigmatic Dyson Frost surprised me by taking a far more active and present role in the events of the episode than I would have ever expected. I was anticipating this mysterious shadowy figure making cryptic statements in the background to confound and frustrate Mark, and us. I couldn't have been more wrong.

'FlashForward' - 'Queen Sacrifice' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 9th 2010 2:32AM
Christine Woods, 'FlashForward'(S01E15) After reading that title, I got out my chess board to watch this episode. While amateur players tend to strive to protect their queens, experts know that sometimes the best strategic move is a queen sacrifice. Is that idea what 'FlashForward' was going to be exploring this week, or is it just Aaron selling all his old Queen LPs to finance his crusade against Jericho?

It's a bit of a blow for me to find out that the characters won't be reaching their April 29 flashforward moments on the April 29 episode. I was looking forward to the synchronicity, and it at least gave me hope that I would know what day it was in the show for a moment. That hiatus has shifted things back, and now we don't know when the characters will meet their dates with destiny.

What we do know is that while Mark seems to be taking big steps toward helping his flashforward come true by moving out of the house, at least one major character seems to be doing everything in his power to thwart his.
