Screener Squad: Cursed

Cursed TV Series Review


We all know the stories of Camelot. Chosen by the legendary sword Excalibur, King Arthur Pendragon, with his Knights of the Round Table rules the kingdom as a mighty and just king. Well, until his sister and wife ruin it. But what if Excalibur chose a queen first? That is the question posed in this Netflix original, as Nimue (future Lady of the Lake) navigates murderous Red Paladins, royal knights, Vikings, and her own raging hormones as the sword leads her into her destiny as Queen of the Fey. Based on the book by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller (Yes, ‘that’ Frank Miller.), Mindy, Jena, Harmoni, Mark, and Matt discuss whether this show shines on into myth and legend, or is as cursed as its namesake.
