Sadly not [the next Game of Thrones] but it’s a perfectly serviceable slice of escapism while we wait for the next contender.

Other than its visual style, Netflix's "Cursed" represents a pale addition to that mythology, approaching the story from the perspective of Nimue, the Lady of the Lake, without yielding many dramatic ripples.

The story’s lack of fealty to the roles particular characters are meant to play in myth or the way they have traditionally looked can give way to a leaning on modern cliché that suggests a dearth of better ideas.

I never was able to fully give myself over to Cursed, but I never really got bored and I think there's a better show laying in wait for a second season. More Pym, please!

Almost no one can act and those who can are ... taking it easy.

Cursed may not be the most serious or profound program that TV has to offer, but you won't find many shows more solidly built or satisfying.

The Arthurian myth kitty is not so much raided as spilled all over the floor in this adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel focusing on the fairy-woman Nimue.

What gives Cursed its edge is the source material, which subverts centuries of lore and oppressive systems. The Netflix adaptation isn't nearly as captivating, but it still manages to be a quaint escape from reality.
