The premise behind the independent comedy web series WebCamelot is weird - archaeologists discover a hard drive filled with video blogs from citizens of King Arthur's kingdom.
These video shorts expose a side of life in Camelot quite different from myth.
Sounds crazy, doesn't it?
Well, it is, but the series is also funny, and a great satire of our reality show, tabloid obsessed entertainment culture.
Created by David Rice, Josh Crute and Matthew Barnette, every WebCamelot installment is episodic in nature.
Each episode focuses on a singular event - such as a quest or festival - and depicts it through the comical point-of-view of the most notorious denizens of Camelot, including:
- Geoffrey The Troll (Ford Seeuws) A frustrated literary critic with a deep-rooted hatred of all things Yates
- Frances The Priest (Harrison Chambers) A gossipy clergyman who loves the limelight
- Rob The Outlaw (Tim Childers) A ne'er do well whose Jackass - style antics are the bane of the kingdom
- Collette The Damsel (Kayla May) - A frustrated, disaffected maiden whose sole goal is to free herself from her father's tower to P-A-R-T-Y

I found the project's satire to be effective and thoroughly amusing. This light-hearted and zany vision of Camelot is highly recommended for both the young and young-at-heart.
