Camelot's new trailer promises sweaty, sexy Arthurian adventures

As we've mentioned before, Starz's new Camelot series is attempting to reinvigorate the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the round table with some good old-fashioned sex and violence. But the thing that strikes us is ... when did everyone get so young?

Yes, of course, you can tell a perfectly valid version of the Arthurian legend with a youthful lead. Heck, Disney's animated Sword and the Stone is a wonderful little movie, and the man who would be king is still a wee lad.

But looking at Jamie Campbell Bower, he looks like he's 12. Reimagining or not, no one in medieval England had skin so unblemished.

Despite what looks like a heaving serving of swordplay, peat moss and bawdy bedroom activity, I can't help but get a bit of a Camelot Babies vibe.

What do you think?
