Syfy Returns to Camelot with Merlin


This nervy, comedic reboot of the Camelot legend started off with a Prince Arthur (Bradley James) who was a bit of a moron and a young, gauche Merlin (Colin Morgan) who must keep his magic a secret — but it now kicks into serious gear.

Last season, Merlin tried to kill the seemingly innocent Morgana (Katie McGrath) when she fell under the spell of a wicked sorceress... read more

Back in the office, things aren't any merrier when Jo's FBI agent ex-husband (David James Elliott) visits. — Tim Holland

Miami Medical

Miami Medical
10/9c CBS
A top-notch cast is the main reason to give this Jerry Bruckheimer-produced medical drama, which takes place in a Miami trauma unit, a look. Jeremy Northam stars as a former military surgeon newly arrived in Miami from Baltimore. He's thrown into action in the intense pilot when the unit's chief (Andre Braugher) inexplicably walks off the job during an operation. Rounding out the superb cast are Mike Vogel, Lana Parrilla, Elisabeth Harnois and Omar Gooding. While the series doesn't break any new ground, its compelling, likable characters should provide viewers with sufficient reasons to return to this lively unit.
