Starz seems to be very much a meat market channel. Every so often we get the exports onto UK TV. I loathed what they did to the Arthur mythos in Camelot. Some storytellers lean towards the romantic legend, others try and tie it in with history better... but Starz viewed both these elements as secondary to displaying as much flesh on screen as they could.
