King Arthur, "Smallville"-style? That's one way to frame the British import "Merlin," the series airing Sunday nights on NBC that takes the once and future king from Camelot and presents him as a still-learning prince, just as "Smallville" has, for nine seasons, given viewers a young Clark Kent still being forged into the Man of Steel. "What happens if we look at Arthur and Merlin before they become the men that they become?" is how the premise is summed up by Anthony Head, who stars as King Uther Pendragon, the father of Arthur.

By writing and directing a musical version of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," a singing and dancing episode that Whedon, the show's creator and executive producer, says he's been itching to do. A splash of "Rent," maybe some tap shoes, lots of feeling.
