    All The Episodes Were Perfect From Season 1 Through Season 5 And A Half.. Why?

    Well Because For Some Reason The Ending Didn't Make Any Sense And What A Crappy Ending.. Did They Not Want To Make More Episodes? Were They Lazy To? They Could Have Made AtLeast 7 Seasons.. There Was Enough To Make 7 Seasons.. I Mean Like Really?

    At The End..

    1. Authur Doesn't Relive.

    2. The Girl ( High Priest ) ( Forgot Her Name.. ) Doesn't Know Merlin Is The Old Version Of Him..

    3. What The Hell Happens To The Damn White Rare Dragon?

    4. Why Doesn't He Keep The White Dragon?

    5. Why Is The White Dragon Sick And Frail?

    6. Why Doesn't The Whole Camelot Find Out.. That He Has Magic And The Savior?

    7. Why Doesn't Magic Return To The Land? The Correct Way.. ( Why Don't It Show It?! )

    8. Why Doesn't Authur Know That Merlin Has Been Saving His Ass The Entire Fricking 5 Seasons..

    9. Why Are There Only 13 Episodes For Each Season And Not 18 - 25

    10. Why Doesn't Merlin Find Any Love? Why Aint There

    11. Why Is Merlin So Fugly? I Mean Like Litterly? The Evil Dude ( The Little Kid / That Killed Authur ) When Hes All Grown Up Is Like 100 Times Sexier Than Him..

    12. What Happens To Everyone? What Happens To The Old Dude.. The Queen... And I Mean Like Theirs No Death Or GoodByes.



    At The End... He Is Like A Hobo.. And Has No Where To Live... And Its Like Around The 2000 - 2014.

    You Get My Point Fricking Horrible Ending!

    HORRIBLE.

  • Butchered the mythology

    2.0
    I'm not going to go long.. but once I hit the 3rd season and they were still pulling the trite and unskilled "o look, somehow no one notices anything" BS I finally had to spoil myself and then laughed before getting pissed that a bunch of hacks were allowed to butcher the mythology of Arthur and Merlin... two years of the games I could take, but when it just kept going and keeps going til the bloody end of the normal myth then it's just time to admit it's utter crap by any standards. There is no defending this show at this point... too many screw ups with the major points of mythology and characters, especially the bond and understanding between Merlin and Arthur... and I thought the more equal friends route could be good. Too bad they hired a bunch of idiots that couldn't actually understand the mythology at all.moreless

    that we had more time when Arthur knew Merlin's true identity. But pretty much my favorite show of all time. I particularly recommend it if you enjoy bromance!
  • Best Show Ever!

    I love everything about this show. This is my favorite show of all time, my friends and I actually dressed up as the characters from Merlin for Halloween, it was pretty awesome. I wish there were more seasons of this show, but overall I am very happy with it.
  • Merlin ending

    To be honest this was one of the best shows I've seen in a long time and I though the ending was perfect. Although the show didn't stick to the legend exactly it did always stick to the basics and unfortunately who dies and by whose hand is one of those things they have to follow. It was heart wrenching but I think that everything happened when it was supposed to, had Merlin told Arthur sooner he would have been kicked out of the kingdom and unable to help Arthur in the future. I think that Arthur and Merlin did build a better Albion and gave it better people to lead (Gwen and the Knights). Just because the end of a show makes you sad doesn't mean it was bad, it made you feel something and that makes it good TV.moreless
