  • I thought it would be more!

    The show was GREAT!! but, they killed off Authur way to soon and magic was never restored and you never really saw the peaceful and glorious reign of King Authur. Uther's reign was brighter than Authur. I know he had to deal with Morgona but, Authur rule was some what dark and empty. Authur ruled only 3 years, 5 at the most, really! Ending was premuture but over all, I loved the show and wished it lasted much longer.moreless
  • Wish they would start this up again.

    I would love to see this program continued. Very entertaining.
  • Bad! bad! ending

    the producers could have done so much more with those last episodes.. but killing people off like that.. that's not cool
  • Good But Bad. Pissed Off.

    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!


  • Butchered the mythology

    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
