    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
  • A great show

    It was a truly great show, and the ending was spectacular!

    (ENDING SPOILER ALERT)

    Most people miss the whole point of the ending, mostly because most people dnt know the true legend. Arthur was supposed to die by mordred's hand since the very beginning. Merlin does not die, and Arthur never comes "back to life" as most people think (at least for the present day *winkwink*). The ending was really beautiful though, and the fact that it stayed pretty close to the legend made it even better. I don't think the ending was rushed at all, and the fact that merlin told Arthur the truth the very end made it even more emotional, especially because if he didn't, Arthur would have had to kill Merlin (according to the law).

    Overall, great show! And even though the seasons has its ups and downs and sometimes the stories become repetitive and it's hard to watch, the ending is really worth it! :Dmoreless
  • Best TV show but a disapointing ending.

    The show was perfect since the beginning. the actors really knew how to make someone to be glued to the TV, the last season started well but the final episode was not what I was hoping for. like everyone else watching Merlin we always wanted to see how Arthur would continue ruling Camelot knowing that Merlin has magic. but instead the writer decided to disappoint our suspense and have Merlin confess at the last 5 minutes of the final episode. to be honest I am tired with almost all the series programs ending with suspense I miss the shows with a good and happy ending.moreless
