      I saw just recently this show.

      What I liked very much of this saga is the devised relationship between Arthur and Merlin.

      But apart this the entire epic tale is totally no rhyme or reason:

      For 65 episodes they tell Arthur with Merlin's help will build the Kingdom of Albione and Arthur would

      have been the greatest King that world would be remebered, but I do not know how he can do it being dead. please, at least you could avoid to show us a Merlin dressed like a beggar "to hitchhike

      to Camelot".

      For me it was a great disillusion and I would hope to see it again in a revised adaption

      since the idea was very good.

      My congratulations to all the actors in particular to Colin Morgan and Bradley Jamesmoreless
    • Great show Bad ending

      Love love loved this show! I was (and still) addicted to it.



      But there's just one thing---the ENDING!

      Firstly Arthur dies -sad. Secondly, Merlin never fulfills his destiny - so really the entire series is pointless since it was all leading up to him reuniting the kingdoms and restoring magic which we never got to see because it didn't even happen.



      And something that has really bothered me since --- If Merlin called the dragon earlier then Arthur wouldn't have died. It seemed like they were in a rush to end the series that they didn't care about these plot-holes.

      Anyway, other than that, great show.moreless

      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
