|As dpebbleson said in his/her excellent commentary, we devoted fans are already experiencing a death with the end of the show. How "right" it would seem to have been to have Merlin and Arthur return and the final scene with Merlin seated on the king's one side (in new clothes) and Gwen the other and the hope for the building of Albion still intact. Mordred could have survived and be somewhere "out there" but not this. Poor Merlin never got his change of clothes except to be a wanderer looking old man in this time period where no one believes in any kind of magic. We don't even know if the Dragon's promise will hold true as some of his others didn't. All Merlin's friends are gone and together in Avalon paradise, and he's left in this hopeless place. We know that TPTB had the perfect right to do what they wanted with their show, but a very bad taste was left in the mouths of many a fan and it's a shame to have your show remembered that way. They really lost out a bit I'm sorry to say. But oh well, life will go on for most of us and hopefully we'll find another show we love. |
