How can simple things sometime be over looked. This is a show that brings a new dimension to the the mythical and ever intriguing world of King Arthur. Merlin is young and I hope that we can learn more about his abilities and see what character he will develop into. Monster or hero? Sincerely may this not be the last of this epic story.
Merlin ! We love your shows. In favourites are Gajus :) I have a nephew who loves your shows very much. He are 9 years old, and I am 48 years old and we connect so well through the Merlin.
So you are" our bridge between to worlds" :) If you have time to send my nephew a photo or something related to your great show, I would appreciate it much . Thank you all so much for the show. My nephews addres if you have time is: Kormakur Olafsson, Aegissida 109, 107, Reykjavik, Iceland. With ours best regards to all of you :)
Enjoyable! First season is good. Second season needed to move on and just became a vehicle to get to the Third season which finally begins to move forward and get some character development. Overall a little cheesy, but worth watching for sure.
Merlin had a lot of potential. But very poor production and plot. A "great" wizard who's "greatest" ability in all four seasons is pushing people over. Every time. Pushing people over with telekinesis. That's all he can do. Plus he can crush some leaves and bake a cake. That's about it. I was very disappointed and stopped watching it after the last season ended. Good thing Morgana was hot.
The creators don't want to give us a remake of Merlin, but rather a side to Merlin hitherto unknown.Even with all its conventional take on storytelling, the simplicity worked well for them...and its fun to watch Merlin anytime.
I have seen this show. It was interesting. My only concern about the show is that it is number one on a list of science fiction show list. This show is very much of a fantasy and is set in the middle ages with wizards and witches, and is a parallel to the King Arthur legend. I do not think that it's even the show's fault for being categorized as a Sci-fi, but is most likely the fault of an inconsiderate website to separate the fantasy category from the sci-fi one.
After a good solid 2 seasons it started to go down hill in Series 3. With lazy writing being used with time jumps it has resulted in very poor development of characters on screen. The Series 5 news doesn't really provide positive excitement as it seems that the lazy writing has only begun... Poor use of darkness (they try too hard), bland and repetitive characters (enemies within the walls and Morgana becoming queen in the finale of back-to-back seasons), and very historically inaccurate (people in the medieval ages only lived until 60 and Gaius is far older than that).
Good characters (excluding Agrapain), but they aren't doing much with them other than expressing what they call 'darkness'.
I rate it 6 out of 10 because I liked the first two seasons but as the lazy time jumps kicked in, it made me feel like I have missed an episode which has made me slowly tune out...
when i firest seen the show it give a new look on how legends came to be with twists that some could not have amigien it happeding this could lead new inspirting of it like how merlin came to know aruther our how the sword in the stone was start it this make you think how tel come tell new stories of this and what till do next on merlin and his adventures.
Awesome.. it is so simple, but a great mixture of all emotions.. and with the right amount of humor,. Anyone can enjoy this. loved it...... I really hope for a fifth season...please let thr be a fifth season.
just to be short I love watching series and when I start to watch I normally finish it till the end of the season. There were just 2 series which I didn't/couldn't finish beyond the first few episodes. These were Merlin and Robin hood from BBC. In my opinion the acting is bad, the whole sphere is like not serious acting, but more like childish and you can guess everything that will happen from start to end. It just doesnt deserve anything more than a 1. It's not the worst serie but it shouldnt be compared or put in the same charts as Game of thrones, Spartacus, supernatural and a few others.
It's an oke show for people under 15 years I guess.
The best thing to come across TV in a long, long time. Ever since the likes of Buffy, SG-1, Babylon5 etc ended, television has been increasingly bad. On the one hand there's reality-tv and on the other, over-produced "serious and meaningful" shows. Merlin is a return to basics, in a way. It's simple, it's fun, but it's not stupid. Granted, in the first series the low budget was painfully obvious, but for me it added to the nostalgia. CGI improves drastically over the next two seasons, and plot lines thicken as the show takes on a more mature tone. It does this while maintaining an entertaining and charming story, without trying too hard to be innovative and attention-drawing. If you're tired of shows that compete for "most shocking" title, Merlin is for you.
I LOVE MERLIN!!!! My parents don't let us have a tv, but i watch every episode as it comes out on various websites. Im from Texas and I can honestly say the show is 1000x better than its reviews give it. the actors are hilarious and at moments make me jump from the scary parts. Its hard to find a show with such good story. the filler episodes are funny and when Arthur became King...epic turn for the show, made it even better. 10 outta 10 from Texas (:
Hey, I love this show. I'm in Australia, so for me I watch it every Sunday's at 6:30 PM. I think it's a wonderful show. The actors are great.
The main reason I watch is probably because of Colin Morgan, right? He plays Merlin, and Merlin is actually the whole point of this show =P Bradley plays a pretty important role as well.
Also, the show has it's scary/frightening bits, but at the same time, there are dramatic, funny, hilarious bits in it as well.
The show's effects are so awesome! I enjoy every bit of it. The dark and light part of the show.
Some people say that Angel Coubly isn't "pretty" enough to play Gwen...Don't you think that is slightly judgmental? Okay, a LOT judgmental. I'm sure, Arthur loves her because of her personality & her looks. I think she looks rather pretty, by the way and perfect for her role as Gwen.
