The Dark Tower was a great episode of Merlin though it could have been better crafted. I really enjoyed watching because the story was generally good and exciting. The details are where the episode falls short because some of the scenarios or scenes don't exactly add up completely. I liked seeing Morgana try to break Gwen. Merlin tries his best to help and it seems that the Knights relied upon him to easily as they usually question him. The ending was crazy and unexpected. I look forward to watching how plots unfold in future episodes!!!!!
Well the title says it all. Weak production and story all the way. The forest characterthat came out of nowhere and gave merlin directions, the fact that merlin and the nights simply accepted the fact that merlin knew the way to the tower, iyan s death after fighting a sword, the whole episode feels out of perspective and unusually dull, witj much time wasted on the useless trip to the tower. The ending was ok and lets us await the next episode to see how it will play.
While good in the technical effects of the production and bringing the story to life - the story in this episode is nonetheless abysmal, juvenile, wasted much airtime through repetitive scenes and useless dialog, and sets up a predictable and uninteresting plot line for future episode(s). There was nothing truly inspiring creative or original in this episode. The laughable line was when Merlin asked a character to not speak in riddles, and the response was.. Ok...I'll just speak in rhyme then. How about breaking out into a song instead? The writers for this episode failed, and should defer to more seasoned writers of more recent episodes. The bar has been raised by other productions in this overall genre like Game of Thrones. Story is key and needs to stay on mark with high quality or else the whole fails! I felt as if I just wasted my time watching it. Very Disappointed!
