Wonderful way to start off a wonderful show. I was addicted at first watch lol, and so was the rest of my family and friends.
It flowed nicely with just enough drama, explanations, and comedy to keep you entertained. The way they introduced each character was great, and had you adoring each one right off. Great moments that had me laughing were the scene where Merlin and Arthur meet. I like how they show immediately how prattish and arrogant Arthur is, so that you can see him develop into great King like figure that he's meant to be in the future.
I've watched this one several times just to laugh!
