I'm going to stick my neck out on the line here and call out those lurking the discussions section of the site to come to the Merlin page and try the first and second episode (when it airs tonight, 7:30PM BBC1 (UK)).
As much as people are having difficulty accepting Merlin replacing the increasing popular Doctor Who, the show is starting to show the tell tale signs of becoming interesting.
All I ask is if Doctor Who and the likes of Torchwood sparked a glimmer of interest in any of you, give Merlin a shot. Sure, it doesn't branch off of the same Genre, but the audience is the same and I think if you try a episode 1 and tonights episode, you may start to find yourself enjoying the show!
I hope some of you may agree and stick around for tonight's show, I'll try to have it in the link section as soon as possible after it airs.
