The series premiere of Merlin received mixed reviews and I was eagerly anticipating the second installment of the new BBC drama as to begin conjuring up my own opinions on the show. After reading the description from TV.com and watching countless BBC trailers, I had mixed feelings as I began watching but sooner rather than later, the action began.
Unlike last week, character development was cast partially aside and more drama and action was crammed into the works as we see the vivacious Merlin hellbent on exposing one of the Tournament competitors as a magic corrupt cheat concealing deadly, commandable snakes within his shield.
If you found last weeks show bleak and lacklustre but you were genuinely intrigued by what the show could potentially offer, this is a must see! I feel this episode will be make or break for this series and I can only personally hope the reviews go well.
The commendable second episode of Merlin receives a pleasant two thumbs up from me and I can only hope you enjoy it as much as I.
