Really beautiful show about the journey of young Merlin!
It reminds a bit of Clark Kent's journey in Smallville.

I love the whole King Arthur story, so when I found this show, I was excited. It's lighthearted fun and is a pleasure to watch and rewatch. If that's enough for you, then tune in for Bradley James' jaw, that strong square jaw.

Merlin's been a staple part of my Saturday night tv for years and although the historical inaccuracies and plot lines make me cringe on a very regular basis, it's a bromance between Merlin and Arthur along with a solid supporting cast that really make it essential viewing.

The character development with Arthur and Merlin is done very well over the 5 series and it's in part to the fantastic portrayal by the actors and partly the surprisingly accurate responses to the almighty events thrown at the two of them. And the on screen oh-my-gosh-just-kiss-already romance certainly helps things along! The camaraderie between the knights, Arthur and Merlin in the later series make the show feel very easy going and relatable (for a historical drama anyway!) and the beautiful soundtrack reminds you that it's a fantasy drama you're watching! All in all, enjoyable watching, if not the most developed or original series out there.

BBC does it again. Merlin is yet another comedic drama with amazing talent and strong characters of both genders. The only thing missing was the sailing of my OTP, but to be honest, I knew that wouldn't happen.

Just finished rewatching the show and I found whole new reasons to love it. Arthur is such an honorable man and Merlin, loyal. I still cried and laughed. It was wonderful to fall in love with the Arthurian myth all over again.
