Storyline

Young Merlin is a teenager, discovering and then learning to master his magical gift. Magister Gaius, King Uther Pendragon's learned court physician to whom he's assigned as humble page, teaches him medicine, coaches his magical self-study, and warns him of Uther's strong aversion to magic. Merlin becomes squire to the noble but imprudent crown prince, Arthur, whose fate is linked with Merlin. Written by KGF Vissers

My outlook on Merlin
26 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe people get to carried away with "traditional" outlook on the Merlin. I actually enjoy a fresh modern twist to the whole affair. I do acknowledge the one part of the "hippogryf", but even my youngest daughter did point out they took the time to at least slightly alter it.

As for the dragon, I totally enjoy it. I do realize I have a fascination with them, so seeing one talk with a British accent as most dragons do, (unless it is Sir Sean Connery, then it would be Scottish..LOL) is entertaining for me.

Anything we watch on the television is for entertainment, if you don't enjoy it, then I suggest people not watch it then. I do believe it a refreshing change for t.v., but in America the shows are extremely mundane and lack interest for me anymore.

I tend to watch BBC for my better entertainment viewing.

Keep up the good work Merlin.
