Goofs

Arthur's sword is always shown either inside a leather scabbard or tucked into his leather belt. Yet throughout the entire series, each time he grabs his sword to wield it, it makes a distinctive metallic scraping sound, as if withdrawn from a metal scabbard. This is physically impossible.

Fantastic Family Viewing
4 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've been watching Merlin since the start, and I've just finished watching the third episode of the 13 part series, made by BBC Wales. It's absolutely brilliant and it's made Saturday family viewing that extra bit special. The third episode has been the best so far, and I can't wait to see more of this excellent show.

Regardless of the dissatisfied moaners and complainers on IMDb, this is by far one of the best British family shows the BBC has produced to date. It's that good.

Episode 4 looks even better and I have to wait another week to see it. I definitely recommend Merlin to everyone

More please! 10 Stars from me! Well Done BBC.
