Merlin becomes squire to the noble but imprudent crown prince, Arthur, whose fate is linked with Merlin. Written by KGF Vissers

Not accurate, but incredibly entertaining.
22 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I viewed this new series from NBC last night (June 21st, 2009) when the first two episodes of the series were aired during prime time. All I can say about it is "Go NBC!" It was truly a pleasure to watch.

Seemingly created in the vain of "Hercules", "Xena", "Robin Hood" and "Beastmaster", this show takes it's own spin on the Arthurian legend by rewriting the tale to make it a tad more soap opera-ish. While it is tragic to the Arthur legend, it's really enjoyable if you just let yourself go and watch it for the entertainment value.

There is a bit of violence, and I can perhaps see a few adult situations coming up in the future, but overall I would say that this show is very suitable for the family to sit down and watch...something rare in this day and age.
