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the entire series, each time he grabs his sword to wield it, it makes a distinctive metallic scraping sound, as if withdrawn from a metal scabbard.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.

fun, thrills and all round family entertainment
8 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Folloing on in the BBC's rich vein of mythical/historical adventures, in Merlin we have another entertaining, fast paced, family thriller sure to please countless people of all ages and backgrounds. Merlin follows a simple but effective structure often found in its genre, with Merlin as the unsung hero often struggling to keep his magical talents and work secret, Arthur the kings' son who often appears unfriendly and arrogant but shines and shifts when called to make tough decisions, and a slightly evil king whos' path of unfortunate events has ultimately led to his personality and biased hatred of magic. Add to the mix some romantic plot lines that never quite seem to materialize and the constant fret of fiends and enemies to the kingdom, occasionally intertwined with some harsh prophecy and the result is a 5 star exciting, fun adventure.
