Storyline

Young Merlin (Colin Morgan) is a teenager, discovering and then learning to master his magical gift. Magister Gaius (Richard Wilson), King Uther Pendragon's (Anthony Head'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 (Bradley James), whose fate is linked with Merlin. Written by KGF Vissers

Merlin
13 October 2008 | by George-Kornikoski-1See all my reviews

I would love to see more than one season devoted to this masterpiece of a TV series. Each episode gets better and better. It's obvious the writing is great and the scripts are masterpieces. Keep up the great work. Certainly looking forward to the next episode where Lancelot is brought in to the storyline. Great cast too. I too note Merlin and Arthur are becoming closer to each other on a friendship basis. The show has a lot of good emotion in it. Good action and that right touch of keeping you on the edge, like what is going to happen next. I really like that. Just like Robin Hood, keeps you on the edge. Another great television series.
