The programme is a reimagining of the traditional legend, in which a skilled young sorcerer called Merlin is sent to the bustling kingdom of Camelot by his mother, and becomes personal servant to Prince Arthur Pendragon, the (slightly arrogant) son of the tyrannical King Uther.

My thoughts on the show!
This is one of my favorite shows! This is one of the better retellings of Legend of King Arthur. It follows Merlin who becomes Arthur’s manservant after he is sent to Camelot by his mother to work with Gaius the doctor as his apprentice for the palace and the kingdom. The show is really entertaining to watch because of the comedic element that resonates through the show. I highly recommend this show to anyone that loves the King Arthur legend! It even has Anthony Head who played Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Uther Pendragon! Also, if you do not know the King Arthur legend then please look it up before you watch the show!
Another Similar Recommendation: The discussion is closed but if you would like for me to open it up then let me know. If not, just read what the show is about since it’s on Netflix as well.
Lol I understand whet you mean! Though recent CGI has come a long way since then. I’m not sure when you friend made the dragon so I can’t say just how much has changed. Although that sounds really cool, did it move around or was it a still 3D picture?
I love those parts too! I sometimes listen to the video compilations people have made of both Merlin and Arthur being sassy throughout the show.
Omg, that is one of the funniest parts of the show!
That’s exactly what I thought too. What would be the point of a sixth season? I’m going to keep my eye out for more information if this ends up true. I mean, they could do a spin-off series for the show. It’s not too late for that.
