Despite all this, Merlin quickly becomes addictive. The dialogue and special effects can be cheesy (particularly when the CGI monsters have to interact with actors), but the cast is charming and the stories, while a tad formulaic, keep things moving. Morgan is appropriately dweeby (but also has killer cheekbones), James combines football-quarterback good looks with a hint of sensitivity, McGrath is luscious and impetuous, and Coulby has earthy spunk. The heavy lifting, acting-wise, is ably handled by Head and Wilson. The first season deftly explores the origins of the pillars of Arthurian mythos, from the sword Excalibur to a very dashing (but born of peasant stock) Lancelot to the mysterious birth of Arthur himself. Add to it all an imprisoned dragon, voiced by John Hurt (Alien, The Elephant Man) and prone to cryptic but sometimes helpful advice, and you have an engaging fantasy series. In addition to 13 episodes, there's an additional disk with making-of features and video diaries of the young cast gallivanting around France. --Bret Fetzer
We have watched all five seasons and wanted to own them for our family. It is full of magic and some very funny moments. Very fast and efficient delivery from Amazon as usual. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Dalene Ruppel

Great series. The first season was great. The characters are great and seeing Arthur mature throughout the season was fun to watch. Highly recommendedPublished 23 months ago by A. Aguiar
The plots are well laid
out and I would recommend it to my teenaged grandchildren. They would enjoy all the sword fights. The girls would even like the romance in it.
Je suis heureuse de revoir tous les épisodes les uns après les autres. Je me sens légèrement "adicted" mais ça ne va pas durer...Published on Jan. 31 2013 by Sonya Desautels
