In truth, it's at best a moderately entertaining little talkie that lacks majesty but beats watching a shirtless, slobbified Stephen Baldwin on I'm a Celebrity.
The middling show plays too much like The O.C. with swords, crowns, and a cheesy CGI dragon.
Though it is hugely unoriginal and suffers from the curse of the reset button -- at the end of every episode, the characters all have to return to default settings, often for no strong reason -- Merlin really is top fun.
Overall this wasn't the start I'd hoped for. They've gone so far away from the mythology that I'm not sure what this is supposed to be.
