Audience Reviews for Merlin: Season 2

    People are calling it predictable which frustrates me most. If they watch it all the way through they would be more than extremely surprised. I also saw a rating saying that this show is for adults who are tired of "sex and the f word." *deep breath.* this show is rated PG. It is for all ages. If it had "sex and the f word" I would be highly concerned. This show is for fantasy lovers who don't particularly like all that teenager drama that you see in EVERY SINGLE American tv show. Riverdale, Stranger Things, Outer Banks, and every crime show in the godforsaken universe is so extremely tiring because of all of the romance drama crap. This is centered around a friendship. It is lighthearted, funny, and a show that a family can enjoy together. Enough about the SGI. Who actually cares? Just because a show is on a low budget doesn't mean it's bad. I would actually say it's rather fantastic. Good life lessons, fantastic actors, a good plot, and a captivating setting. This show is one of a kind and I'm getting tired of people who watch 10 minutes into the first episode and say " the sgi is crap" and then leave.

    With a better script than the first season, Merlin season 2 is an improvement comparing to the first season, but its poor visual effects and predictable story are still there.

    Awesome experience. Truly unbeatable.

    This series is better than the last with Colin Morgan being hilarious and working well with every character on screen. the Highlights of this series is the Curse of Cornelius Sigan, the Sins of the father being my favourite and the Last Dragonlord being a really emotional episode when Merlin's father dies. I'm glad there's a 2-part episode in this. Unfortunately, there are many dull episodes such as the Nightmare Begins, the Lady of the Lake and the Witch's Quickening.

    Uff, season 2 and 3 were the toughest ones for me. Uther more and more becomes a ridicolously over-the top character, at some point making me just hope that all the formulaic attempts to assasinate him finally succeed. But no, you are somehow convinced that the most villainous character, which basically is the archetype of a tyrannic narcissist, is somehow the force of good that needs to be safed. I'm not sure how much of this was intended, but if it was, it mostly failed to convey the tough decisions in a grey zone between good and evil. However, I'm happy I pulled through, because the show definitely got better after this one, and with season 4 and 5, it took a place within my favourites.

    If you want a program like nothing else then this is the one for you. Very well written, beautifully focused/designed & warmly entertaining. Constant character development without it feeling forced - a real breath of fresh air!

    one of the better early seasons. This was the season that really sold the series to me, Morgana's turning point and the introduction to Morgause made it really good.

    The second season keep the high level script, but fail in making a character development.
