Gwen is mistaken for Morgana and kidnapped by the savage outlaw Hengist. Uther refuses to pay her ransom, so Arthur defies his father and heads out into dangerous enemy territory to fight for Gwen's freedom. Merlin suspects Arthur's devotion to Gwen is more than that of a prince to one of his subjects. How will Arthur react when he discovers Gwen is not alone in Hengist's castle? She and Lancelot have found each other again, and powerful feelings rekindle.

    Cheesy? Sure. But there's enough sword-clanging Action--not to mention homoerotic tension--to keep viewers happily entertained for a spell.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Randee Dawn

    For those new to the legend, this is a fresh, and delightfully color-blind, approach to the tale.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    A lighthearted, quite charming medieval adventure series made by the BBC, is tailored to the age of Obama.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kris King

    Even with its quirky charm, though, the show's formula begins to wear thin.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The middling show plays too much like “The O.C.’’ with swords, crowns, and a cheesy CGI dragon (voiced by John Hurt).

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    It takes the stuff of legend and imagination and makes it dry and commonplace. You look forward not to the next exciting chapter, but for the whole enterprise to go "poof" and disappear.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    It's just that Merlin is clearly shopping for tricks in the bargain bin, and like the song says, the new Camelot's shining moments are all too brief, indeed.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Merlin looks, well, typically British with shoddy production values. Worse, it tells dull stories.
