New servant Cedric muscles in on Merlin's position as Arthur's right-hand man, and turns the prince against his loyal friend. Merlin is convinced the slippery newcomer is up to something, and he is right - Cedric is a conman and a thief who is after a magnificent jewel, recently unearthed in a tomb far beneath Camelot. Little does he know, his precious prize is more dangerous than he could possibly imagine. Camelot has never been more vulnerable, but how can Merlin make things right when, thanks to Cedric, he might have lost Arthur's friendship for good? Merlin faces the prospect of turning to the one creature he swore he would never trust again - The Great Dragon.

    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.

  • 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.
