In his determination to rule magic out of Camelot forever, Uther hires the services of Aredian, a terrifying witch hunter who is most feared due to the fact that he stops at nothing in the quest to uncover all and every kind of sorcery. Even though no one is under direct suspicion, several people in Camelot are afraid that the witch hunter could see straight through them: Morgana is worried that Uther might have her executed and Gaius is concerned for the fate of Merlin and his own, since caring for the young warlock is considered crime and treason. Will all three be able to escape a dreadful fate?

    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.
