The hero or heroine’s journey is a common narrative. For some, that journey is the rocky road from youth to maturity.
The television series Merlin (2008-2012) told the story of the young man who would become one of the greatest wizards in mythology. Starring Colin Morgan as the titular character and Bradley James as the future King Arthur, Merlin is initially a servant in King Uther’s (Anthony Stewart Head) Camelot. As time goes on and Merlin grows up, he will become a friend, a companion and a trusted adviser to the man who will be known as King Arthur.
I wasn’t a huge fan of this series, but the fact that it lasted four years says something about the quality of the program.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
One thought on “Flashback Friday-Merlin (2008-2012)”
I enjoyed Merlin the television series! I will admit, when I first saw it, I thought it was too family oriented for my taste. When I watched the developing relationship between Merlin and Arthur throughout the series, I then started liking it more. My disappointment was the final season though – it could have been better written. The final episodes felt very rushed. These are just my thoughts though.
