I’ve always been a fan of imaginative worlds that might have existed once upon a time; legends. Legends and folklore captivate my attention and one of the best legends around is the story of Camelot, King Arthur and the nights of the round table. Merlin a BBC America production has been viewable in America on one of my favorite channels, ScyFy. Merlin the Complete Second Season became available on DVD January 18th.
Merlin is about the forging of a strong relationship between the future King Arthur and his servant the warlock Merlin. In a land where magic is strictly prohibited, Merlin secretly uses it every day to protect the future of Camelot and his best friend Arthur. I watched Season Two and loved it! I was so happy to see the Lady Morgana finally embrace her path to the dark side. She is completely evil now in Season 3, oh wait, I’m getting ahead of myself but I can’t help myself because she is one of my favorite characters.
You’ll find that I enjoyed Merlin the Complete Second Season so much that I had an extremely difficult time waiting for Season 3 to begin. I know Merlin felt like he really couldn’t trust Morgana, but I almost feel that if he would have shared his secret with her, he would have saved the whole kingdom a lot of trouble. Just my 2 random cents there!!
Synopsis: Merlin is back with even more magic, adventure and romance as the young wizard struggles to protect Prince Arthur in the perilous world of Camelot. While battling deadly assassins, mystical monsters and the most powerful sorcerers Camelot has ever seen, Merlin must work harder than ever to conceal his unique abilities, as King Uther redoubles his war against magic. And Merlin isn’t the only one whose destiny calls—Lady Morgana , Uther’s ward, discovers dangerous secrets she dare not reveal; Lancelot returns, changing everything for both Gwen and Arthur; and King Uther fall in love, little knowing that the charming Lady Catrina is secretly a hideous troll. And as Arthur continues on his path from arrogant prince to the noble and just King Arthur of legend, we see the return of the one prophesized to kill him—the mysterious druid boy, Mordred. Featuring exciting new villains, white-knuckle stunt sequences, and spectacular CGI monsters, Merlin season two is more thrilling than ever.
