Oh, Merlin!

BBC One’s season 5 premiere of Merlin was incendiary! Awesome! Amazeeeebaaaalllssssss!

From the looks of the first episode, it’s going to be a better, very interesting – maybe Merlin finally confesses to Arthur? – season. It’s darker, sexier and we get more of the Arthurian legends and mythology.  You can easily see that the characters are more grown up and there’s a slight change in the relationship between Merlin and Arthur, too.

Merlin’s no longer a mere servant who walks by Arthur’s horse, he’s a trusted friend. The way these two tease and mock each other is hilarious.

I noticed better special effects as well.

Morgana is to be feared, as always – she’s such a nasty, delicious, great villain, and Gwen looked positively gorgeous in that velvety red gown. So glad we’ll get to see more of her, what with being a queen now.  And Mordred! Ohh, isn’t he a creepy one? Lovely!

If it were possible, I’d watch all the episodes right now. Now, now, now.

  1. AGREED! Loved the first episode, I’ve been so excited about Merlin’s return to TV. I can’t wait to see what happens next. I also noticed that the episode felt darker than usual, makes for a nice change of pace!
