Well, I've found my newest fandom! And I am liking it so far! Merlin is a tv show that takes the legends of King Arthur and shows them from Merlin's, a young, wizard-in-secretive-training, perspective. Along the way, Merlin must protect Arthur from people (and monsters) that threaten his life, for Merlin has learned that his destiny is intertwined with Arthur's own destiny. The show is great! Although the beginning episodes were just okay, I felt that the storylines really picked up pace and more interest as the series got going. The main characters are wonderful, their is a good deal of humor (which definitely lightens the tone a little bit to what could obviously be a quite dark and grim series), and although the effects and CGI look dated/a little cheap, the good storyline and interesting characters make up for it. I will be watching the rest of the series for sure! And yes, as stated in other reviews, this series is safe for children, probably...10 and up? Only because of mild violence and light cussing.
