Every now and then a surprise is nice – Merlin
“The Moment of Truth” proved me wrong on my character development theory. (or lack there of) When Merlin’s home village is threatened, his mother flees to Camelot to beg for their help. Camelot can not, the village is in another kingdom and if they invade a war will follow.
So Merlin decides to go home and his new friends follow. Gwen, Morgana and even Arthur.
This episode is what I wish Merlin would have been like all of the time, but it hasn’t been and all I can say is the word in Merlin’s life is “cancellation.”
I only had the chance to watch part of the next episode, “The Labyrinth of Gedref” but I was enjoying what I saw. I wish the cast and crew much luck and still hope that maybe, just maybe, NBC will wise up and move it over to SyFy where the show belonged in the first place.
Prime-Time America is NOT READY for sci/fi – fantasy. They just aren’t. If they were, we wouldn’t need speciality stations like SyFy, Chiller or any other station that targets certain audiences.
I think that Warehouse 13 would have a better chance in the Sunday slot Merlin holds.
The final episodes of Merlin air next Sunday staring at 7pm on NBC. I say, if you’ve been watching thus far, you should just walk the rest of the road with Merlin and the gang.
