um, I think its to early for me to say about this show, the first episode ok it didnt wow me, but the relationship between Merlin & Author (which I think will be a big part of this show) is not fully formed yet, that will come in time.
Ditto, and I think the Merlin/Arthur relationship was one of the strongest things about this episode, the banter before their duel was great.
I wasn't wowed, but I mostly enjoyed it. Certainly enough to tune in again and give it a chance.
Wasn't too impressed with Tony Head, but couldn't tell if he was acting his character as sort of underplayed and bored or whether Head himself was underplaying the part and bored.
