I was wary about this given the Beb's ridiculous plan to reinvent every major character as a 16 year old
and given how poor Robin Hood was and the fact that it was such a radical reinvention.
I was pleasantly surprised. It isn't brilliant, and to be honest I don't think it'll become brilliant- but it was entertaining, and the chemistry/banter between Merlin and Athur was nicely done, if that remains the focus then I think it might succeed. Hopefully every episode won't revolve around Merlin having to save Arthur from 'plot of the week'
