I believe in the 'Are you looking forward to Merlin' thread I criticized the casting of Victor Meldrew, Merlin and the corruption of Arthurian legend. I believe I also that I said I was looking forward to the Dragon. Having now actually
seen the program, I would now like to take that all back.
All in all, it passes the time pleasurably enough. Merlin and Richard Wilson medic-guy were the two most easily likable and well acted characters. Gwen had good repport with Merlin. Tony Head seemed bored by magic/kingy scenes, but perked up for family/pretty lady scenes. The dragon was ropey CGI who says the word 'destiny' far too much. They wasn't enough Arthurian legend left to criticize the corruption!
I will continue watching to see where they go with this. My hope is that Morgana's up to something, otherwise I don't see much point in her character.
