Re: Merlin Season 2 in the US

One of the problems (other than unsympathetic characters) is that this incarnation goes completely off the deep end when it comes to re-interpreting the Merlin and Arthur characters. Merlin is special because he is old, wise, and knowledgeable, so they made their Merlin young, unwise, and ignorant. Arthur is special because he grew up poor and understands how to treat people well, so they made their Arthur a spoiled rich kid who doesn't know who to treat people.

I realize that there isn't any one way to tell the Camelot story, but this interpretation is a bit of a stretch for even the most forgiving of audiences.
