I’m trilled to find this series to share.
This is the beginning episode of Merlin…a popular BBC series that went on for five seasons.
Asa Butterfield [super cute here!] makes at least two appearances.
This is a good series, even if it is uneven in some regards.
The CGI is not always great…There is the occasional tacky episode…
…but don’t let any dorky moments fool you…this is still a good quality show…even if it’s not always the deepest.
I’ve read reviewers of this series say that it would likely appeal to Harry Potter fans…Which I think is a fair assessment.
