Movies and TV : BBC Fantasy Drama : The Adventures of Merlin

Merlin and King Arthur ~ Continue the adventures?

So glad to be in the modern age of DVDs and video streaming. Ten years ago a TV show about a wizard (warlock, sorcerer) was aired and I only saw the first episode. Even though I liked what I saw, for some reason I never got a chance to finish viewing the rest of the episodes. Time passed and I forgot about it until I found the complete series offered by a popular video streaming service. Did I watch you ask? I have watched 5 seasons twice already! Can’t help it! I love it!

♦ ♦ ♦

The Adventures of Merlin was a very popular BBC fantasy-adventure drama family-friendly television series which aired from 2008 to 2012.

It’s 2018, the members of the cast went on to do other things (Merlin Cast: Where Are They Now?) but I wish they would have plucked these characters from “the land of myth and the time of magic” when King Arthur and Merlin together set the course for the great kingdom of Camelot and transplant them into the 21th century and of course, put them in New York! Even though it’s British folklore.

(Not my idea. I got the idea from a book. “Knight Life” by Peter David.)

Still! I would love to see this same cast of characters ~ at least the actors and actresses who played Merlin, Arthur, Gaius, Guinevere, Morgana, and the knights (especially Lancelot, Gwaine and Percival) ~ assembled together again to recreate their onscreen magic.

I watched this series and grew very fond of the characters. It’s rare that I want characters from historical fiction placed in a different time period but I would love to see them again in a current setting and experience the chemistry between them again.

Some people want Arthur to rise again but during the same time frame.

I want him to rise again in the 21st century.

Have you ever watched The Adventures of Merlin ? If not, you’ve missed a treat. It is delightful family-friendly entertainment, worth countless bowls of popcorn.

What do you think of a TV series, set in the 21st century, revolving around these characters in a modern setting? (It doesn’t have to be New York.)

  1. I was a big fan of The Adventures of Merlin and watched every show. I love to watch any fantasy or supernatural series, and there have certainly been some good ones. I hope we will see some more in the future.
