The third season of Merlin leaps out of the gate like a thoroughbred, plunging into Arthurian legend and adolescent passions with gusto. It's as if the first two seasons were just treading water; the best of these 13 episodes grapple with the shift in power from the increasingly oblivious Uther Pendragon (Anthony Head of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) to the still headstrong but maturing Arthur (prom-king imperious Bradley James). The linchpin of everything is the young wizard Merlin (geeky dreamboat Colin Morgan), who's stepping out from under the wing of his mentor Gaius (Richard Wilson, One Foot in the Grave) to make his own decisions and flex some magical muscle. Countering Merlin is the duplicitous Morgana (creamy-skinned Katie McGrath), who returns to Camelot as a spy for the openly villainous Morgause (Emilia Fox). These two scheme to destroy Uther for his campaign against magic. There are still stand-alone episodes (several emphasizing humor, such as Gaius being possessed by a goblin or when Arthur is pressured to marry a bewitched princess) and computer-generated beasties (wyverns, manticores, and of course the last dragon, voiced by John Hurt). But the bulk of the season digs into the rapidly developing mythology of Camelot, from Excalibur to the Round Table to Arthur's romance with Guinevere (Angel Coulby), who in this series is maidservant to Morgana. The tone is darker and more dramatic, but the young cast has grown enough to carry it off. The writing is less glib and juvenile, without losing the hyperbolic emotions that drive teenage life. All in all, The Adventures of Merlin is as addictive as ever while growing thematically richer and more emotionally complex. Extras include a making-of documentary, deleted scenes and outtakes, and episode commentaries. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Merlin is back with even more magic, adventure and romance as the young wizard struggles to protect Prince Arthur in the perilous world of Camelot. While battling deadly assassins, mystical monsters and the most powerful sorcerers Camelot has ever seen, Merlin must work harder than ever to conceal his unique abilities while King Uther redoubles his war against magic. Featuring exciting new villains, white-knuckle stunt sequences, and spectacular CGI monsters, Merlin season three is more thrilling than ever.

I found the first 2 seasons on netflix and loved watching them. I was lucky to have found such an entrancing arthur series. I have always been a fan of Boorman's Excalibur and have been disappointed with most shows when held up to the Boorman standard. I did find this series exceeded all my expectations and actually was better than Excalibur in almost all aspects. The only thing that gives Excalibur an "edge" is it is a single movie and this Merlin series is more like an ongoing daytime drama. I could see all the aspects of Merlin made into a three movie trilogy and blow away Lord of the Rings, but one can only hope. All SEASONS of MERLIN are available on ITUNES in the USA. You can rent or buy them there. If you plan to rent I suggest watching the first two seasons on netflix. Please give me a positive rating if this helped you, thanks :D

Season 3 is a lot darker than the previous 2 & we join it when Morgana has been missing for a year & Uther is distraught at her disappearence little knowing what will follow during the series. When she is found wandering in the forest Merlin & Gaius become suspicious at her behaviour & realise that she has become a witch who will use her powers for evil.

The first couple of episodes deal with Morgana trying to send Uther mad using magic with the help of her sister Morgause. As usual there is a comedy element with a goblin inhabiting Gaius's body who then moves around the court moving from one body to another causing mayhem. Merlin is also shown what will happen if he does not stop Morgana, & is torn between trying to protect Arthur from all the usual dangers he faces & now the prospect of evil coming from within the castle itself. Morgana turns on Guinevere trying to ruin her relationship with Arthur, which makes Merlin have to use his magic to protect them both from never seeing each other again, & for the first time you see the face of Merlin that we know from the legend with a long flowing white beard. You also meet Gwaine for the first time who is a bit wild but useful with a sword in a fight! 'The Fisher King' gives Merlin a phile of water from the Lake of Avalon telling him that he will know when to use it, which becomes apparent at the end of the series. The series finale is absolutely fabulous with the drama of Uther finding out what Morgana has been doing & Arthur trying to protect the kingdom from her. This is also where we see Lancelot again & meet Sir Percival for the first time. You then have the beginning of the legend of Arthur, Excalibur & The Knights of the Round Table.

This series just gets better and better with every season. The writing, acting,and directing are very good, and the plots for the third season are more exciting. The characters are becoming more caught up in the intrigue of the Arthurian legend. Merlin and Arthur are on the path that will lead to the fulfillment of their destinies. The growing maturity of both characters is a delight and the strong friendship that they have developed now adds to the great plot twists in every episode. The addition of Gwain, Elyan, and Lancelot to the story (as well as the other new regulars) makes this show all the more interesting to watch...I can't wait for season 4!!!
