4.0 out of 5 stars "He is Your Destiny, and he is Your Doom..." March 13, 2012
This is going to a rather odd review considering that season four of "Merlin" has the very best and worst that the show has to offer. On the one hand, it has some of the most sophisticated storylines, the highest production values and the strongest performances from its young cast that have thus far featured on the show. There is also far less filler (a great improvement on the last season, which seemed to be composed almost entirely of padding) and greater care taken with continuity and overarching plot-threads. On the other hand, it still suffers from the usual problems: a lack of meaningful character development, the irritating marginalization of its two female characters, and its stubborn refusal to let Merlin finally reveal his magical abilities to Arthur.

To recap this review in a nutshell: the first half of this season is the best that "Merlin" has ever been - but the second half falls apart, leading to an entirely lackluster finale. If you're not in the mood to read any further, consider that my conclusive statement on series four.

But last season ended on a high note what with Prince Arthur assembling his most trusted knights and winning back Camelot from his half-sister's control. With Morgana defeated and King Uther in a state of deep depression over his daughter's betrayal, series four opens a year later with Arthur in firm control of the kingdom. In this he's helped by a new arrival: his uncle Agravaine, who establishes himself as the young prince's closest advisor.

Obviously, things are not going to be smooth-sailing for long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Merlin, Arthur & the Sword in the Stone March 15, 2012
Length: 3:13 Mins
This video is taken from the last episode of the season when Merlin tells Arthur he needs to have belief in himself to remove the Sword in the Stone.

5.0 out of 5 stars TYSM BBC! April 24, 2012
By The Wiz
Attention U.S. television producers; The BBC proves once again that Yes, it is possible to make a show that doesn't include tons of sex innuendo, bleeped or un-bleeped profanity, graphic, criminal violence, degrading and obnoxious humor and yet remain utterly appealing to adults. What Merlin does have is heroes and villains, magic and monsters, epic battles, exciting adventures... in other words just a great fantasy show set in an Arthurian milieu (kinda like Harry Potter meets Excalibur).

Currently in its fourth season, this series isn't losing an ounce of momentum, on the contrary it has even greater potential for future seasons, particularly when you realize that the setting thus far has been limited to a relatively small geographical sphere. Not to mention that these characters have the potential to become more interesting as they continue to age which is the exact opposite of most series that attempt to keep their main stars perpetually young. Oh and ya, this show actually has main characters that are over the age of forty (gasp). Speaking of the characters, there's chemistry here, which is absolutely fundamental to a great TV show and made evident as the relationships continue to develop and/or change.

Wasn't sure how the writers would handle the continuing themes of: "Merlin-in-the-box", Arthur & Gwen secret romance, Camelot power shift or Morgana as the arch-villain (doing a fabulous job of being beautifully creepy by the way) but so far it continues to be creatively believable while maintaining continuity with previous seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Merlin Season 4: The Darkest One Yet (SPOILERS) January 1, 2012
Merlin Season 4 is the darkest one yet, & some of the characters we know will not live to see Season 5!

In the first 2 episodes of the season Morgana takes revenge on Merlin, Arthur & Camelot for killing Morgause by summoning the Callieach to tear open the veil between the worlds, the Dorocha, hellish creatures pour forth killing anyone whom they touch. With Uther a shadow of his former self, it falls to Arthur & his Knights to protect the Kingdom. It will take more than swords to vanquish their enemy this time & when Merlin finds out that it will entail someone making the Ultimate Sacrifice he is determined that this will be him fulfilling his destiny, but who will actually make the Ultimate Sacrifice? Arthur celebrates his birthday with Uther who is now in stronger spirits & they have a travelling circus that visits the castle but someone has come with them who wishes to do harm to Arthur, Uther comes to his son's rescue when tragedy strikes, can Merlin save Uther in time? Julius Borden arrives in Camelot looking for the 3rd part of the Triskellion key which lays in the vault under the castle which will lead him to the tomb of Ashkanar & the last Dragon's egg, will Merlin be able to use his powers as the Last Dragon Lord to protect Aithusa from harm. Arthur kills a rival King, Caerleon, in cold blood after the battle they have just fought but was it Arthur who wanted to do it or was it the pressure exerted on him by his uncle Lord Agravaine & what will Caerleon's widow Queen Annis do now.

Merlin Season 4 for U.S. market.
Agreed. It seems to be taking longer to release season 4 for the US market than for seasons 1-3. Hope to see it here soon.
