The BBC program Merlin will be returning to television screens here on April 2nd. In the US, we’ll see it on the SyFy channel, as NBC dropped the show after its’ first season here. I watched the entire season and found it interesting.
Merlin as a young man, is played by Colin Morgan from co. Armagh, who befriends Arthur, son of Luther Pendragon. Katie McGrath, from Dublin, plays Morgana, who also has magical powers. In the first season, Luther, was against magic and did his best to remove it’s influence from his kingdom. That Merlin and Morgana have magical powers is a secret. Last season, Merlin came to the rescue of Arthur on many occasions and at the conclusion of last season, were more friends than a knight and his servant.
I’m looking forward to seeing how the show progresses this year.
