Merlin is once again taken on the difficult task of keeping Prince Arthur and Camelot safe, while trying to keep his powers a secret. With many more monsters and other adversaries, Merlin and Arthur face even greater obstacles than before. Meanwhile, Lady Morgana is going through changes, and ultimately makes decisions that will lead her down the path of evil.
Colin Morgan returns as the title character Merlin. Growing from the awkward geeky boy, to a more confident young man in this season. Arthur, played by Bradley James, goes through changes himself, as he becomes stronger and more humble. Arthur also experiences the first hint of love blossoming with Guinevere (Angel Coulby). And Morgana (Katie McGrath) begins to show her darker side. Watching these characters develop is a highlight of the season. While I’m not a fan of Angel Coulby’s Guinevere, I thoroughly enjoy the rest of the cast of characters and their interpretations.
Even more exciting than the first season, Merlin is full of magic, adventure, humor, friendship, and romance. Packed with extras, this second season DVD set includes all thirteen episodes as well as behind-the-scenes clips, commentaries, and more. Brilliantly blending humor and fantasy, this is one show I hate to miss. The King Arthur legend was never so much fun.
