  1. I used to watch it, but since your D&D episodes, I found a local group I play with on Sundays. Now I either DVR Merlin or watch it on Hulu.

  2. In the Uk so we had it first for a change. I’m big on my arthurian legend and I like it, smallville like yes, but its a new interpretation. Any arthur is good arthur.

  3. Again a UK based guy so I’ve seen it all, not bad, took a while to really get into it’s stride but it filled the teatime gap of Doctor Who better than that Robin Hood trite.

  4. I was in the UK working when it came out so I also got to see it long before it showed up in the US but I still enjoy watching it when it comes on.

  5. I’ve been watching it on hulu and enjoying it. I’m a fan of the Arthurian legends (Pendragon RPG anyone?) and as long as you approach it as a reinterpretation you should find it a fun watch.

  6. I’ve been watching it in the US, that is good that it took a while to get into its stride I’ve felt it is a slow builder. And the Smallville like comment is right on, but I agree it’s better than nothing. I’m curious to see where it goes so i’m on for all board for all of season 1.

    So, I have this friend whose fiancee has tastes I privately mock with no remorse or mercy. Like, she watches “Ghost Whisperer”, and “American Idol”, and ANYthing on The Disney Channel…. And she was the first person who mentioned this show to me, so I have avoided it like the plague (bubonic variant). It might actually be a good program, and I enjoy a good arthurian story as much as the next geek, but I will _never_ grant this show the boon of my viewing.

  8. Thanks to Hulu I’ve been watching this – not bad, the acting is decent and it’s an interesting take on the Arthurian legend….plus quite frankly I’d watch Anthony Head in anything, I’ve had a huge crush on him ever since I first saw Giles :-)
