Anyone else seen this show yet? Probably people in England have seen it. I watched a few online episodes of it and its really good.

NBC bought the rights to it also and it should be on in 09 sometime. If you get a chance, watch it.

NBC was going to put it on mid-season, but for some reason they have bumped it, and now it's not expected until next season.

Well that sucks.

I've been watching it, it's pretty good. My partner hates it and constantly chunters about the bad acting and poor production values, but if you suspend belief for 50 minutes it's quite an enjoyable fantasy romp. My main complaint is it's been going on too long now - most UK series are only about 6 to 8 episodes, but this is more like a US series, and must've been on for about 3 months now, with no sign of it ending. And the stories are quite samey every week.

It's also kind of weird to see Merlin and Arthur the same age.... I'm not really up on Arthurian Legend, but I'm used to seeing Merlin as an old long-bearded wizard with Arthur as a young boy.

All the UK shows I have seen have been about 13 episodes long for a season. Primeval, Dr. Who Torchwood, Robin Hood and MI-5
