Preview Clip for Merlin on NBC

First Look: Merlin

NBC has been trying to tell some big stories this year, but so far, the sweeping tales haven't really stuck with viewers. Crusoe fizzled fast, and Kings — which I thought had so much promise — has been pulled from the schedule completely and won't return for weeks.

So I'm curious to see if NBC can fare better with Merlin, the 13-episode series it's scheduled for this Summer. As the network puts it:

The mythical kingdom of Camelot, in a time before history began, is a fantastical realm of legendary beasts and mysterious people, a dangerous world where magic has been banned by the ruthless tyrant, Uther Pendragon. When Merlin, a young man gifted with extraordinary magical powers, arrives in the kingdom, he quickly makes enemies including the heir to Uther's crown, the headstrong Prince Arthur. But guided by Uther's wise physician Gaius, Merlin is soon using his talents not just to survive but also to unlock Camelot's mystical secrets.

Colin Morgan stars as Merlin, with Bradley James as Prince Arthur and Anthony Head as Uther. Do you think you'll make room for Merlin once most of the regular series are on their Summer vacations? The show premieres Sunday, June 21, and you can check out a couple of scenes from the show if you

I'm not sure if something will change when the show comes on, but according to the Merline/Arthur story i, Merlin practically raises Arthur and is basically Arthur's father. Why are they making Arthur and Merlin enemies? I will probably tune in and see how I like the first couple of episodes.

i feel like summer shows like this are more successful then regular season shows. i feel like we're more open to the unique shows during the summer instead of filling our usual schedule with new things. i was really disappointed by Kings since there was so much hype around it that it just didn't live up to.

I think I might watch it, despite the bad press about it. Me and my hubby are big medieval arts fans. This is like the movie Aragon or something like it. We liked it, but the big press didn't. Oh well, you can't win them all. Oh, yeah, Dungeons&Dragons the movie was pretty good too, but it wasn't well received when it came out.

I'll definitely check it out! Has anyone else read the Merlin books by Mary Stewart? So good!!

I watched the premiere on Aussie TV last night. I'm a big fan or Arthurian lore but I had been fore-warned not to expect any of the more traditional storylines. Keeping in mind that this series is geared towards kids/families, I really enjoyed it. Just forget anything you already know about Arthur and the knights of the round table and I think you'll enjoy this.
