What Was Great About Merlin
Merlin taught me a lot about writing and characterization. This series is truly unique in that it's centered around the relationship of Merlin and Arthur and not some angsty love triangle. Yes, there is love and relationships, but that takes a second seat to the magic and the bond that develops between Merlin and Arthur.
My favorite character was Gaius.
My least favorite character was Morgana.
I also liked Gwen.
She was smart and strong, and not your typical Guinevere. When I first saw her in this I thought, "that's not what I pictured Gwen to look like." But, then as I watched it I grew to love her so much she was the only person who could be Gwen in my eyes. I think the last season did her character injustice because she was Morgana's puppet for so many episodes I started not to like her. I kept thinking- would Gwen really let Morgana convince her Arthur was the enemy? Really??? But, the scene where Arthur brings her back in the lake was sooooo romantic and made those episodes worth it.
I will really miss this series, and I know I'll be watching it all over again in the future.
