It’s Merlin. No, not the red handheld game you had when you were a kid. (If you don’t get that reference, ask your parents.) It’s from the BBC. And here’s what they have to say for themselves.
Experience an imaginative twist on the rise of the infamous Arthurian sorcerer as the BBC introduces Merlin: The Complete First Season on DVD. Having premiered on NBC June 2009, the epic primetime drama was lauded by The Washington Post as “fun family fare” and hailed by The New York Post as “a smartly done retelling of the legend of King Arthur.” Loaded with hours of adventure and magic, Merlin is produced by the award-winning team of Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy (Hex, Sugar Rush) and features a powerful ensemble cast including BAFTA Award-winner Richard Wilson (One Foot in the Grave, Demons), Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Persuasion) and John Hurt (Hellboy, Harry Potter). The series also guest stars Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman, Doctor Who) and Eve Myles (Torchwood, Little Dorrit). This must-own 5-disc set contains all 13 episodes from the engrossing series along with over 2 hours of special features including two making-of featurettes, video diaries, photo galleries and more.
