So I have begun to watch these two shows. Merlin and Legend of the Seeker.
Merlin is pretty amusing, a few laughs and pleasant english, since the actors are from britain and not the US :). I havn’t seen that much of it yet but I get how the series is built up and how each episode will be. In rough terms of course. It’s based on episodes with a thin red thread between each part. I would pretty much compare it to “Smallville” but in a mideaval setting instead of the present.
Legend of the Seeker… I have only seen the first two episodes and I’m not sure! It seems to have a more connected story that runs through the series since they actually are going to travel to something and do something about something. Not as in Merlin where they stay at Camelot and battle what ever comes their way. Merlin is more defence while Legend of the Seeker is offence!
The acting isn’t that bad, but not great. And I got really annoyed when they did something unforgivable… This girl is dressed in white the first 40 minutes. Her dress gets dirty and torn and all that. She gets new clothes. Now more usable clothing, pants and a tunic in leather, all in brown colors. She carries that until the last sequence of the episode, then she is back in her white dress! What The Frak. She just rode off in her brown clothes! So I’m guessing they didn’t think of what clothes she was wearing when they filmed that part of the episode. Cause it can’t have been on purpose. And if it was I want to hit something. Since a girl fighting bad guys in a white dress with cleavage looks better then a girl fighting bad guys in brown “man” clothes without cleavage…
I’m going to continue watching these two series and see how they grow. If they grow. I like these fantasy-type-shows so I’m having high hopes 🙂
