I don't usually do a review until I've bought the product, but seeing as no one has done one yet, I thought I would, so that those who haven't watched the second half of the second series can see what it's about.

The second half contains 7 episodes and be warned, the tone is a lot darker than than the first half. Where as the first half ended quite lightly (Uther married a *troll* people!) the second half starts with the arrival of the the Witchfinder, in the wonderful form of Charles Dance. And in a show about magical people, a witchfinder can only be trouble, as Merlin finds out. Continuting still on the dark tone is the episode, "Sins of the Father" which challenges the relationship between Uther and his son, Arthur (both of whom gave stellar performances). The Lady of the Lake is also another dark episode, and also gives Merlin his first love story (finally.) Luckily, the episode "Sweet Dreams" offers a reprieve from the darkness, and though the idea of it seems a bit silly (a ruler from another kingdom possessing Arthur to fall in love with the hilarious Lady Vivian), this was one of my favourite episodes this series. Those who are fans of the pairing Arthur and Gwen will love this episode. I always enjoy watching the two together, as their performances when paired together is always electric. The Witch's Quickening and The Fire of Idirsholas are Morgana-centric episodes, which explore her magical abilities, but again these episodes are dark, as too is the explosive series finale, The Last Dragonlord.

I found the second half very emotional indeed. It comes with a tissue warning! Each character was pushed to the brink in some way, and a few times Colin Morgan's performance as Merlin near made me cry with the depth of his emotions.

What I love best about Merlin is that(other than his powers)he's just like everyone else. He makes mistakes, feels self conscious at times and doesn't always know the answer. He's loyal and quirky, which I think makes him not only a likeable character, but one that children can definitely look upto.

Merlin is something that the whole family can watch.

The first half of series 2 featured some brilliant episodes (''Beauty and the Beast'') and some weaker episodes (''The Nightmare Begins''), and the second half continues to have a strong consistent run of episodes.

The Witchfinder 9/10
This episode surprised me, as the preview of the end of episode 6 looked like it was Merlin who was in danger of being executed for the use of magic and enchantments, although it is really Gauis who takes the blame in order to save Merlin's life. This episode has fantastic acting from all the cast, making this a really enjoyable episode.

The Sins of the Father 10/10
This episode features the first appearance of Morgause, and it is clear to see that she is a very powerful character, she shows herself to be extremely skilled at the magical arts and a skilled warrior; she may even be more powerful that Nimueh, the evil sorceress from the first series, and she is one of the extreme few to defeat Arthur Pendragon in a fight. Uther fears that she may know the true circumstances of Arthur's birth, that he was born of magic. This episode has plenty of action, and brilliant acting as per usual. It also has an ending which set up events of the future of the show.

The Lady of the Lake 10/10
Undescribably brilliant. This is an absolutely beautiful episode which took my breath away, with one of the greatest storylines of the show. The acting was really good, especially from Colin Morgan, his performance in this episode was absolutely sensational, and it made this episode in more special. There are dark moments within this episode, elements of humour, but most of all emotional scenes, with backing music that made the scenes even more moving.

Merlin never fails to be brilliant, despite me having watched it about a hundred times before, but these episodes are something very special...
I remember 'The Witchfinder' surprised me when I saw it on air, as the trailer for it on the end of episode six showed Merlin being framed and being led away to be burnt, however, it is really Giaus who is heading for the chopper! I love this episode, the action is fast-paced and the acting is brilliant. 10/10 for this episode.

'The Sins of the Father', is a great episode. I love the fighting between father and son at the end. Again, 10/10.

'The Lady of the Lake', is perhaps my favorite ever episode of Merlin. Merlin falls in love with a druid girl after helping her escape from a bounty hunter. But, because it's Merlin, things don't go to plan. Colin Morgan and Laura Donnelly (Guest Role, Freya) act brilliantly throughout. 10/10.

'Sweet Dreams' is a more comical episode. Arthur is enchanted to fall in love with Vivien (played by the Doctor's Daughter/wife, Georgia Moffett) and Her father declares war! 8/10 for this episode.

'The Witch's Quickening' I find is an easily forgettable episode (correct me if I am wrong, but nicely please!). Mordred sneaks into the castle and Morgana goes with him to a druid camp, but the dragon persuades Merlin he must stop it. 7/10 for this episode.

In 'The Fires of Idrisholas', Morgouse and Morgana put a spell on Camelot so everyone falls asleep. It's up to Merlin and Arthur to defend the land as the Knights of Medhir advance - but they cannot die! Meanwhile, Merlin is faced with the decision that will change Morgana forever....10/10 for this episode.
