*Please Note, this is purely a review of THE EPISODES on this DVD, which I will be updating weekly, and then again when I have the genuine article.

MERLIN has come to the darkest part of the legend now, I've noticed, and It's not so much a family show anymore. In my opinion, this is a brilliant thing, as I much prefer the darker episodes to the light-hearted ones in the first series.

ARTHUR'S BANE - PART ONE kicks off the series brilliantly, and it's clear from just the opening two minuets that this series has got a lot, lot darker. However, this does not stop the friendly banter between Merlin and Arthur: "Is there anything you're actually good at?" - "Putting up with you!?" Very nice to see Liam Cunningham as well, after seeing him in Outcast, which I personally thought was very good, but it didn't do too well. Gwen seems to be settling in to the role of Queen very nicely too, even if a bit harsh. The episode, even though I found it slow in parts, was great entertainment, and really made me excited for Part Two. (8/10)

ARTHUR'S BANE - PART TWO continued the story, and let me say, it really delivered. Aithusa, Mordred, Slow-mo sword fights, Morgana going absolutely stark-raving MENTAL and a weird blue thing, I thought it was already a treat, but it was really the last ten minuets that got my brain going "WOW!" I know the writers said Mordred in series 5 would be 'complicated', but who's side is he really on? All I can say is, if it's Morgana's, then Arthur's in deep $#!% (9/10)

THE DEATH SONG OF UTHER PENDRAGON was an episode I had been looking forward to ever since I found out that Anthony Head would be returning as a guest.

Delighted to finally complete my collection of Merlin DVD's that I received quickly and were as described from a seller that I can recommend. I am looking forward to watching them all again, but if I can put the family through (including my Hubby!) the ending again I really do not know. We all cries buckets the first time round. As a person who has a great interest in the Arthurian saga this series was a delight to see, combining stories from old to medieval tales and I thought it was very well done and the acting just got better and better through out. Utterly devastated when it ended. A huge well done to the BBC and all involved.

The series continues and enters a more mature level of drama...The acting is amazing--Colin Morgan and Bradley James shine in this series--they deserve to win a BAFTA for this! The story is closer to the legend than ever before but there are many unexpected twists throughout...It was great to see Angel Coulby with an intersting story line this year. This was just part one of two parts of Merlin's final series...can't wait to see volume 2 and the final installment. I only wish they had continued with this show into a 6th and 7th series. I will miss it terribly when it is gone, but at least I will be able to re-watch it on DVD.

I miss Merlin. There was no sense of this being the final season and no winding down. If anything this final season ratcheted up the anticipation. Having watched it on TV I knew what the ending was going to be but it was wonderful to watch it again. The banter between Arthur and Merlin is cutting or funny. You can tell that Bradley and Colin were really good friends. Morgana is a wicked villain and Katie was having a ball playing her. In fact all the actors are great and you can get a definite sense that they are really enjoying themselves.

Yet another cracking series of Merlin. A pleasant change to more run of the mill tv programmes. The acting is excellent, the backdrops first rate and the story lines gripping. Once again good value and quick service make it an all round good package from Amazon.

We have followed this version of an old tale with great interest. Certainly it had more twists in the story line we thought was possible. The fact that they added to the tale was a very nice surprise. The ending was well done with the final scene created an opportunity for a sequel in a different time setting, well done. Not
Sure tHat the casting was as good as it might have been but it worked. If you have not seen it, do what we did each series we watched over two nights so the plots were fresh. Certainly would recommend it to those that love the Autherian tale.

This is an episode-by-episode review.

Episode 1: Arthur's Bane - Part 1
Not a fantastic start to the series, but still fairly good nevertheless. Three years on from the events of Series 4's end, Arthur has never felt stronger and more at piece with Merlin and Gwen by his side, and his Knights of the Round Table. It was fantastic to see the round table, and it shows just how much Camelot has changed over the years. This episode is very slow at times. And there is another character this series called ''Sefa'', and I was very annoyed how she was another traitor in Camelot, this is getting old now; in Series 3, Morgana was the traitor, in Series 4 it was Agraviane, and now it is her, I was really annoyed at that. The episode had a nice cliffhanger which involved the return of Mordred, falling nicely into the following episode. (7/10)

Episode 2: Arthur's Bane - Part 2
Following a decent build up, the resolution delivers nothing original. We have a nice surprise involving Mordred, which gets us thinking about what the future of Series 5 may hold, and we also have a relation to the events that tock place at the end of Series 4, and events that happened in-between series 4 and 5. However, this episode does not really go anywhere; at the end of the day, there is nothing new in this episode. The ending scene of the episode is one that has happened so many times before, the show is just not moving on. Katie McGrath is not a bad actor, she is outstanding as all the cast are, but she does not play ''evil'' brilliantly, and returned to her over acting pantomime performance this episode. Despite being flawed, this is still a decent episode that is enjoyable at times.
