I was so late to the party, but I remember seeing a first glimpse of an episode on a commercial channel here and remember thinking: there is something about this show. I was instantly drawn to it. I believe it was the Colin Morgan Effect. He simply glowed from the inside. He was the soul of the show. I knew I had to order the DVDs and lo and behold there were four seasons of it \o/ watching the fifth season online was painful and the last two episodes drove me to ficdom for support. And 4 years later I still love Merlin the most of all the shows I have ever watched.
So happy Merlin Day
don't ever stop the magick <3
