Merlin (UK)

Merlin, a boy on the cusp of adulthood, arrives in Camelot hoping to find an use for the strange metaphysical powers he has possessed before he could even talk. Instead, he learns that King Uther, ruler of Camelot, despises magic and has instituted a kingdom-wide ban on any practice of sorcery under penalty of death. Audiences experience a series of magical adventures as they follow the unlikely friendship of a would-be wizard and the future King.

Merlin

I pretty much like all kind of shows except for Sci-fi and fantasy shows, and my favorite shows tend to be gritty and realistic like "The Wire", "Oz", "Rescue Me", etc ... I do enjoy different shows as well like "Brothers & Sisters", "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", "Desperate Housewives" and many others.

I watched "Doctor Who" not knowing it was a Sci-Fi show, and I enjoyed it a lot, and that's how I got to know "Torchwood" which I also really like.

But I still found it odd that I liked the show "Merlin" which is complete fantasy. Not only is it the type of show that I don't normally watch, it is also kid friendly which is also another kind that I tend to avoid.
If you haven't watched it yet and want to find a new show, check it out. It's very entertaining.

I think a lot of sci-fi and fantasy shows tend to be too "out there" for people that don't like the the genres unless the writers stick to a more drama based theme that keeps things closer to reality. I am a complete sci-fi and fantasy geek but I respect that people have differences of opinion. Merlin seems to be one of those shows that puts some magical fantasy driven elements into a friendship drama, and not the other way around, so that many people can enjoy the story. I wouldn't be opposed to the show if the writers added more crazy stuff to the fantasy part of the plot but, as it is now, I think the show is great!
