These days I find that I watch shows once and then move on. But there’s a handful of shows that I find I can (and often do) go back and re-watch from the start. Merlin is one of these shows. It starts out as a fun family show but it turns into a mature drama that often goes to hilarious and dark places (sometimes at the same time).
So strap yourself in for the adventure. And don’t be fooled by the small number of reasons to watch. These reasons are legit.
Darcy Vs. Thornton – it’s the ultimate showdown between Fitzwilliam Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and John Thornton from Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South.
Although there are different versions of each character, this showdown is specific to Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy from the 1995 BBC mini series of Pride and Prejudice and Richard Armitage’s Mr Thornton from the 2004 BBC mini series of North & South.
