We caught up with the final episode on Sky-Plus tonight. I don’t think anyone could have predicted three-months ago that this new series was going to be as successful as it’s become.
Following-on in roughly the same time-slot on Saturday nights as the disappointing series of Robin Hood, this had a lot to do, to make its mark.
Thirteen episodes later and the series has done really well. I haven’t seen a bad review all season -and that’s unusual these days, where everyone’s a critic (including me!) A combination of well-known actors with a selection of unknown faces has maximised its appeal to a wide age-range and types of audience.
A second series has now been commissioned and it’ll be good to see how the characters develop. The only worry is that we have the next series of Robin Hood to sit-through – where they apparently kill-off the Sheriff and Robin Hood! – before we see Merlin and his spells again!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
