Merlin!!! I'm so glad I found you again finally!
By Jennifer Reid
First off, I want to point out my 5 star rating is strictly for Merlin alone. I'd been trying to find Merlin for such a long time on DVD because my old copy I record on VHS when the movie first aired on TV was worn down and badly in need of replacing. I'm glad I found it finally and it was well worth the money. I had such a great time watching the movie again after all these years. While the effects are kind of corny now, the story is still amazing and the actors did such a good job in their parts.
I had never seen the Jason and the Argonauts one (although I do know the story). I watched it also and was pretty disappointed with it. If I had to rate it all on it's own I'd give it probably only a 2-3 star rating. The main actor looked stoned or something for the full 3 hours and the overall acting and dialog just didn't feel right. I felt myself getting pretty bored watching this one. So, like I said, my rating of 5 stars is strictly for Merlin and it was the only reason I bought this DVD set.

1998 Merlin TV Version with Sam Neill, Martin Short, etc.
By A Mother of Two
Bought this for the 1998 Merlin version with Sam Neill, Martin Short, Helena Bonham Carter, etc. to replace my old vhs copy. It was a rather corny 2-nighter tv movie, especially compared to CGI effects nowadays, but I've always liked this storyline and acting but couldn't find a reasonable dvd copy until now. DVD works fine so thanks for keeping my memories alive. Haven't watched the other movie yet but will eventually.

Awesome Double Feature
By Rainey Dawn
Merlin is the reason I got this set, I've seen it and loved it. I'm looking forward to viewing this version of Jason & The Argonauts, I've read good reviews on the film (mini-series) and I loved the original film and from the previews this version looks like a film I will enjoy.
I popped in the Merlin disc to quickly check out the video/sound qualities for this review and they are really good. I'll very much enjoy watching these films with the quality of the audio and video.
