It's the story of a mysterious dark-haired boy who ran away from home. He reveals himself to have uncommon abilities, but sometimes longs for the safety of normality. Most of his time is spent with a cavalier older warrior type boy, with whom he has a love-hate relationship filled with mutual mocking and various pranks. They even solve supernatural mysteries and fight evil together, even as the boy struggles with his own internal demons and the need to hold onto the secrets that would make him just one more supernatural target.

This is, surprisingly enough, NOT a show called Supernatural. This is Merlin and I think we can all tell a lot about why fans fall for this show even just in this brief description, right? But let's examine a bit more.

I think Merlin really has three core elements that draw in fans and keep us hooked - otherworldly mytharc and adventure, a burgeoning team dynamic with a great cast, and an archetypal pairing. )

P.S. For any of those who haven't seen the most recent season (Season 3), Arthur is half-naked at some point in basically every episode, so … yeah … DUDE! CATCH UP ALREADY!
