More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have not watched it, I did see that it was on the other day but passed on it because I don't know how ling it has been on and I really hate getting in the middle of a series and not know what is going on.

So whats it about?

it takes place in the time of Uther Pendragon .  merlin is young and just learning his craft.  in the first two episodes, he meet Arthur and becomes his servant.  magic is outlawed and he's trying to hide his gift as he learns about it.

not a bad show and the casting was good.
