... Question: Why in the world did Syfy cancel Merlin? It was a really great program. But the series finale sucked!!! King Arthur dead!!?? No way! Please bring it back. — Ethelyn

Matt Roush: For a change, the blame lies not with the network. This wasn't Syfy's decision, or even its show. (It was a British import.) It was the producers' call to end Merlin after five seasons, and to honor the legend by not giving it a happy ending. (Excalibur wasn't exactly a joy ride either, and perhaps the existence of a classic tome titled Le Morte d'Arthur might have given you a clue of what to expect.)
