Merlin was a 4 hour TV movie aired on NBC about the classic story of King Arthur, but from the perspective of Merlin. It was actually surprisingly well done and they got a fairly original story out of a classic tale. They did of course pull the old sacrificial damsel to the stereotypical dragon trick, but surprisingly Merlin didn't kill the dragon (well, realistically it's not surprising, but in a human-centric fairy tale it is), he just bound him down with magic long enough to save the damsel.
