15 TV Ships You Wanted To Happen That Never Did
Arthur and Merlin, Merlin
The BBC’s Merlin, a retelling of the Arthurian legend, went off the air in 2012, but it left a big hole in our hearts, especially since we never saw Arthur and Merlin be anything more than close pals on screen. Though Merlin had knights and castles and a pretty great relationship between Arthur and Guinevere, the show was really about the slowly building relationship between Arthur and Merlin. Like all great ships what started as dislike built slowly to respect then dependence and friendship. The finale itself was a long lingering love letter to the relationship between the two men, even if it did stay strictly platonic on-screen. By the end, we were practically screaming, “Okay, now kiss!” at our screens.
