So, I'm only four episodes into season 2, and I have to say, as much as I'm enjoying this show, I'm not really digging how they're handling the romance in it this season. Last season I thought it was cute--tentative flirting, banter, awkward moments--all good stuff there. Now it just seems very abrupt and over the top. Especially Lancelot. All his conversations are so dramatic and flowery they make me cringe.

Also, I sometimes think the score is a little over-dramatic, especially when coupled with excessive slow motion scenes.

All this is balanced by several good things though: the banter scenes between Arthur and Merlin (there needs to be more!), the strong friendship between Morgana and Gwen, and just Morgana's story line in general--her unsteady relationship with Uther, her developing powers, the weird/creepy bond thingy she has going on with Mordred. I'm interested in how this is going to pan out.

These things make the annoying romance stuff a little easier to deal with.
