Hey, guys

I feel like complaining about Merlin, but I'm lazy. What are your thoughts on Merlin? I think it's really fucking stupid but I watch it whenever I have nothing better to do on a Saturday even though it makes me want to throw every single character in it out of a window.

I don't think that it's sooo bad but I definitely watch it just for fun. I try to ignore all the historically/legend incorrect things - I've just finished a book about Merlin and whenever they use something from the book but totally in a different way, I suffer for a while. I take the legend etc. part of it as a lousy excuse for a fantasy series, only enjoying the series itself because it's actually fun. But those trollish (yes, note the troll D:) episodes are killing me.

Yeah, I feel you.
It's probably my personal feeling but I don't really see Uther as a bad character - everybody keeps telling us what terrible things he's done but I've never actually seen him being completely EVIL.
Um, Morgana. I don't know. Sure, the villains are very flat and I really have to agree with everything you've said. But on the other hand - I personally never quite liked any of the female characters in this show :P But yeah, you're definitely right.

I only watched the first few episodes, but it felt like a bog standard US highschool drama in robes and chain mail. There's the nerd and the jock and the pretty girl who doesn't realise she's pretty and it all made me want to go somewhere where the TV wasn't.
