Merlin

I just watched episode 8 of Merlin. This is the episode where Arthur saves the little boy Mordred.

From what I remember of the mythology surrounding Camelot, Mordred is the son of Arthur and Morgan La Fay. It could be that he is the son of Arthur and his sister, in this case perhaps Morgana.

I guess that the story has been rewritten, because it seams impossible that Arthur would have a son.... or would it? What do you think?

Re: Merlin

They've changed quite a bit of a legend. If I remember, Nimueh is the lady of the lake and it is in fact her who gives Arthur Excalibur, not Merlin.
I think there's various forms of the whole legend and they're just picking the best bits of each one...

Re: Merlin

Yes, I guess that there are many versions... I like the version that Danial Jackson tells.. according to him, there is a sword in a stone that Arthur picks up. When he brakes that sword, Merlin takes him to the lake where the lady in the lake gives Arthur Excalibur....

Re: Merlin

And by the way, Michelle Ryan is freakishly beautiful! Perhaps Bionic Woman was not the best show, but I liked it... and I really miss Michelle....

It's nice to see her in Merlin, once in a while.... And after seeing episode 9, I see that she isn't that evil... the king just betrayed her after his wife died, which she could not foresee... she is entitled to revenge...

Or it might be just me, who is in love....... again tongue

Re: Merlin

no, michelle ryan is definitely beautiful smile

Re: Merlin

By the way, does anyone know when Merlin continues?

Re: Merlin

Same time next year... (Start of Nov. 2009) The BBC are always pretty constant with their series.

Re: Merlin

lol, gf was watching merlin for the 1st time. First thing she says is that Merlin has big ears. i lol'd big_smile

also, their plot is untangling in a pretty fast pace. nice.

Re: Merlin

and few things i hate about Merlin. they are using things (technology, etc.) in merlin that was not invented at that time. paper, printing, crossbows, moving from one place to another in extraordinany speed. using clothing, that was hardly worn during that time. ok the list will go on and on. you get my drift.

Re: Merlin

bah...i think this is the one show that gets away with it. it doesn't take itself all that seriously. i somehow think that all the participants are doing this for fun, not trying to give you a headache from trying to make you guess the next plot twist. it's just so friendly and black and white that i can't help liking it.

Re: Merlin

S03E01 was great big_smile

Re: Merlin

Did this show get any good? I stopped watching mid-first season. Should I give it another try?

Re: Merlin

Re: Merlin

Re: Merlin

Maybe I'll give it another go, once I've got nothing else.

Now I remember why I got bored with it! I started to watch it right after I watched Legend of the Seeker and kept comparing the two.

oh yeah.. i just thought about the two. kinda similar tho LotS has more fighting and (a lot) prettier females. I still like both of them. At least that's one show where you know everything is going to turn out just ok smile

And this season has started good for me. Though i think Merlin is putting protecting his secret to ahead and risking too much by not revealing himself to at least some people.

On that note, I'm going to watch s01e01 of boardwalk empire.

Re: Merlin

yes 3x02 was good

+ show spoiler

the attack of the castle actually looked not bad for a TV show and also the "skeletors" looked nice aswell

Re: Merlin

well there are still apsects that drive me insane. like how in the hell is Morgana able to come and go outside the castle as she pleased. no guards at the gates? nobody stopping or questioning?
