Hello there! Today I thought I’d do a post on Merlin, a BBC TV show based on Arthurian legend. I’m currently about 3/4 of the way through Season 3. 

While Merlin can get a little repetitive, I really enjoy it. It’s one of my favourite shows, and I’m sad that I’m more than halfway through already. 

So far my favourite characters are the Lady Morgana, and Morgause, her half-sister. I can’t decide whether I like Morgana as an evil or good character better, though I think she has much more potential as an evil one than a good one. Though she isn’t very good at killing people. She’s almost stabbed Uther twice, almost gotten Arthur to give up his rights to the throne, almost sapped Arthur’s life force, etc. But she hasn’t killed anyone yet!

The Lady Morgana, being awesome.

As for Morgause, just the fact that she’s a lady knight who beat Prince Arthur in a battle endears her to me.

Gaius is pretty great, as well, and Arthur and Merlin’s banter makes me laugh, every time. I’m not such a big fan of Gwen, definitely not Uther, and Nimueh was just okay, in my opinion. I did really like Freya though!

So far, I think Season 3 has been my favourite. My favourite episode is the Season 2 episode where Morgause is first introduced, “The Sins of the Father.” That or the first two Season 3 episodes, “The Tears of Uther Pendragon” parts 1 and 2. 

Well, that’s all I have time for today. Goodbye!
