Re: Merlin getting better and better

Transformers can't be a good movie because of Michael Bay.

They don't have time.

I have been waiting 5 years for Morganna to do it with either Arthur or Merlin, and be just as awesome as the episodes where Hotlips and Hawkeye had their love affair away from the camp.

And I dearly wanted to see Arthur grow a beard.

Re: Merlin getting better and better

I'm predicting Morgana and Gwen buy the farm by the end. Since Arthur didn't die in the legends for many years, they're either going to bring forward his attrition with Mordred or have a big showdown followed by a prediction.

Re: Merlin getting better and better

They're all over 30 given the time line of the show. That's reeeeeally old by 6th century standards.

Gaius is in his 70s clearly, but Uthur could have been in his mid thirties when the series started since 21st century preservatives really wouldn't have existed back then.

Re: Merlin getting better and better

An Arthurian series set in the time of the 6th century historical Arthur - or the closest history gets to him - could be interesting (and was, as Arthur of the Britons), but it's got nothing to do with the Camelot myths. So black characters in Merlin has never been a problem.
The multi-racial world of the 2006-2009 Robin Hood was more dubious, but not entirely ahistorical. Compared with that series's greater problems - in terms of history, or basic quality until a new writing team came in for season 3 - it was a minor niggle.
