Given how much more awesome Anthony Head is than the actual protagonists, I think they should just drop the whole Merlin and Arthur thing and make a prequel series about Uther just murdering the fuck out of everyone.
It would be nice to know more about Uther's rich past.

Bob and I were talking about this elsewhere. It was good to see Uther stripped of the personal charm that let him get away with his despotism when he was alive. Bob pointed out that Head really is a pretty good actor, since he made this transition seamlessly.

Re: Merlin Series 5

^Yeah, I still think it would have been interesting to see what Camelot was like before Uther/when Uther came to the throne etc, but I think that time has passed now.

Re: Merlin Series 5

You say it's past time for a time travel episode, but I say its PAST TIME for a time travel episode.

This all started because of personal loss. Magic was marvellous, until Uthur made a deal without reading the contract and suddenly his wife is dead. Then he spends 20 years building pyres to get over the fact he fucked up.

He transitioned his guilt into a heady body count upward towards 6 digits.

A time travel episode would give Arthur and Merlin a choice, keep everything as it always has been preserving the timeline, or sacrifice Arthur to side step all that ethnic cleansing by getting inbetween Uthur and Nimueh.

What would have been the negative consequences if Ygraine lived?

The hilarious bit is that Lancelot is reincarnated as a girl and still goes after Guinevere sans penis. He's really angry about being being a woman in the future. Really really angry.
Almost. It's Tristan (of Tristan & Isolde fame) who reincarnates as a woman in Camelot 3000. And he's very not happy about it.

Re: Merlin Series 5

Someone stole my copy 20 years ago, but my actual rooted memories of reading Camelot 3000 are from much earlier, when I was about ten.

I say stole.

But is it really stealing when a friend borrows something and never gives it back?

Yes.

Yes it is.
