    Lancelot and Guinevere, The Fires of Idirsholas and The Last Dragonlord were the only episodes that I thought were fantastic. The Beauty and the Beast (both episodes), The Curse of Cornelius Sigan and Sweet Dreams were all unremakable.

    Onto series three! :cookie:
    They were great and some of the best episodes of merlin I have ever seen.

    I disagree. It is a matter of opinion. You are welcome to yours as I am welcome to mine. My opinion is that they were unnessasary and childish. I am not saying they were awful however added little to the development of the story lines/charechters. Allthogh I would say that The Curse of Cornelius Sigan was by far the best of the three I mentioned.

    You seem like you focus on character development in plots-I usually sideline it for comedy,action,storyline.

    Perhaps, I do also focus of the action though. I like the quieter, more subtle comedy between Arthur ad Merlin that is often portrayed.

    I thought The Curse of Cornelius Sigan was extremely action packed and had loads of monstrous bats-I think merlin needs more magical creatures in the show.

    Hmn when I say action I mean more of the fighting kind. :horse:

    I'm afraid we might have to agree to differ, the amount there is now is enough.

    Easily the best series. I don't think series four was as good as three because Morgana didn't get to interact with the others as much and there was less Uther. Loved the opening and finale two parters. Also "the eye of the phoniex" is arguably the best stand alone episode ever.

    Also it had the best trailer.

    I can never decide what my faviourte series was, it's usally the last one I watched last; so it would be two but as I have mentioned only a few episodes are remakarbe. One marks the beggining of an amazing series and I love it for that (and the episode The Labyrinth of Gedref may be my overall favorite episode). Series 2, meh. Series 3: first of the "darker series" and I agree with what you said about it completely! With series 4 you have the knights which I really like.....undecided.

    Wonder what series 5 will be like. And do you know if there is going to be a movie?

    Fighting can get repetitive and boring and I thought the Series 4 finale was too similar to the Series 3 finale.

    For me depends on how far. Couple of years only, fine. More than that, what the freck?

    Also hope that it's not going to be, oh we missed the reveal. Do wish they would get around to it. Hopefully in the opening two partner. Would leave a great dynamic for the rest of the series with Arthur coming to terms with it.

    Magic Wolves sounds great because I love magical creatures-lets hope a few people succumb to their teeth and are killed.

    A Merlin thread! Yay!

    I'd heard of Merlin before Season 4, my friends going on about it and I watched the first couple of episodes during a 'Merlin Drinking Game'. We got mighty drunk, mighty quickly.

    But it was Season 4 that really got me into it, seeing an ad for the first episode on BBC. Now, I'm a hardcore Merlin fan ;D

    But oooo there has to be a magic reveal in Season 5. There has to be. :woo:

    I had heard that the time jump is around 5 years. If you look at the age difference between Modred (old) and then new Modred this should give you an idea of how much of a time jump there is. This also apparently the last series for Morgana. I am hoping series 5 might not be the end. Even if their might be a Merlin movie.

    Hmn, that sounds....interesting...maybe in a couple of years (if you got that drunk I best wait till I am a few years older ahaha) this could be a way to get my friends more interested in Merlin, they all dispise it!

    Okay what? Time jump? I didn't know about this? What? What? That'll be cool though!

    And the end of Morgana? That sucks. Katie McGrath is so cool and plays Morgana so well.

    And a Merlin movie? I really need to catch up with the latest gossip.

    I'll try to find the game! It'll be great to take to uni with me actually. It was massive. Drink everytime merlin saves arthur, everytime merlin uses magic, everytime arthur is oblivious to magic, everytime the dragon talks about destiny, everyime gaius does his eyebrow, everytime arthur tells merlin to shut up...

    The list just went on and on. We were drinking almost every minute, and we weren't even playing with all the rules because we couldn't remember them all. Haha.

    Edit: We'd also been drinking a little before hand as it was New Years eve.

    All you do is put [ spoiler ] and [ /spoiler ] around the text you want to hide, obviously taking out the spaces!

    Here goes:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    - 24-year-old Alexander Vlahos now takes the role of the Druid destined to be responsible for Arthur’s death.
    - Gwen will have a more prominent role as Arthur's confidant.
    - No love interest for Merlin this season.An older and wiser Merlin will struggle between making some very difficult decisions and having to tread a very careful path between what is good and what is bad. (as always hu?)
    - There’s a big Elyan story coming up – their sibling relationship is tested, but it’s not quite how you might imagine it. - said by two of the main actors
    - their is a good chance Freya will return. However as their is no love interest...hmn....
    - Merlin will have a new role in Camelot - many people think this will be as an advisor
    - the last episode has been planned however it might not be in series 5
    - Queen Anis will return
    - story lines will reflect legend
    - They'll play with the idea of the two battling dragons, the red one and the white one, with their own twist.
    - Modred has a job to do
    - Katie on Morgana having any chance of redemption before the show's finale: "Well, if you know the legend, you know that at the end of the day Morgana is the hero! Morgana heals Arthur's wounds and takes him off to Albion where he's waiting to be the wonderful future king. So really Arthur's not actually the hero, it's Morgana! So I'm assuming she'll have to have redemption, yeah!"
    - Merlin seems to be wearing his same old servant clothes in eps 1 and 2
    - Morgana's new outfits are more sumptuous, less "she's living in a hovel" and more sort of "medieval-couture
    - "I literally couldn't ache anymore if yesterday I spent 5 hours in the gym. Instead I had a sword fight in a forrest dressed as a saxon" - one the knights
    - Their will be a snow scene with magic wolves!


    I am sure their are more.
