No merlin fans out there then? Eagerly anticipating series 5! Can never take my eyes off sir percivals arms!

halfthesize Sat 06-Oct-12 21:10:13

Really loved tonights episode, all those scenes with shirtless mengrin

LetUsPrey Sat 06-Oct-12 21:12:30

May I refer the MNers who enjoy the physical aspects of the show to my earlier link wink

Coffeeformeplease Sat 06-Oct-12 21:15:24

aha. I know now why DD (13) likes it, and all her class mates. And there was I, thinking she's not at all interested in the opposite sex (apart from Johnny Depp-until I told her how old he is, she's gone off him since) They have a sleepover today at DD's friend with 6 girls, and watched it. I will be teasing her tomorrow about the half naked men wink

Can I just say that I'm watching this on Sky+ and am just getting towards the end. Cave scene? Sleeping knights? Hellooooooooo!

<worries that pretence of watching it for the storylines may be slipping>

LetUsPrey. I love you. Thank you.

moonshine I've just had my DD2(11) drooling over 'hunky' (Percival) and DH saying he fancies the treasonous maid.
Me, I fancy Gwaine. DD1(14) she claims to be above such nonsense, she never admits to fancying anyone.wink

fruityoatybar Sat 06-Oct-12 21:43:57

Letuspray I thank you..

RedBlanket Sat 06-Oct-12 21:49:32

So Morgana has got herself an underground lair filled with half naked fit blokes breaking rocks? In your face Gwen!

What was the shiny silver alien all about?

fruityoatybar Sat 06-Oct-12 21:52:11

Sod the alien - was far too buisy looking at Gwaine..

cocolepew Sat 06-Oct-12 21:53:29

There was an alien? wink

DD1 is 14 and "her favourite knight is Gwaine" translated that means she fancies him.
DH can't decide between Gwen and Morganna, but Morganna is a bit in the lead.

I'm still lusting after Lancelot.

DD2 is 11 and she likes the horses

BigBroomstickBIWI Sat 06-Oct-12 21:56:44

Not homoerotic at all!

I love Merlin. Even DH, who never misses an opportunity to ridicule it, sat and watched the whole thing with me!

NimChimpsky Sat 06-Oct-12 21:59:07

I like Merlin. The show's okay too. wink

WhereMyMilk Sat 06-Oct-12 22:07:53

Letusprey you are now my favourite MNer! grin

I am so in love with Arthur who is just lickable, and Gwain-ALL that hair flicking!

RedBlanket Sat 06-Oct-12 22:16:13

Fruity - me too, that's why I've no idea what it was all about. wink

MeFour Sat 06-Oct-12 22:26:02

Yes I miss Lancelot
Because i think merlin needs an ally of course no other reason at all, ahem

EugenesAxe Sat 06-Oct-12 22:29:48

Gwaine... yes he's nice. That Sir Percival reminds me of... arrrghh! Shite I can't think. No wait I can! The guy who plays the roving reporter on Drop The Dead Donkey. Just looked it up - Damien, played by Stephen Tomkinson. He's getting on a bit now but in his DDTD years, yes.

I loved Arthur's face during jugglegate. DH didn't get it was Mordred at all but I remembered the bad 'why did you let him go?!' storyline from yonks ago as soon as we saw that vision.

Dunno why I saw the need to big myself up with that last statement.

MissEleanorLavish Sat 06-Oct-12 22:34:24

DS desperate to watch it so forced myself to watch it tonight. What have I been missing? Who's the hotty with the hair flick that ended up with the alien? (No idea what the story was about.....)

LetUsPrey Sat 06-Oct-12 23:02:01

<twirls> They are pretty aren't they, those brave Knights of Camelot?

Not entirely sure what the blue alieny thing was all about and not sure I liked it. Thought I'd stumbled into an episode of the X-Files but without the shoulder pads.

MeFour Sat 06-Oct-12 23:03:46

Grown up mordred casting was good except I think he's changed eye colour?

It was Gawain with the alien

MissEleanorLavish Sat 06-Oct-12 23:16:30

Thank you ladies - oh those knights are oh so pretty. <scuttles off to add merlin DVDs to DS's Christmas list!>

LetUsPrey Sat 06-Oct-12 23:24:28

For those of you with DC <cough> who would be interested in watching some earlier series of Merlin, I would suggest you they watch the CBBC channel tomorrow at 4.30pm.

MissEleanorLavish Sun 07-Oct-12 00:04:01

<sets Sky+> thank you smile

moonshine Sun 07-Oct-12 00:06:40

<programmes Sky + for all past and future episodes>

Follow @merlinofficial on Twitter - they are shameless in promoting what I people want - sample tweets tonight:

'We would not be surprised if the words 'shirtless' and 'knights' started trending tonight'

'Noise of torso alarm going off'

'Most knights have swords but Percival has a couple of massive guns'

FairPhyllis Sun 07-Oct-12 02:17:36

Thank God Merlin is back. I'm so sad this is the last season.

Percival's armour always makes me laugh. Especially as he is still wearing it in the snow. I love the way the levels of shirtlessness have stepped up season by season - ALL the knights with no shirts on now. I fully expect them to be running around in the nudd by the end of the season.

Arthur must have some sort of low-level brain injury by now from all the times he's been knocked out so Merlin can do some magic without him seeing.

Gwen seems to have Taken a Level in Badass now she is Queen. I like it!

I think I preferred Mordred as a spooky kid. At least Morgana seems to have stopped doing the Evil Smirk at the camera.
