another shot from the area around the speechhouse lake where merlin used to be filmed to get us all in the mood for Merlin cosplay again *____* we'll be in Pierrefonds next Tuesday!!!! (for 4 days or so)
I just have to say this, Merlin could've been Arthur's father. Arthur actually thought he was.
Mary Stewarts Merlin series, five books, Arthurian saga, but she added a fifth book at the last minute so yeah.....that tv show has it wrong. I love Merlin, and hated it when they destroyed him in that tv series. Guinevere was know to be fair haired and eyed and from a faraway land and one of royal blood, not a servant. and there was no "nice" morgana, she became evil at like age fifteen and hated merlin because he wouldn't teach her his awesome magic so she went to dark magic, stuff that one can easily learn, and tries to kill him many times and almost succeeds once. so yeah....that tv series is wayyyyy off. merlin was of royal blood as well, on his mother's side he was the grandson of a lesser king and on his father's...you'd have to read the books, i can't spoil it here, its to big.
the show is just one version, BASED on the saga - which, don't forget is a legend, and has in itself hundreds and hundreds of different theories nobody tells you to watch it if you don't like it, so just don't ^^ I for my part like it because it IS a new spin and tells a different story than all those other movies and books (intertextuality brings you different outlooks on the same thing, after all)

lol yes, i spent a night at a friends and found that she was obsessed with it lol, i never watched it after that lol. not that i ever get time to watch television with the workload of school, house work, meals, kitchen cleaning, animals, farm animals, and younger siblings, lol, but i see your point lol. if i knew nothing about merlin and didn't love those books with my heart and soul, i'd watch it. and it was nicely done! just the facts don't meet my beloved books.
see ^^ it's just a different point of view - and nobody forces you to watch it after all it's the same for me and that weird Star Wars animation show - I love the saga, and read dozens of books, and I hate that TV-show it's first of all not pretty and since it's based on episode 1-3 it just doesn't make a lot of sense and the characters are a bit ooc - I still dunno if I should be looking forward to the new movie either - since it's NOT gonna be the way I will expect and want it to be because I hardly believe they will stick to any of the books that were set after episode 6... so I do get your point ^^
I dunno about that XD never read it but I did see the movie and that alone wasn't good already HAHA oooh, or do you know that BAD american DRAGON BALL MOVIE? ugh - same goes for manga it seems - they can be ruined too LOL
