Oh I am such a sucker for swash and buckle - truly I am my mother's daughter. So you can imagine that I was well reliving the past watching Merlin last night which has just finished its second episode. Yes, they have ALREADY started bumping it around the schedules but I do truly like it!
Yes, it is VERY silly, and yes they have taken horrific liberties with the 'text': but if it is fun I (almost, mostly) do not care enough to complain. I grew up on TH White, and Morte D'Arthur, and, yes, Richard Harris in Camelot. What can I say? I'm at least prepared for texts to take some liberties as long as they convince me of the narrative's internal coherence.
This will certainly keep me amused for the next few weeks.
