So Merlin this week...

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmeh.

I knew it'd be insta-romance but even then I'd hoped the girl in question would have, oh I don't know - personality. She just sat there quivering and scared and woe-is-me. Why would someone fall in love with that? (before you answer this question, I'm going to answer it later. Wait.) As someone said in a different review, girls are failing in this series. They're either troubled, weak, or evil. None of them are actually steadfast and strong with a good head on their shoulders. They're not noble - they always need to be saved! And though I know that the damsel in distress thing fits the era, they're messing with the legend why not give a girl some sass - whilst keeping her likeable which requires good casting, not just writing - and complex like the males.

That being said the episode still managed to make me emotional, helped by my feeling desperately sorry for Melin (kudos to Colin Morgan. Boi can ACT.) The most touching moments for me were when Freya was a cat. Then I could relate to her, it had more personality than she did. I'm blaming casting more than writing - if they wanted her to be haunted then she'd have to look more haunted than they got.

I understand Merlin was fond of the idea of sharing his secrets with someone like him, that there's this sort of.. understanding between magical people and those he knows of - Morgana for example, are risky to confide in as they're higher up and close to Uther. BUT - he should not have fallen in love with her. I don't think it was right to portray it as love, but maybe friendship? Friendship could have worked. I'm all for giving Merlin some action but meeting, falling for, saving, then laying to rest a love all in one episode sort of cheapens it. If you want to give Merlin some hardcore storylines about love, SPACE IT OUT. Spread it across the series so it packs a more emotional punch!

That being said when Merlin faltered setting the boat alight I did choke up. Kudos Mr Morgan.

And if we don't get Arthur/Merlin POWERS OH NOES soon I'm gonna be annoyed. This is what the series is about. Not silly contained in one epsiode blahs.

As for next week - I HATE Georgia Moffett - not because she's dating David Tennant I couldn't care less (but I do think he could do better) but because she was shit in Doctor's Daughter, was very poor in that, and now she's in everything. Do not want.

I really don't know enough about Arthurian legend to know what the deal behind Morgause/Morgana/Arthur is. But despite that, I realise that even if I DID know, the BBC would mix it all up anyway cause Gwen was never a servant etc etc! So!



Also - was it just me who thought Morgause was totally ripped off Eowyn? Y/N?

Florence & The Machine.... I'm not a fan of most of her songs that I've heard around recently and I know she's been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, but the song I heard on TV the other night refuses to get out of my mind.
"Drumming" aka "Drumming Song" is awesome! I implore you to listen to it. The video is... weird. And she looks like a man in a frock sometimes. I'm pretty sure she's going for a Kate Bush style of thing but... she can't dance. She has no grace at all. BUT the song is good!!!



Lyrics if you should be so inclinedCollapse )

I like the winter months, I'm not sure why. It's nothing to do with the scenery or general shortness of the days... I just like it. One thing I cannot abide, however, is colds. Not cold weather or deep-freezes, but those horrid, disgusting head colds that sneak up on you when you think your foolish yet genius idea to brave the winter weather without your bobble hat was missed by Mr Frost. Suddenly you wake up and your head is in a vice, your nose has been transformed into a constantly-dripping tap and your eyes either won't open or focus as if you've had seven beers in your sleep.

The rest of your body is fine. But the heavy lead thing which is usually known as your face is pulling your spine into a curve as you hunch around the house trying to find the last pristine tissue, lest you risk using an already-ragged entrail of a kleenex you dessimated yesterday with your sneezing fit. Once the supply is used (the supply you criminally forgot to keep up because of how you'd managed without the cold of death so far) you then have to impress yourself on the unfortunate healthy members of the public who give you a wide, generous berth the moment they hear your rasping breaths and groans of misery because your teeth are hurting worse than your neck.

I never thought looking like an infected Lurch would be a boon, but the crowds of Hanley just spread wide to give me a path today. I returned home to spread Vix vaporub on my throat, under my nose, and around my nostrils which is now stinging me to fuck. Hopefully I will be better with a nice lie-in, accompanied by television viewing of House, Heroes, and something else beginning with H...
