I admit it. I fell into a fandom. OK, this isn’t exactly a new place for me to be, considering I taught myself HTML in the late 90s by creating a website devoted to the young Elvis Presley (whose posters still decorate our pool room), and was definitely a TwiMom in Twilight’s heyday. Still, it’s been a while since I’ve fallen as hard for a show as I did for the BBC’s Merlin. Not only are the actors (particularly the adorable Colin Morgan) outstanding, but the weaving of Arthurian legends with an admittedly family friendly but rather CW-esque (read: teenage heart throb) approach hooked me from the start. I love me some Arthurian legends.
I got so inspired that I started a huge Merlin Pinterest board and even wrote three blog posts (originally on my personal blog) about the show. Be aware that they do contain spoilers!
I’ve blathered so much about this show on Facebook and Twitter that several of my friends confessed they checked it out merely because of my fervor – and then they fell in love with it, too. If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? All five seasons are available to stream via Netflix (in the US, at least), so settle in for a binge fest! And let me know what you think.
