I woke up this morning and I realized that (for me) this is a brilliant, amazing, spectacular day! One year ago on this date I watched my first ever Merlin episode.
"How small you are for such a great destiny."
"I LOVE HIM!!!!" By the end of episode one I was a hopeless Merkin.
To celebrate this MOMENTOUS day, I have decided to be very fangirly. Meaning embarrassingly fangirly. I can barely believe I even am this fangirly. Great, now I'm stalling. But really, this is rather shocking to say the least. I found out that I have extreme giddiness when it comes to Merlin. Okay, enough Stalling. Here you go;
I have also decided to begin watching Merlin again - right from the beginning. I plan to do so with a red scarf about my neck and a book of magic in my hand. I intend to learn at least two spells. I was going to wear a fezz but Arthur smacked me with a towel and told me I could not celebrate one TV show with the logo of another - especially not A logo from that ridiculous Doctor Who. I was so insulted I almost slapped him. Maybe, just to make him angry I'll wear a bow tie.
Merlin and Gwen approve. *smirk*
For any of you Merkins out there here are five Nerd Facts on "Merlin"
1) The name "Emerys" is welsh for "immortal"or "eternal"
2) thirty-seven actors in "Merlin" have played in "Doctor Who." (Challenge - how many can you name?)
3) The scene where Arthur pulls the sword from the stone was filmed just before midnight on Christmas Eve.
4) Morgana (Katie Mcgrath) is naturally blonde and had to dye her hair every three weeks when filming "Merlin"
5) Colin Morgan has a brother Neil (29) who starred as an extra in many Merlin episodes!
Do any of you have some fun facts to share??

Go forth, brave Merkins, and answer without fear!
Before I'd go, I'm going to be very rant-like and fangirlishly angry.
BBC has this thing with killing all the good characters. For example;
Merlin had a good villain appear in Season Two.... but he died. Season three had ONE good villain. Some idiot decided it was a brilliant idea to get rid of him. And he was a good villain! I really liked him, he had a queer sense of honor and knew when to back off. I liked hating him. Then he was gone. and I was like -
In wonderful Season 4 a character usually died every other episode. Sometime you were like "Eh, who cares?" other times you were like "WHAT??? but but... he was cool."
So to be very frank, Merlin is one of my very favorite TV shows - it is right up there with Doctor Who and Sherlock. It is brilliant and I love it!
