Merlin - A Show That Surprised Me

So there's this guy . . . His name is Anthony Head. I fell in love with him in Buffy the Vampire Slayer WAY back when. Recently, however, he showed back up on my TV in a show called Merlin.

Merlin looked like one of those shows that I wouldn't be interested in. I only turned it on because of the genius that is Tony Head. Was I ever surprised when I discovered what a good show it actually is!.

I love every one of the characters in a different way. (Except for the Dragon. He annoys me to no end!)

There are some shows that make it very difficult for me to pick a favorite character (because they're all great) and this is one of them.

I do have a soft spot for Morgana. First, she reminds me of me. She isn't afraid to speak her mind. I also feel bad for her. The poor thing must be terrified. No wonder she goes off the deep end! I'm thinking I know how Uther may meet his end . . .

I have another soft spot for Gwen. Just because she' awesome. Very excited about her and Arthur. I wish their relationship would develop already!

Arthur I love because I can see a future King in him. He has intelligence and ruling smarts that he gets from his Dad but he also has compassion and understanding. He'll be a great King.

Uther Pendragon . . . Oh, Uther, how conflicted you make me. Some of my favorite and my least favorite scenes involve this jerk. Hehe. I love love his scenes with Arthur. I love that you can see how much he adores his son. I also HATE the way he treats Morgana (Although, you have to admit, she does ask for it most of the time). Also, he is freakin' creepy scary! (Once again, Morgana must just be terrified of him.) But even with all my love/hate for Uther his scenes will always make me happiest, because there is never going to be a time that I can't adore Anthony Head. (Even if he is scaring the crap out of me at the time!)

I know I didn't mention Merlin or Gaius but I love them both too! Everyone is awesome!
