I was honestly okay with the ending. Given the state of the world and perhaps the limitations of what can be fed to and received by the audience at this time. What a tear-jerker. Honestly... I feel like writers, in their humanity, found themselves in too deep. Like to be able to write something so epic and ecstatic as what was to come when Magic flowed freely in Camelot.... was too much for the writers to handle or too much for the audience at this time to "handle" or both.
In addition, I think the actors were done. The interviews with the actors always speak of 5 seasons,...
Well, we are in the fourth season of Merlin. For many of us there have been ups and downs, interesting episodes and great scenes as well as not so good episodes and cringe worthy scenes but that’s the way with television shows.

Analysis of Roman grave reveals that York was a multicultural society

It will not be because of her title and their duties, but out of their respect and love for Guinevere herself.
I have been familiar with the Arthurian Legend since a very young age (I was 11 years). I got to the Arthurian Legend by reading the poem Gawain and the Green Knight. Because I wanted to know more about him I read the Arthurian Legend the Welsh version - in which he has a more expand story line . As I read the Welsh version of the Arthurian Legend I came across the fair goddess-queen named Gwenhwyfar (or at least its Anglicized form of 'Guinevere'). I immediately liked her. I enjoyed reading about her as this noble, fair queen who represented the authority of Arthur's reign. The spirit of...
