    He seems more positive above G/L romance in the 2.04 audio commentary than anything he has said on A/G. I think he tweeted (is that correct word?) 3.10 was the episode he liked least of S3.

    He was asked all the time about it and yeah, he didn't hesitate replying that 2x10 wasn't his favourite.

    I don't think he is adverse at all to playing the role, it is just that the romance side is the one he likes the less. And I don't think there's anything wrong about it, but he should be more objective when stating his opinion in interviews.

    You sent me one just with my text. Open mine, click reply, delete my text, write yours and hit send. Not working?

    It didn't work, snet819, just replied back, I can't figure out what you are doing wrong. How about trying to send me a brand new pm, without replying to mine? I don't need a reply at all, I'd just like for you to be able to send pms, that's all.

    I got your pm this time

    My name doesn't appear in the menu because the menu only lists those users you have previously friended (by going to their profile and clicking in "follow". To go to someone's profile you just have to click on their nickname).

    You can type the name or copy and paste, you did fine

    Yet another question Merlin fans. Lots of you keep talking about 5 series as if it's written in stone. I mean have Johnny or Julian written it in stone or something...That is to say have either of them said for sure 5 and done?

    They've basically said time and time again that the series is mapped out for 5 years. I don't know whether they would want to take it forward if it remained as successful as it currently is, though. Maybe BM will have thoughts on that

    See here for a formal definition, but, basically, very few people were freemen in the middle ages. Most people were villeins or serfs or some sort, which meant they worked for and under a king/noble and paid taxes.


    Being a freeman gives Gaius a high social status than that he previously enjoyed. It shows his respectability.

    Whoa...so are Gwen and Merlin freemen serfs villeins or what? I mean Merlin came from Cenred's territory so he should not have been allowed to leave without permission unless he is a freeman. Gwen's father was a blacksmith...a property owner I guess, so she is a freeman as well. But on the other hand they seem to work for no wages...cause Arthur said Merlin has no money. But Gwen did...she gave Gaius a coin...or does this mean she is a serf because she works for Morgana as a duty but is a seamstress by trade...very confused now.

    Knowing TPTB's disregard for accuracy, it doesn't need to make any sense

    I wonder if Tom's house was his own seeing as Arthur told Gwen that her house was hers for life after Tom was killed. Shouldn't that have been the case anyway after her father died and the hose rightfully passed on to her? On the other hand, when Alice returns to Camelot her house is right there, still unoccupied.

    Also Gwen is supposed to be the best seamstress in Camelot, so I guess she works a lot on that apart from tending to Morgana. She made Lancelot's outfit overnight after all.

    So this is one of those area's like (why was it ok for Morgause to murder like what...6-7 knights and not be beheaded but Gwaine calling one an arrogant thug is enough for execution), where it's better not to ask? LOL.

    Are you an Americam Boom-moo?
