    Welcome to the rewatching of Merlin 2011!


    Between now and September we all will be rewatching ALL 36 episodes! This will serve 2 purposes 1. it gives us a weekly Merlin fix and 2. allowing us an opportunity to watch how characters and the series has progressed, as well as picking up on anything we might have missed!


    People who have decided to join in:


    Episode Rewatching Thread wrote: 1. boom-moo. 2. Illegalferret. 3. pcdsa. 4. AC. 5. Witchyweasel. 6. zeencat. 7. cassi. 8. Dpebbleson. 9. exactimondi. 10. E(vo)ric. 11. Bridgess. 12. D-syfer.


    Rules are as follows:


    1. We are getting started on the first Saturday of 2011 and a new thread will be open every following Saturday. We are following the order in the list above to open threads and we are selecting the episodes in sequential order, so all 39 episodes of the three series will be rewatched. Double-parter episodes will be rewatched together, so the rewatching will start on Saturday January 1st and end in Saturday September 3rd.


    2. Everyone opening a rewatching thread should copy and paste the information in this entry (Introduction, List of participants and Rules) in the first post. That way, keeping track of the turns and our progress will be easier and also having the rules at hand will be useful for those who might decided to join us half way through.



    3. Everyone opening a rewatching thread is responsible for reminding the next person in the list to do the same the following Saturday (sending a pm on Friday should do it)


    4. Anyone not being able to open a thread on a particular Saturday can swap turns with the next person in the list (or anyone else) as long as they keep track of their respective turns.


    5. Everyone opening a rewatching thread has to propose a new topic in the "The Best and Worst of Merlin" thread.



    6. Agreed that we all sometimes just don't have the time or the inclination to leave comments, so it is not compulsory to rewatch and/or comment on every single episode.


    7.Anyone is most welcome to join at any time. Boom-moo will make sure to add new members to the list.


    8. If you don't own the DVDs or the episodes, don't let that stop you from joining. Feel free to pm Boom-moo so she can give you a link to a site where to watch them online


    9. Should anyone have any doubt, do not hesitate to pm Boom-moo.


    10.Failure to repeatedly comply with the rules will allow the editor to remove participants from the list.







    As we rewatch, we can work on filling the following lists:



    -Arthur's attributes to becoming the great king of legend (current list can be found at the beginning of the Arthur thread)



    -'What Arthur and Merlin call each other' list (current list can be found at the beginning of the Merlin & Arthur thread).



    -All the times Arthur has been conveniently knocked unconscious or that something 'strange' has happened around him which has prevented him from figuring out for himself that Merlin has magic.



    -All the times Merlin uses magic + whether his eyes turn gold and whether he incants.



    -A record of all the times Uther says something about magic.



    -A record of all the potions made by Gaius to date.



    -A count of all the times Gwen says "I have faith in Arthur" (or something similar)



    -A count of all the times Merlin says "I have faith in Arthur" (or something similar)



    -A record of all encounters between Merlin and the Dragon.



    -Morgana's smirks of doom.



    -Also, we can keep adding funny arguments to the "Things we've learnt watching Merlin" thread.



    This week we are rewatching series 1 episode 5 'Lancelot'!



    Enjoy!

    Congrats on yet another, and not at all pointless, contribution to this forum, Weasel!

    As for my part of the job, I'm glad to inform you that in this episode there are no Smirks of Doom by Morgana. No precognitive dreams either.

    I'd like to do the Great Dragon's riddles (none in this episode). I usually look out for the names Merlin and Arthur call each other and Arthur-Guinevere moments which I'm happy to share contributing on.

    This is the first time Arthur gets knocked unconscious so Merlin can perform his magic. Unfortunately Lancelot finds out about Merlin before Arthur

    No Arthur-Guinevere moments but when asked to choose between Arthur and Lancelot, Guinevere says she doesn't have to and never will...

    I've thought of another list - those who are locked up in the palace dungeons - Lancelot this episode. Previous episodes 1.01 Merlin, 1.03 Guinevere, 1.04 Arthur. Actually I think all the main cast members have been locked up at some point!

    So Greensward and Willowdale villages closer to Camelot, which is to the south of a valley. Lancelot finds out about Merlin's magic, 2nd person to know after Gaius (and of course the Dragon and Hunith).

    Hi All I know it's my turn to create the thread for ep 6 but I've tried four times today and everytime the response from tv.com just fails. I'll try again in a few hours. I haven't forgotten I am on it. TTFN X

    OK, I'm miles behind on the rewatch, but here is my contribution: RIP: Some villagers from Queenswood and Willowdale (both ridiculous village names if you ask me) probably some knights of Camelot and most importantly, the Griffin.

    Pornlist: Fleeting Lancelot footporn. Bit of Merlin neckporn (if you squint...), bit of Arlot open shirt extravaganza for the purpose of "basic training" and one hell of an Adam's apple shot for Arthur.

    I had forgotten how boring I find this episode. Bleurgh. Did anyone else notice that Gwen's so good at sewing that she can take all the measurements and remember them all without writing them down? Tsk tsk... That being said, Gwen looks much much much nicer than in S3... Can we get back to her plainer, nicer looks? Oh, and I for one will happily take the measurements of all the knights of Camelot from now on

    I think Uther's got the most critical line in the whole episode: "How can you trust him when he's lied to you..." True of Lancelot, but foreshadowing the reveal so much...

    And I love how Arthur tries to play the tough guy in those early episodes... He doesn't fake it so much later on.
