    It is interesting how perspectives change once the show has progressed and we've gotten the chance to know the characters better. It is also funny to realize how we are able to catch up on new things when we watch the episodes over again.


    People who have decided to join in: 1. boom-moo. 2. Illegalferret. 3. pcdsa. 4. AC. 5. Witchyweasel. 6. Dpebbleson.

    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, I'd like to make clear that it's 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:


    -Magic and spells

    -RIP list-Lives Saved list


    -What Arthur calls Merlin

    -What Merlin calls Arthur


    -Arthur's attributes to becoming the great king of legend


    -Arthur is knocked unconscious or prevented from knowing about Merlin's magic


    -What Uther says about magic-Potions made by Gaius-Gaius's smacks


    -'I have faith Arthur will become a great king' statements


    -Merlin and Great Dragon meetings


    -Great Dragon's riddles


    -Morgana's premonitory dreams


    -Morgana's smirks of doom


    -Arthur and Gwen moments


    -Chestporns/Bodyporns


    -Dungeon time


    -Fashion.

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


    This week, we are rewatching Season 3 Episode 11 'The Sorcerer's Shadow'


    Thank you all and enjoy rewatching

    I love all of Merlin's speeches about Magic in this episode, i feel they really give you an insight in to how he feels and what he goes through being unable to show who he really is.

    We tend to forget how absolutely hard it must be for him most of the time, right?

    Yeah sometimes i forget that it's illegal to do magic in Camelot and how much Merlin is juggling things, lying to people etc just to keep himself alive!
