    There are so many good examples in 'Things we've learnt' thread, so I went on a random page, and singled out Trish's insight:

    "Warlocks should not agree to save someone no matter the cost and then they don't like the cost!!!"

    Just because this is the only time we have seen a topless Merlin, I would consider this a Best.


    And even though I am not a huge Lancelot fan, I think this is a good choice for Best, also.




    Worst would be in agreement with FA and AC.

    Best: Arthu'ts armporn in 2x13 The Last Dragonlord. Not the best screencap but I can't find the good one in my albums Love the pumped up veins in the blue light on the "night" shot.

    Photobucket

    I'm with ForeverArwen94 as for the worst.

    I also forgot to say that I'm not a huge fan of those random-Bradley-topless scenes they started throwing in at the beginning of series two, if only because they didn't seem to advance the plot at all. It's like the producers were just saying "Look! Bradley chestporn!"

    I don't mind the chest displays, random and all, but the whole pants off is really to me since it's not a must that comes for the role but gratuitous eye candy. My guess is that Bradley mustn't be to impressed either.

    I like that particular moment you posted because when he is standing up putting the keys in the cabinet you can see the nice curve drawing his back from top to bottom... gorgeous!

    Sorry that this is a little bit late...


    We all love our Merlin characters, but there are some that, despite our love for them, are more fun to mock and tease than others. So, I thought it'd be funny to discuss theBest/Worst Character to Mock.

    Fun


    Great Dragon, for his cryptic replies; Dragoon for his facial expressions; King Uther with the troll consort that fooled him with magic. I never saw him the same way after


    Less fun


    Arthur for being too much of a skeptic to question how come he gets knocked out so often, or how objects conveniently fall on his enemies in a fight or how he managed to kill the Great Dragon without the aid of a dragonlord, etc. all this, when Merlin's around.

    Best character to mock, the guards of Camelot! Their ability to guard the castle, dungeons and fight off attackers is frankly priceless

    Best character to mock ....how about George the replacement servant from 4x06; I just love how he was so prim and proper, the exact opposite of our beloved Merlin.

    I've mentioned this once in the Tavern, but my sister and I love mocking Morgana and Morgause... not only for their smirking but also for their continuous use of "sister." Even my brother joins in when my sister and I ominously hiss "Sista!" back and forth.

    I've always thought this exactly


    The category for this week will be Best/Worst Family Moment. (i.e. moments of any type between any character and a member of their immediate family).

    Worst: Morgause using Morgana in 2x12 which lead to almost getting the later killed.
    Best: A tie between Arthur/Ygraine and Merlin/Balinor.

    I love the Arthur/Uther moment when Uther has been stabbed to death in 4x03, I find it extremely poignant. And I agree with Merlin/Balinor.

    Best family moments for me are Arthur/Ygraine in 2x08, Uther/Arthur in 4x03, Merlin/Hunith around the camp fire in 2x10 and Merlin/Balinor in 2x12.

    Worst would be in 4x06 Arthur/Agravaine about how the bandits knew the route. Agravaine, the master of manipulation.
