    When your ears prick every time you hear the words 'Merlin' or 'Excalibur', even when you're watching an old episode of QI and it's actually a reference to types of parsnip.

    ... when you realize your weekend away won't let you discuss the episode as it airs. Oh well.

    I saw that episode as well last night! I was like omg Merlin has a parsnip named after him!


    On a separate note, You know you're addicted to Merlin when you get really excited when you discover that Morgana is quite comely found on Chocolate frog cards in the world of Harry Potter. (See p77 in The Philosopher's Stone)

    When you start building a 'Rising Sun Tavern' in The Sims2 and you're wondering how you can make a customised Leonette outfit. Hmmm

    You know you're addicted to Merlin when Amazon send you an email full of Merlin dvd's because they know you keep looking at them on their site!

    When you are upset and annoyed that you are going away on a 4 week holiday to Europe from Australia, 'cause you leave 7 hours before episode 10, which will be amazing and you have no way to watch it (since your friend isnt a fan and wouldnt understand you spending all your time trying to watch it at internet cafes).


    Then 2 weeks later when you are over the moon that you mis-calculated and actually leave just before episode 11 which is much more acceptable to wait to see.


    note- i travelled there earlier this year so the excitment of the holiday doesnt outway the excitment of Merlin!

    When you read Harry Potter, get to the part where someone says "Merlin's pants!", think Whaat, Merlin's pants? Wait, what colour are they again? Then go and look it up. xD

    ... when you will go through great lengths just to find an internet connection and get the latest in everything Merlin and the latest happenings in this forum.

    (Even if they take my WiFi away, nothing can stop me. Muwahahaha!)
