Chapter 37 – the rant

20 10 2008

Bradley is pretty excited about this holiday.

In my mind the unofficial “first phase” of this story is drawing to a close.  Not that that really means very much, but it helps me keep track of how the plot is developing.


Saturday’s Merlin contained a familiar face – Santiago Cabrera, a.k.a. Isaac Mendez from Heroes.  At one point we see him slumped against the corner of a room, and I almost expected him to start injecting Heroin and painting the future.  Except that this is a family show, and that it would have been a complete anachronism.

LG15: the resistance Chapter 5 was a bit disappointing after last week’s, but at least Maggie got a chance to be amazing.  The FBI guys don’t seem very competant though.

Oh, first phase! So, it’s going to take an unexpected turn? You’ve left out some of the first characters for a while now, and have me wondering what’s happened to them. Good writer, you!
Merlin sounds good, really. I’ve always liked decent Arthurian tales, even when they do take liberties. I guess I should check out LG15…

That might depend on what you were expecting. Yeah, some characters haven’t been around for a while. They were there for a reason though, so rest assured I haven’t forgotten them! Why, thank you very much! 😀

Merlin is good. It’s a bit daft at times, but most things I watch seem to be a bit daft. It’s odd though. It’s not so much a retelling of the Arthurian legend as a new story that draws heavily on the Arthurian legend. If you enjoyed other BBC dramas of this nature, I’m sure you’ll like it.

As for LG15: TR, it’s very strange, but I’d definitely recommend checking it out. Each episode is only about 8-12 minutes long, it’s produced on a very low budget, there’s no fourth wall, and it’s all available free online!
