Merlin meme!  
I love this show so much! Although I'm disheartened to see some folk leave the fandom due to recent storytelling blunders on the part of the PTBs. You have to remember IT'S A KIDDIE SHOW!!! Fanon will fix the rest. *sigh* The life of a fangirl/boy is tough.

What Merlin character am I most like?

I'm curious now! What storytelling blunders are these? Personally, although I know how much it differs from the legends, I'm just enjoying what they're doing. It's not history after all--just ancient fiction, lol. Or is there something else??

Ah, some are saying how one episode is more than sufficient to carry the simultaneous awesomeness of Morgana AND Gwen. I can see that point. Regulating on female role to the background whilst the other is front and center. C'mon, we are so passed that age of storytelling. Others are kvetching about the rushed-ness of plot for plots sake and throwing key character/relationship moments to the side for SPESHAL EFFECTS! I also agree with that one. Some are complaining about the mishandling of the shippery tension between Morgana/Merlin/Arthur/Gwen, hell take your pick of ship or OT4/5/6/7/8 whatevers and someone is complaining about it. And yet more are sounding their dissatisfaction of the general feel of the show. How it's being bogged down by repetitive themes. To which I say: IT'S A KIDDIE SHOW!!! The reason fandom was made was to correct your own private canon. SO WRITE!!! Oh, fandom. You are a fickle fickle creature.
