“In two words?”
—Arthur and Merlin
Hidupku itu kayak serentetan petualangan dari satu fandom ke fandom lain; Heroes, supernatural, smallville, glee, Merlin, THG, semuanya dah.
Dan kali ini, Merlin. Dulu waktu masih ditayangin di Indosiar setengah enam malem aku selalu lihat gak pernah absen, bahkan sholat maghribpun sengaja dicepetin demi nonton Merlin (bukan hal bagus) sampai tiba-tiba dipotong oleh Indosiar entah karena alasan apa.
Dan aku kehilangan jejak. Nyari di internet dimana bisa lihat Merlin tetep gak ketemu, akhirnya saya ikhlaskan Merlin. Sampai suatu hari orang baik hati entah siapa mengupload semua episode Merlin ke youtube. Ternyata di British sono Merlin udah sampai season 5 sementara aku baru lihat episode 1.
Jadilah akhir-akhir ini aku ngejar 4 season dari Merlin. Hari yang paling ditunggu akhir-akhir ini adalah hari minggu, karena si pengupload baru bisa upload tiap hari minggu.
Oke, jadi Merlin di sini menceritakan, well, Merlin. Dari Arthurian legend yang sangat terkenal di Inggris, tentang Merlin, penyihir yang selalu setia di sisi Arthur. Dari dulu aku udah suka sama segala hal berbau Camelot dan Melin ini menampilkan sisi lain dari Camelot, melalui mata pemuda bernama Merlin. Emang agak berbeda dari sejarah yang diceritakan yaitu Merlin jauh lebih tua dari Arthur di seri ini malah jadi lebih muda dari Arthur tapi tetep keren! the other reason I found this series interesting is, well, my precious little snowflake Collin Morgan 😀 and let me mention my new cutie little pie for being Mordred in this season.
Ini dia karakter-karakter Merlin:
I always love Uther. Despite his hates toward magic, sorcerer and any kind of that. He was just a lovely father who want the best for his son. Uther was a lonely King because lost his wife and sadly he blame his son for the death of his wife. I’m glad I will able to see him in this season, eventhough as a ghost Uther.
I used to love Morgana, then I hate her in the middle of the series for being evil. Now, on the first season 5 episodes, I feel sorry for her. She just so lonely and everyone betrayed her, even Modred that cutie little pie, ok from now on I’m gonna call Modred cutie little pie. I can’t even think that Modred stabbed Morgana in front of Arthur. And Morgana staring at him like, “FML no one cares.”
Gwen, the once and future Queen. I love the fact that she’s black in this series. I don’t want to sound racist but I think that would be cool if on the Arthurian Legend there’re some black women in the palace. But damn girl, at first I thought Gwen fell in love with Merlin and I was like, “What the? You supposed to be the most amazing, gorgeous, perfect Queen of the history! Not with this servant, my precious little snowflake!” And finally she married Arthur and my heart was full of happiness again.
Should I described him? The most famous King in the Arthurian history, well even the name Arthurian. Arthur is the stupid one who never realized that his servant has the most powerfull magic in the world, and his servant can juggling. I love the friendship between Arthur and Merlin. Arthur will spare Camelot into two pieces to find Merlin.
My cutie little pie. He’s evil, said some strange dying druid to Merlin. His destiny is to kill Arthur. The heck is that. Mordred is my cutie little pie. Even when he was a kid and now turns into a damn fine guy. I know I will feel so sad when he kill Arthur, some day, some episode, but now let me enjoy the moment of grey cutie little pie Mordred who became a Camelot Knight and sit on those round table.
Precious little snowflake. His sarcastic humour, his loyalty, his magic, his face, his FACE! The way he talk, use magic, save Arthur, everything. Melin always lost the one he loves the most. Freya, Dad, Lancelot. Lanceloott T_T . Merlin has to keep his magic gift as a secret because Camelot hate sorcerer, well actually because Uther hates sorcerer. Merlin, I know is lonely to be powerfull than any man you know, and have to live like a shadow. To be special and act like a foll.
And my recap for season 5 episode 1 and 2:
Merlin : hey, sup Arthur, look I can juggling. And I have magic!
Merlin : Arthur I have saved your live since the pilot episode for the 1867554569 times and I can juggling
Merlin : Arthur look I can talk with dragon GRAWWWWHHUOOOAARGHHHH
Arthur : Yeah, yeah.
Arthur : hey Mordred my man, you saved my neck from pathetic Morgana. You wana be a knight? Being knight is cool man.
Mordred : ….
Merlin : ….
Arthur :Merlin, where is my sword? Give me my sword!
