This week’s Merlin
is called “Lamia,” so I assume it’s about a small city in Greece that we had to pass through on the way from Athens to my dad’s village.
However this turns out to be slightly inaccurate, and it’s actually about a sort of siren girl and occasional octopus creature who dazzles men and puts them into a coma. Gwen actually gets stuff to do this week, and even more surprisingly so does Sir Percival. I mean, stuff other than the usual “having arms” which is his primary function. Also, one of the Avelines from Bread
is in it. To be honest it’s hard to remember much else about the episode because of the following:SOSSERY! count
It took eight episodes but we got there in the end. I actually cheered out loud. Especially since, clearly having missed it as much as the rest of us, Dame Richard Wilson gives it a lot of gusto even by his standards.GAYWATCH!
The Lamia seduces all men but not women or Merlin, because Merlin is different in some way that Gwen can’t quite figure out. Heh.
