Merlin (BBC): Series 5

New thread for a new season - Merlin, the BBC's notoriously slashy / homoerotic re-imagining of Arthurian legend, premieres its fifth series tonight (Saturday Oct. 6, 2012) in the UK (SyFy will carry the show in the US in January, but resourceful US viewers can find streaming and download links when each UK episode airs). Merlin (Colin Morgan) is still a young, closeted all-powerful wizard who has to hide his abilities from his friend and ruler King Arthur (Bradley James). Castle servant Gwen (Angel Coulby) is now the queen, and Arthur's half-sister Morgana (Katie McGrath) is still off somewhere plotting to take down the kingdom. Apparently this season marks the return of Mordred as a young man, and lays the groundwork for a battle between Morgana and Merlin and the eventual fall of Camelot. Watch it for the married couple banter between Merlin and Arthur, watch it for Colin Morgan's acting, or watch it for the loads of buff, pretty men (including Knights of the Round Gwaine and Percival) baring their arms and chests, inducing fits by the Bradley James Anti-Shirtless Troll. Season 5 Trailer at link.
