Judging from some reactions

should I even bother trying to catch up on Merlin at this point?

well I just linked to a Monty Python video so it's really only a semi-spoiler. but. There was awesome. awesome. And yes, the episode had some cons, but the amount of epic won me over.

Well I liked it, but among people on my flist that aren't weirdly obsessed Merlin fans, I seem to be in the minority.

Gawain is sexy. Go for it. (But it's not the show I fell in love with.)

That's one of the reasons I just sort of ... stopped watching. I downloaded them but just couldn't bring myself to watch because I knew it wasn't going to be the campy goodness I'd fallen in love with and I didn't want to be sad. But I do like Gawain, so I'll give it a shot. (Also I'm told there's Kilgarrah awesome so)

I found Kilgharrah's appearance something of a disappointment, actually. Because there was a sad lack of FIREY BREATH OF DOOM.
