Five Favourite Pilot Episodes
The immediate butting of heads between Arthur and Merlin was the best! Back then the biggest worry was keeping Arthur alive and making sure he didn’t find out that Merlin had magic…well, I guess that’s STILL the biggest worry. Hm.
I’ve probably seen this more than any other pilot. I was so excited to watch this show. So weird. The introduction to all the characters… I wish all of the episodes were as good as this episode. I mean, it fell back on a lot of clichés, but I don’t think that’s a problem for a pilot episode. For the rest of a series, however…
I kind of don’t want to talk about it because it still hurts to talk about this show. Like in Glee, I loved the introduction to all the characters. Plus, looking back on this show and thinking about how much I would come to love these characters… it’s kind of fantastic.
2. Once Upon a Time
I just really loved the Snow/Charming element of this episode. Honestly, the episode was basically “how to make Meghan fall in love with Charming” and it worked. The moment he started sword fighting with a baby in his arms, I could hear the ovaries of women all over the world exploding.
I would explain this…but I think it’d be easier to show you:
I hope that clears things up…
