Still fresh in my heart were the cancellations of Merlin as well as the UK's Being Human. However, it pleases me to know that while the shows may be gone, the actors won't be long away from my viewing pleasure.

Alum of Merlin:
Colin Morgan is currently on stage at the RSC starring as Ariel in The Tempest. Also starring Roger Allam!! But for anyone who won't be able to catch it, he will soon be guest starring in Gabriel Byrne's new series, Quirke.

Katie McGrath is staying strong to her horror/fantasy roots with the new Dracula series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Anthony Head (whom we last heard in the fabulous Neverwhere radio play) is returning to his WB roots (sort of) with this CW series. And also keeping his foot in fantasy with a role in the new Percy Jackson movie.

Alum of Being Human:
Damian Molony will be guest starring in the 2nd season of Ripper Street. I about died when I heard.

Michael Socha is sticking with the fantasy genre and moving across the pond with a role in a spinoff.

Extra Alum News:
Doctor Who still exists but no longer in David Tennant form. With that in mind, David Tennant is slated to guest star in Hannibal. I flailed a little when I heard this. And gasped in shock a little when I heard that Tennant nearly got the titular role. I can totally picture him as Will Graham but never in a billion years can I picture him as Hannibal Lecter. So wise choices, all around.

I'm probably the last person on LJ to comment on the series finale of Merlin. I'd largely fallen behind in watching this show during its last season partly due to school but also because my general interest had waned a bit. But I couldn't let this show go without at least saying a few things about its end.

So below the cut is my long review, sort of recap of the two part series finale.

Spoilers for everything )

Thus concludes another BBC show that so many were obsessed with, including myself for at least a time. I think I'm most sad that now Colin Morgan and Bradley James no longer have a reason to hang out together 4 months at a time. But the best of luck to them as well as the rest of the cast in their careers.

It was announced today that Merlin has been officially canceled after 5 seasons.

The last two part series finale will air in late December in the UK.

My thoughts )

The latest season of Merlin has begun! I have the first episode but am holding onto it until the 2nd part of the two parter airs next week. So no review for me this week for the premiere.

In other random news, I saw Looper which proved to be immensely disappointing. It had all the elements of being the sort of film I love (Time travel! Joseph Gordon-Levitt! Confronting fate!) but it went in a direction in the last half that just killed the story. I really liked Rian Johnson's Brick despite its flaws and thought at the time of viewing that he was someone to watch because I assumed he'd grow as director. Well, two movies later it seems like everything that was bad about Brick just got magnified in Looper.

I completely fell behind writing up reviews of this season's Merlin. Mainly because I also completely fell behind watching the episodes in a timely fashion. But now that I finally caught up with the season's finale, I thought I'd do a Best Of moments for the season as a whole.

Spoilers for all of season 4 )

Considering all the intended homicide, this episode was rather cheerful. And hilarious.

I took this to mean top five personal favorite moments in the shows that inspired me to partake in some capacity in the fandom.

Spoilers for Being Human UK, Sherlock, Inception, Merlin, and White Collar )

EDIT: I'd like to reiterate a WARNING that when I say "spoilers," I mean for everything that's aired. This includes UK air times.

Anyway. Onwards!

It seems this show is getting way more intriguing with every episode!

Also: THE CRYSTAL CAVE.

My review for this week is sort of...thin. Mainly because I didn't really know what to say about this episode.
