Okay, so RTD is coming back to Doctor Who, Teen Wolf gets a sequel movie, Supernatural's prequel series is in the making, Benedict Cumberbatch is somehow still a popular dark-haired-brit-tumblr-crush as is Tom Hiddleston (I understand that one a little to be fair, he's nice), Loki is for sure gonna show up on at least three lists when we do the whole 2021 in review thing, Twilight is having a bit of a comeback and Percy Jackson is getting a Disney+ show. I swear I'm not gonna complain about any of this, I'm even looking forward to the oncoming chaos, BUT where is Merlin?

I know we're all trying to get Merlin to be the next thing that gets rebooted, but uh. Are yall really sure? Im like 90% sure it would be a "be careful what you wish for" situation. Like, a 'Kilgharrah gets recasted as James Cordon' type situation. A 'Gwaine unironically fortnight dances at least twice' situation. Are you sure you guys want that? Are you sure you can cope with that? Could you really live with yourselves knowing that reboot!Percival is being played by John Cena?

Uther: Merlin, you have been accused of using sorcery
Uther: you know what this means
Merlin: but my name is Marvin
Uther: not it's not
Merlin: I'm pretty sure I know my own name, your majesty
Uther: I have it on good knowledge that-
Merlin: what's your source, Sire?
Uther: *sighs* Gaius, would you please help me out here?
Gaius: I have studied birds all my life, Sire. Marvin has helped me out finding new informations on Merlin's too, If that helps
Uther: what the - LEON!
Leon: Sire, Marvin here may be a bit incompetent, but now you're beeing unfair. He DOES know his own name.
Uther: okay, ARTHUR!
Arthur: *out of earshot* YES, FATHER?
Uther: GET IN HERE RIGHT NOW!!!
Arthur: *walks in*
Merlin *whispers to Leon*: shit, have you told Arthur?
Leon: *pale* no, you?
Merlin: *shakes head very slowly*
Arthur: father, i was training the knights, what do you - oh hey Marvin
Uther: you can't be serious

Ok, but...we need to talk about the wasted potential of these two
Two powerful and awesome villains, but the writers only used Morgana as the main villain :/
Nimueh was the Sorceress of Life and Death, was the final Keeper of the Isle of the Blessed, literally owned the Cup of Life, she's so powerful that her magic gave her youth which is why she looks so young even though her and Gaius are around the same age. She was also the last priestess who truly seemed to actually care about what the Old Religion had to say, even in her own twisted way. Also, Nimueh is honestly the only of the 3 High Priestesses where the justification of her actions didn't make me laugh or be like: "Riiiiiiiight...." lol
Sigan was the greatest sorcerer Camelot has ever known, before Merlin. His magic helped build Camelot itself and he is the only wizard who defeated death (except Merlin, who is immortal). This guy was so interesting, he had potential, but the writers turned him into a filler character.
We could have a Morgana, Nimueh and Sigan Team Up. Too bad, really...
