- Feel like I've been drunk all weekend, and it was only Friday. Clearly my body is not used to drinking Friday evening and then shopping in Flensburg for four hours Saturday. The only time I was actually awake was when a banana-split was put in front of me. Yum.

- Apparantly season five of Merlin is going to be the last? I'm sad that its over, but tbh, I don't care all that much. The storylines and writing of characters have rapidly become worse these last few seasons, and I'm starting to get so annoyed by it, I can't properly enjoy the show anymore. I still haven't seen past 5x03, because there's been so many other things I would rather be doing. Not that I don't still love it, but I'm finding it a bit 'meh' currently

- Has anything been confirmed for the 50th Doctor Who anniversary? I keep seeing 'oh, Tennant has been confirmed', 'oh, Eccleston has been confirmed', but then there's something to rebuke it and blabla. Does anyone know anything about what's been planned? I just want everyone to return and have a giant TARDIS-party, please.

So it's confirmed? Season 5 will be the last? Do you have a source that I can read?

I understand your feelings about this season. I keep watching for affection mostly xD

No idea about the Doctor Who anniversary. I'd like EVERYONE to be present in it, but I'm sure that whatever it is it'll be glorious.

I first saw it on the fanpage here on livejournal (I can't remember if it was merlin_tv or just bbc_merlin), then stumbled upon that one, but it looks pretty legit.

Lol, same. I have a friend whose absolutely CRAZY about it, and whenever we have time, we get together to watch the new episodes. Otherwise I don't think I'd keep up now. Maybe watch the last season during the holidays or something.

Exactly! Everyone from the Seventh Doctor to Martha Jones PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE! I'm worried it'll be 'just' the current Doctor and companions tbh. I mean, that would be okay, but... how many shows can say they've had a 50th Anniversary? And with so many actors involved... GO BIG PEOPLE!

Oh yes, I read the BBC release (or whatever it's called) like 10 seconds after commenting here xD
I am sad about it because the show has so much undeveloped potential imo, and it's just sad that the producers/creators haven't seen it.

OMG, YES MARTHA ♥ I'd love to see Nine again! And Jack! And Donna, and Ten, and Jackie, and... yes, pretty much everyone xD

I think after season 1 it did go a little dry. There are heaps of potential, especially from the actors, but there seems to be an unwillingness to be daring enough to do sort of different things? It's been the same since the end of S2. I think the only episode that completely blew me away was 'The Wicked Day', 4x03, which was a BRILLIANT episode imo, and showed so much skill from the writers side. It bugs me then, that they've decided to be cautios instead of going all-out and shocking us. And the magic reveal has been all too long coming! It's been ten years in-verse, for Merlin and Arthur.

Exactly! :D

FLENSBURG? Is there a Flensburg in Denmark too or have you visited my country?
Banana split! *grabby hands*

I heard that too. It's sad the the show will end so soon, but hey, at least now people know when that magic reveal everyone seems top be waiting for will happen.
Also, this is exactly how I feel about Supernatural. Except that there's still no end in sight for that show.

Ha, nothing has been confirmed, nothing! I don't want to believe anything until it's officially official. I wish people wouldn't get all flaily over non-confirmed stuff - sometimes it manages to get my hopes up.
Reminds me of Sherlock's Moriarty situation. There was an article that said Andrew Scott wouldn't be back for S3 filming and one that said he would be back. I bet he won't be back, although I'm still hoping he will be. I need my flashbacks!

No, we don't have a Flensburg! I live twenty minutes from it :) I'm right beside the border here - the entire area I live in used to be German for many years before the first world war, :D

Yes! I'm just annoyed that there's only four episodes to go, and they'll probably wait until the last or second-to-last to do it - and I always hoped they would have at least a season to develop what that means. There's so much potential to be had, especially from a show whose been showing the same thing over and over again. We need to see the magic reveal already!

The 50th Anniversary had better be awesome - and I'm having trouble seeing how it truly could be, without some old faces popping up.

OMG, you're so close! I mean, we could totally meet up one day! But we'll still have to communicate via computer, because my spoken English is bad. Or I speak German and you speak English. XD

Whoa, only 4 episodes to go?! So I guess the reveal was filmed already. I wonder if they planned to end it with that or wanted to continue. I mean, there must be stuff from the legend that they haven't done yet.

Ohhhh gooood, I wish I could stop worrying about the anniversary. We had too much time to get our hopes up, so how can the anniversary possibly be as great as we want it to be?

We definitely could ;-) and lol, with how rusty my German is getting, I'm not sure that would be a good idea xD but we'd figure something out :D

I think the plan was five seasons from the start - or at least so they're saying. I don't know, I haven't watched past 5x03 yet, I think I'm saving it for my winter break.

Exactly! I think no matter what, I'll be a little dissapointed, but just the fact that it seems like absolutely nothing is being planned? No-one's been contaced, there's nothing... of course, they could all just be super-secretive about it. God I hope so!

But could we really? I mean, I'm being serious now. I have a card that gets me train tickets cheaper (though it's still expensive, thanks to the Bahn's stupid prices) and it lasts until September (unless I renew it). ...Whoa, just checked, occasionally I can get to Flensburg with one train, but most connections are with 3. And the ride is 7 1/2 hours, so I should probably stay in Flensburg overnight. Dammit, this will be expensive. Probably can't afford it in 2013, since I've already planned Muse gigs in London and visiting my penpal in the South of Germany.

Ha, the plan for Supernatural was for it to be 5 seasons long. I wish it would have been. But so far it didn't get as bad as The X-Files did. I mean, I like Doggett and Reyes, but without Mulder and Scully it just wasn't The X-Files anymore. Anyway, if Merlin was planned this way, it's good that they stick to the plan.

Doctor Who is still Moffat-run and there's no bigger lying liar who lies than the Moff, so I guess he made everyone lie about their involvement. D'oh, I'm getting my hopes up again. Oh, but I just remembered that there's gonna be a new TARDIS interior - and back down they are! Argh, change!

Jesus Christ Superstar, now I'm getting a panic attack! But yes, yes we definitely could one day in the future :) lol, I'm getting shy already. And hey, we can always just plan ahead, and I could come to you instead, or you could stay with me once I finally move out (in a billion years from now BUT IT WILL HAPPEN). Meeting my closest internet-friends is on my 'things-to-do-before-i-become-so-old-i-need-adult-diapers'-list!

Yeah, exactly. With the way season 6 is going, I'm wishing they really had stopped it there. And it's not that I'm not enjoying season 6, because there are good episodes and amazing characters (

Ooh, this, so much. They're going to change the design of the TARDIS? AGAIN? Jeeeeeeesus, people -.-

Yeah, not that sad about Merlin, tbh I was hoping they would end it here, before it got too ridiculous or anything. S5 isn't bad at all, but mostly I'm still watching because this show is like a mug of hot chocolate to me :) So there will be a tear or two, but I think it's for the best.

Idk about Doctor Who, I don't think anything is official yet. I just want everyone to be in it :)

I'm definitely going to miss it, I think, especially because its the only show that I've been with it right from the beginning, instead of jumping the wagon when it was several seasons in already, but... yeah. It's been lacking a lot these last couple of years :/

I just don't get it if the actors are the ones to say no to it (unless they're otherwise engaged of course and can't make it, but if its because they just don't want to...) I mean, how often do you get a 50th anniversary for a still running tv-show??
