Here Be Dragons
Sad news, Merlin fans: The current season of the hit BBC show, season five, will be its last. There will be a two-part finale around Christmastime that, says the BBC, will bring the show to a "natural and dramatic end." And then… nothing. My first reaction to this was to scream unto the heavens (in a restrained, office-appropriate way, of course), "BBC, you big dollop-heads!" But then I started thinking: Maybe this is good. The show's kind of gone off the rails lately, hasn't it? Perhaps it's better just to end it.
