    I lovelovelove this. Love. I can’t wait until the show starts and we can start getting really into this!!

    (Two little clarifications, though, because I’m obsessive-compulsive enough to have to: 1) Gaius didn’t tell Merlin to destroy Aithusa’s egg, but he didn’t want Merlin to help Borden because he knew that Borden’s not trustworthy. He didn’t say anything about what to do with the egg once it’d been recovered either, just that it’s fate rested with Merlin.. And he reminded Merlin that it was nearly destroyed because of him [Merlin]. 2) Queen Annis was King Caerleon’s wife/widow, not his mother.)

    I love the fact that this podcast exists!

    I already have a bunch of podcasts to catch up on, but I’ll probably listen to this before I do that.

  • Katharine McKee

    That was soooo good! Seriously can’t wait until next episode! Do you think at some point you could discuss your favourite characters and episodes? Also, do you think Merlin will reveal his magic this season? Great job! :)

  • ravenclaw1991

    This was amazing! I can’t wait for the next one :)

    I bow down to the podcast making prowess that is the Hypable team!

    Well done ladies, I’ll listen as soon as the iTunes link starts working for me! :-)

    How do people audition for hypable podcasts…or are only in house hypable people that can do them?

    • Pamela Gocobachi

      Hypable has held open auditions for podcasts in the past (GleeChat, for example did this) but it depends on the show/who’s putting it together/a number of other factors. We actually almost held open auditions for this show but because we wanted to get to work on it right away, it was easier to look for people in house because figuring out how to audition people is quite the process and it takes a while! :)

  • Riku

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees. This made my Monday, totally listening to this later tonight! :D

  • summcohen

    Can i just say how much I love that the opening song is ‘you’re the voice’!

    • Pamela Gocobachi

      OMG! You get extra brownie points for commenting on the opening song– I was waiting to see if any listeners caught on! Glad you loved that little salute to the fandom because I got a kick out of it as well!

    Loved the podcast girls! I’m just going add to the ‘Colin Morgan is adorable’ topic. I come from the same place in Northern Ireland as Colin, a small city called Armagh. A while ago, around the time Season 1 had finished airing in the UK, the topic of Colin Morgan came up around the dinner table and my grandmother said that a friend of her’s daughter was a good friend of Colin’s. We joked about how this made us important by association. Well, about a month or two after this conversation, my grandmother handed me an envelope. She’d told her friend about how much of a fan I was, and the message got passed along to Colin himself, and in response, he sent me a personalised autographed picture. He really is such a sweet guy!
