IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN MERLIN SEASON FOUR, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST. We start off with spoilers right off the bat. We also spoil the entire show, if you haven't seen any of it yet. It's available on Netflix streaming and season four just started on SyFy this weekend. If you don't care about Merlin, the good news is, the other hour of conversation will be forthcoming.
