giving him the finger

I keep smiling over the idea that the dear old BBC might have misunderstood what is meant by the 'romance of Merlin and Arthur'. It actually means from the stories, that are written in French, rather than the two boys gazing deeply into each other's eyes, but never mind, keep up the good work.

That said, Merlin and Arthur do demonstrate all the qualities of courtly love, what with all their deeds and sacrifices, and not for the benefit of fair maidens, I might note, but for the sake of each other. How sweet. Or not.

I've been reading about courtly love. It's more fucked up than Dexter. Seriously.
