OMG Merlin, let John finish his sentences!!!!

Seventh Segment

I surrender! So petty and whiny.

PickleOfTheNorth ,

It’s just about reached unlistenable.

This used to be an absolute favourite of mine, but Merlin is just ruining it at this point. Most episodes I find myself enraged because I want to enjoy what I KNOW would be a great show, but Merlin just won’t shut the hell up. Constant interruptions, constant useless chatter that’s irrelevant to anything happening. This show has so much cognitive overhead to sift through it’s just not enjoyable anymore.
