I’ve been holding the vast majority of my comments on the current BBC Saturday night ‘family entertainment’ travesty until the end of the current series. But honestly, it’s getting harder and harder to bite my tongue. In the meantime, I’ve been amusing myself by looking at the viewing figures that the ever-informative Gealach-Ros has been posting. And the comparison to Merlin S1 comparable data just says it all really.
I’m happy number crunching on excel but my brain is more visually-orientated. So here for any like-minded soul, and your viewing pleasure, are the Merlin Versus Atlantis viewing figures to-date. It’s a basic chart but I’ll try and fancy it up once the final data is in for Atlantis ep113.
Snark-mode is now definitely on. I think it’s fitting that coming up to the anniversary of Merlin’s demise, when you (J’s) made the majority of fandom weep on Christmas Eve (and not necessarily in a good way), that you are provided with a similar opportunity. So here you go, read it and weep, Julian & Johnny :-/
Except… knowing the level of your hubris, you’ll probably just interpret (massage?!) this as a solid fan-base from which improved figures will magically appear in S2, rather than the P45 which should by rights be winging it’s way to you in the post right now.
