In today’s episode, MissSnowfox and Momo are joined by Connor to talk about the male villains of the first series of Merlin.

Join us for two hours and 15 minutes of a lot of giggling, a bunch of tangents that got cut from the final product, a healthy dose of appreciation of just what a ridiculous villain Kanen really was, and many other things.

Please note that the episode starts with a slightly startling noise of someone knocking something over :).
