EP. 347 — Merlin: The Return LIVE!

Don’t tell June, but Drop Dead Fred himself Rik Mayall stars alongside Tia Carrere in the 2000 fantasy film Merlin: The Return. LIVE from Belfast’s Ulster Hall, the HDTGM crew discuss Guinevere’s too tight hair curls, the sneaky ghost skeletons, the water hose in the science lab, and what it means to have #BigMerlinEnergy. Plus, a King Arthur in the audience asks Paul a momentous question. Also… ‘YER MA!

  Paul Scheer [00:00:00] Mordred is back with an evil plan and what it is. Well, I mean, we don’t really know exactly, but we do know that we saw Merlin The Return, so you know what that means.   Music [00:01:08] [Intro Song]   Paul Scheer [00:01:08] Hello people of Earth! And hello people of Belfast! Merlin is back. Oh, yeah. That’s right. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in present day UK. But guess what? What are they going to do? Nothing. Run, hide! This is a movie that primarily takes place in the woods. This is a movie that, according to the research, I did cost 20,000 pounds. This is a movie, and maybe the most shocking fact that came out in 2000. If you told me 1987, I would have been like, yes, that makes sense. But no, this came out in 2000. Oh my God. We are going to break it all down. So whether you are Team Merlin or Team Mordred. We will get to the bottom of it all. But first, let me introduce to you my co-host, Mr. Jason Mantzouka
