      guilty pleasure for sure. Over the top but at the same time the fight scenes were more raw and real than anything I've seen on television before. Definately not Justified levels of awesome, but just so much fun to see things play out.

    •  Violent by Surprisingly effective: Spartacus (0+ / 0-)

      It will be missed; a great set of series for those that like over the top.

      •  Spartacus was pretty good until this last season (1+ / 0-)

        and maybe the previous one.  After being set free, the writers really let the story down and made it kind of stupid.  I have the final episode recorded, so I'll be watching that later today possibly, but I'm still disappointed with the arc that it took.  

        One disappointment: Having seen the old Kubrick film and having read about the real Spartacus rebellion, I was hoping for something grander.  I never had the feeling that Rome was a big place and that Romans had much to fear from Spartacus and his band.  They seemed too few, for one thing.

            by it, and I really wanted to like it.  Spartacus was much better, although it had its problems.

              First you pooh poohed gem of thrones, now Rome!  

              I agree the first few seasons of Spartacus were great.  I loved the whole house of batiatus, but once they escaped, it went down hill fast.

              Still watched it.  Loved the villains.
