Is anyone else watching Spartacus on Starz? Oh. My. Gawd. This show is porn with English accents. I don't know if anyone uses this phrase anymore, so I may be showing my age, but this show is exactly the kind of show that spawned the term "Late Show H.O.". Hubs has been watching it but I usually sit in the room and read. I do, however, glance up at the TV from time to time and usually there's either a hot guy in a loincloth or naked chicks or an orgy or all three. Hubs agrees it's very homoerotic. It's a good story, there's all kinds of intrigue and scheming, and some sad bits too, but I have to say all the sex is distracting. (Distracting me from my books, LOL!) And the blood - oh the blood is EVERYWHERE!
Here's the official trailer (watch it - you won't be sorry):

Sadly, it was announced earlier this month that Andy Whitfield (Spartacus) has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and filming for season 2 has been postponed while he receives treatment. I'm sending healthy thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery!
