  2. Like Mary, I probably wouldn't watch it. Mostly because I'm not a fan of all the gore in Spartacus.. but the storyline sounds great.

  3. God, at first I thought you were going to be promoting that Anne Boleyn crap they are making. My bestie is all about following the royals and is totally up in arms over the casting choice with that one.

    With that said, this one sounds like a much better watch than that.

    1. I was one of the loudest opposers to that vile crap so I would rather die than promote something so blatantly disrespectful. I have a list of actors who are not welcomed here and she is high on it, awful actress, awful.
