Spartacus : Gods of the arena dir. by

First things first, this is an awesome show. Awesome! Anyone who says different is just plain wrong!

When I first started watching Spartacus : Blood and Sand I have to say that I wasn’t overly impressed. Obviously influenced by the style and look of 300 it seemed to be a show that existed only to show glossy violence and sex. And boy did it ever show that. But after the first few episodes it developed into a very enjoyable, almost addictive, show. But then its star was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and so film making was delayed as he underwent treatment. And so instead of a second season we got a prequel. Spartacus : gods of the arena. Don’t be fooled by that name in the title, this has no Spartacus as all, instead it tells the story of how John Hannah’s Lentulus Batiatus comes to run the family ludus, and how Crixus becomes a gladiator.

Yes we can!

I should get up off my arse and go pee. So America has a new president. Congrats all. Wish we could get a new government. I have totally no confidence in the present load of TDs and ministers. But this is...

We all fall down

The first cold of 2009 has struck. And so soon after the last one of 2008! Life just isn’t fair. Hopefully it won’t turn out to be the flu, cause that’d suck. Majorly. At the moment it feels like there is...

back to black

Yes, I’ve gone back to the old theme. I’m not sure why. Couldn’t find a new one that I liked and I missed a header image with the last one. I may do a couple of header images over the next...

Oh my gawd!

Do you know that I have watched no real telly so far this week. Okay, so I spent the long weekend watching nothing but House season one. But that was on dvd, so it doesn’t count. Apart from that I’ve watched...

Sometimes evil drives a minivan

Desperate Housewives made it back onto our screens last night. RTE even showed a special “catch-up” episode beforehand. Just in case any of us had forgotten the crazy wackiness that goes on on Wisteria Lane. And so I would just like...
