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.

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 not a political blog, so that’s enough of that. BSG has just started its final season/second half of the

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 a slimy slug living in the back of my nose. Yeah, that is a gross idea, but seriously that’s

Tis fair cold out today boys[1] Fair cold. Could even have done with a hat, gloves, and a scarf. Guess it really is October now. And autumn[2] or fall. Whatever, I’m all about embracing[3] the multitude of cultures. So happy Eid-ul-Fitr. And yes, that was yesterday[4] but still. Effort here. And of course happy Rosh Hashanah and welcome to the

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 few days, then again I may not. Decisive amn’t I? I’m cat minding at the moment, so am watching

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 the finale of this season’s Lost and the season finale of Bones and thats it. And to be honest

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 to say that I hate and despise Susan Mayer. She is just so pathetic and crap at everything. Even
