Spartacus Blood And Sand


It was really late at night and I half-watched two back to back episodes of Spartacus Blood And Sand. What a really odd program that is! I think it is trying to be like Rome (the BBC/HBO series) but even though some of the women were almost wearing their togas it just didn't feel like Rome at all..just feels like a stage set....and the little Scottish guy from Four weddings and a funeral is totally miscast and just swears all the time...the lead actor looks nothing like Kirk Douglas..and then there are the gladiators...they just lay about naked all the time talking BS and being ultra macho but the overall effect is very gay. Can't take any of the gladiators seriously especially Crixus and Spartacus... .loads of female nudity but also people with limbs missing just put in to shock..pointless violence and nastiness.
Mary Whitehouse would be spinning in her grave...that is if anyone was actually watching it. Has anybody else seen this?
