    I have been enjoying the new show Spartacus on the Starz
    network. Does anyone else like it? I was also wondering how accurate do you think the portrayal of ancient Rome is in the show, according to what you may know of ancient Rome?

      My teenagers had this show on and I caught parts of it.  All I can say is, it appears to be designed to attract a certain demographic.

      And, did they really say the F word back then?  That doesn't strike me as very authentic.  smile

        When I heard them use that word, I asked myself the same question.

    I loved Gladiator Movies all my life.  I can say this is up there with some of the best. And it's a series! I'm in heaven!

      I'm in heaven
      And my heart beats
      So that I can hardly speak
      And I seem to find
      The happiness I seek "

      Me too, I must have watched Gladiator with Russel Crowe a zillionth times:-)
