    Yeah I've caught up to the latest episode. It's pretty awesome. There was one episode in season one when he fights in the pits that was almost too gross for me though ahah.

    I just heard about this. Man that is sad. He WAS Spartacus. Brought a perfect dynamic to that character.

    Rest in peace Andy.

    ... Blood and Sand, but I have seen Rome and 300.

    You didn't find 300 faky? One would think a film shot entirely on a soundstage with computer graphics added afterward, which was based on a comic book based on a film based on Herodotus, would seem fakiest.

    I think you would like it if you haven't read it. :salute!:
    It deals with the invasion of the western part of the Roman Empire by tribes, mostly German ones.

    Managed to get a boxed set on acid free paper. It was a book club incentive gift.

    Gibbon published the first volume of it in 1776.

    It still stands as a valid work of history.

    There are a number of ancient sources of information about Spartacus including Plutarch, Appian, Florus, Orosius, Sallust and Diodorus Siculus.

    As a teacher, I'm enthusiastic about something that sparks interest in anything.

    I taught a social studies class last year, Classical Greek and Roman Studies, in which we actually read Homer's Iliad, Herodotus' Histories, Ovid's Metamorphoses and Books XXI-XXX of Livy's History of Rome which cover the Second Punic War (all in translation).

    We watched 300 and Troy and pointed out all the errors.

    When I first saw this show I passed it over because I thought it was too much like 300 (a movie I wasnt that high on).

    But I gave it a second chance and am glad I did. Heckuva doggone good show.



    Hopefully theyll be able to do a second season, and if they do hopefully Andy Whitfield will be able to play Spartacus again.
