Has anyone been watching the Spartacus series (on Starz, I think)?
I started watching it as basically a junk-food type show ("Ancient Rome, gladiators, and boobs, AWESOME!") but I'm amazed at how awesome the show has been and stayed through three (technically four) seasons. The first season was a little wobbly and slow but by midpoint they'd gotten a grip on it.
It's more than just menertainment, I highly recommend it. Definitely NSFW though.
I am as direct as a T-Rex with 'roid rage and about as subtle. It isn't intended to cause upset, I just prefer to talk plain. There are plenty of other people here who do the nice, polite thing much better than I can. I'm what you'd call a "problem dinner guest."
