Jupiter’s C–k

April 1, 2010

Starz TV has found itself a water cooler winner in Spartacus: Blood and Sand, while I have not yet seen the show, the mere fact I know of its existence is HUGE. Especially since Tom Fontana, David Chase or Paul Attanasio have nothing to do with it. The show boasts a solid cast of “Hey, it’s that guy/gal!” actors including: John Hannah, Andy Whitfield, Lucy Lawless and Peter Mensah.

I am trying to reserve judgment, but seeing a greezy brother in the promo pics does not bode well for the show.

I have a lot on my plate in terms of show surfing (ensuring I can get piggity paid) so I’m gonna have to table the show for now. But you brave souls can watch the first two episodes right on here!

    you should totally watch the first few episodes – if you have netflix you can stream them on demand! it should really be called “spartacus: outrageous blood splatters, titties, and naked dudes fighting” though.

    I do indeed have Netflix. If I can tear myself away from X-files and various other projects like my real job and Homicide: Life on the Street I will probably check it out. It sounds like Caligula meets Dynasty.

    I just wonder how they cast that actor with the repeated frontal nudity. “Must be very muscular, early 30s, Mediterranean-looking, and not have a very jiggly package.”

    XENA! I wanna see this show so bad and I’m glad I can check it out on Netflix; I didn’t know that! They also have season 1 of “Party Down”, which I’m dying to check out because the creator is the same guy behind one of my all-time favorite shows, “Veronica Mars”.

    Sweet.

    I decided a few years ago that I had missed out on a cultural cornerstone by never having seen Xena: Warrior Princess, and so I went through the first four seasons on Netflix. I didn’t want to see her die at the end of the series, though, so I haven’t watched the rest. Like holding on the image of the car as it hurls off the cliff in Thelma & Louise, I want to pretend she flies into the sky for forever.

    Watching Xena is great for simulating the kind of combined fear and titillation of the sort I used to get by attending a Heart concert.

    I love Party Down. I am happy to report it was picked up for another season. Never could get into Veronica Mars though.
