    There were far too many naked dudes in Spartacus, but I'm glad that Nyssa (chick from Arrow) got naked a lot.. as did Lucy Lawless... ah young teen dreams of Xena. :laugh2:

    I love Spartacus. Great Roman Politics and Gore!

    I also like for complex stories: The Tudors which you can bing watch.

    Spartacus was awesome. I loved the series. But it was quite sad when the original actor of season one, Andy Whitfield, passed away from cancer. However, I eventually got used to seeing Liam McIntyre as well. Lots of blood and gore in that show. I loved how the blood would splash outward in an animated way in some scenes (I think done to lessen the gore). And the women were quite hot.

    It was like 3 seasons of a 300 movie. :dude: I was really sad when I read about Whitfield. He was perfect for the role IMO.

    I still enjoy Life on Top. I have no idea what the show is even about. But I like it

    I use Photoshop and a Graphics Tablet.

    It's quite fun. They normally take about 4-5 hours to finish

    nah just a cheap £30 thing I picked up on Amazon.
    Ugee M1000L. does the job pretty well. Eventually I'll upgrade to a decent Wacom

    I tried the Tudors; my problem is that unfortunately I know the history of the period too well, and just couldn't get past the disjuncts and fictions.

    Haven't seen Spartacus, can't get it. However, you do know, don't you, that gladiators in reality weren't slaves, and rarely were killed in the ring.....?

    Historical fiction is often better than the truth. I just leave it at that.

    My prediction: Jon will be reanimated by the Night King and become the leader of the White Walkers...

    The series is called "A Song of Ice and Fire". It seems pretty obvious Daenerys represents fire. All signs point(ed) to Jon Snow representing Ice. All the Rhollor (Red God) prophesies are about him being the "Lightbringer" or whatever. I'd be pretty surprised if Jon Snow doesn't make a comeback. Possibly more surprised if he came back as the leader of the White Walkers.
