Another new series on Showtime this year that I like is Shameless. I can't even begin to explain it. It's very different and entertaining.

A couple shows that pissed me off, because they were cancelled: Deadwood, Rome.

It's getting hard to find a series to watch that isn't some kind of cop show.

I thought Rome was great. Though I was kinda shocked when they killed off that Caesar character, especially on such a pretty March day.

Have you seen Spartucus on Starz? It is "Rome," with big name actors, but filmed by Vivid studios in the San Fernando Valley. (Not really--another Brit effort.)

It's total porn. And really, it's distracting. Full frontal everything, every 5 minutes and somethin' for evreyone----straight sex, gay sex, lesbian sex, three-ways. It's a bore. Production values aren't Rome's, the dialog is corny and uses the f-bomb in every third sentence.

Though, I gotta say, whatever taste one likes in one's mouth, there's succulent flesh enough for all manner of preferences.

There, I said it.

Someone at work was just telling me about that show. I was telling him I was feeling dirty because of all of the old west whores in Deadwood, and he admitted to being addicted to watching that show.

Sounds like my Catholic guilt! I can help you to learn to ignore it. A whole bunch o' shrinks made a ton of money off that one. And then became social workers and dentists.

I lived 22 miles from Tombstone and commuted through it everyday.
The "old west" whores are still there. Now though, they get their wardrobes at WalMart in Sorry Vista and only screw the OK Corral re-enactors. Um, I mean, Sierra Vista. Town slogan on the "Welcome to..." sign? Sierra Vista! Where a visit lasts a lifetime!

Not exactly un unbridled endorsement.

Might as well just watch Caligula, no?


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

No. These humans are way hotter. Not the big name people, but the extras have lots of, um extras.

Turn off the sound and listen to John Cage.

I've been watching Spartacus. It's entertaining, but like you said Bob, a bit too much.

I bought and watched the BR season one of Sons of Anarchy. I thought that was a pretty good show. Haven't bothered to buy the rest of the seasons yet.

Started watching the Tudors, got through three seasons and just couldn't watch it anymore as I think they could have followed history a bit better.

Season One of "Twin Peaks" was interesting. Season Two...not so much.
