Please tell me, y'all - if you have HBO, y'all are watching "Rome"? Right? If not, you should be doing just that.

This scene in the arena simply kicked ass. It really did. And it made me get teary-eyed. Teary-eyed over blood and guts in the arena? Aye, citizen, it turned me into a right wussy girl. When I thought our good men of the 13th, Pullo and Vorenus, were going to buy it, I had a moment. I will miss this show when it ends next week.

"...and please look after Vorenus and his wife, if it's not too much trouble." Oof.

Yeah..that scene was totally rocking. I thought the series had been dragging, but last week's episode made up for it.

I tried Rome, the first episode, but it didn't grab me. Guess I missed out.

I'm can't wait for Deadwood Season 3!

Just ran across this:


"Those who dismiss HBO’s 'Rome' as all toga and no action are in for a jolt.

Sunday’s episode climaxes with perhaps the single best action sequence of the year in TV or film. It’s savage, shocking and not for the squeamish."

guess I had better set my TiVo.

Yes, indeedy, set that Tivo, PT!

Glad to see you dug it, too, Cubette. The Sasquatch and I ended up watching it for a second time, over the phone, last night.

Next week will be quite something...

I'm suddenly reminded of that classic line from the movie Airplane:

"Joey, you like movies about gladiators?"
