Yes we're going to a Sparty party...

The countdown is almost run down to zero. As I type this there are less than two hours left before the season finale of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand". I must admit that I await if with mixed feeling. After all, the title of the episode is "Kill Them All" so I am wondering how many of the characters that I love to hate will be around for next season. I never though I would see the day when I became such an avid fan of a TV show that includes routine fighting, decapitation, disembowlments and enough spurting blood to make anyone who misses watching ER really happy. I resisted watching this Starz cable network series when it first came on in January. My comment was that it would be too gross and disgusting. At one point about midway through the series I caught a few minutes of it and I was hooked. OH EM GEE, what a bunch of folks! If you can look past all the gratuitous sex and violence you will see the greatest soap opera of all times. I made a point of getting all caught up and tonight it ends for an unknown period of time. Although renewed for a second season Sparty himself, actor Andy Whitfield, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and filming was put on hold while he undergoes treatment. A speedy and complete recovery is wished for him and the fans of this series (including me) are waiting for good news about his condition.

If you watch this show then enjoy! Are you having a Sparty Party? Cocktails, snacks and yelling "Jupiter's C**k" are purely optional! You can always play party games while you wait for the episode to start. Maybe a pop quiz, for example who knows what the "Kirk Douglas" is? I do - I do! Hint: not all men are created equal. Now go ahead & Google it!
