The acting is superb, the scenery is stunning, and I'm once again bored.


I truly think Spartacus has pretty much spoiled every historical drama for me. Nothing can be as shiny, as violent, as sexual or as emotionally satisfying as Spartacus: Sands and Blood.

I want to like Borgias, the whole Borgias family is absolutely fascinating (and LOL worthy). The period they are covering is one of the most colourful and interesting time in Roman/Venetian history - the inventions, the wars, and the amazing historical figures.

I’m just really bored.

This was pretty much how I felt during most of Rome - I liked it, and felt as if I should love the whole thing, but all I could think about when presented with Atia was Lucretia, and just, I wanted my Spartacus.

Furthermore, I’m having the same problem with Camelot. I just can’t get emotionally engaged, and mostly end up comparing it to the awesome that is Spartacus.

Gods, I hope Game of Thrones don’t disappoint.
