Breaking Bad is awesome.
Sons of Anarchy is awesome.
Dexter is awesome.
I'm completely shocked at the lack of Spartacus recommendations. So only three of us here watch it???
THE REST OF YOU ARE BLOWING IT THEN (including those who have watched it and wrote it off)!
StarzHD - Spartacus
It's on the last episode and there is a total of 4 seasons (one being a prequel story). It's a great series and really stays true to Ancient Roman culture. This means it isn't kid friendly and they aren't bashful about the sex homo or hetero. Gratuitous violence and nudity from both sexes.
Aside from all that, the story is great. It's even better if you know of what little history there is of Spartacus. You know the ending, yet the show has you rooting for characters that you know are doing to die.
By the way, there isn't a single actor in there that struck me as bad. Actually, there was this actress in the second season that wasn't all that great, but she made up for it in eye-candy so it evens out.
Glad to see some Spartacus fans! I absolutely love this show. I can't wait for the series finale, and though I know the true outcome of it, I'm just waiting on how the show will portray the end.
It was really unfortunate that the original Spartacus actor died of pancreatic cancer after the first season. I actually liked him more than the current Spartacus.
The eye candy (female) in this show is all over the place. Fighting, sex, boobs, dialogue, fighting, sex, boobs, fighting, dialogue, sex, boobs... that's pretty much each episode.
