4.0 out of 5 stars Very Cool, April 4, 2011
I enjoy watching this show. It's a bit on the dirty side, nudity wise, than what I'm used to watching. But then again, the Romans weren't a chaste people. The violence is to be expected since it is about gladiators after all. Look forward to see what the writers will do with the story when the main actor is well enough to continue. We all know Spartacus is supposedly killed, but the body was never recovered. So will the writers make him secretly escape, or let it remain a mystery? Considering how disgusting the Romans are and how they treat their slaves, the viewer can only hope that some of the slaves escape the perversity and enjoy some portion of their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars This show is the best!, April 4, 2011
This review is from: Merlin: Season 1 (DVD)
I just love this show! It is the best. There is humour, magic, adventure and action!! The writers should be complimented on creating a young Merlin for viewers. The actor who portrays Merlin is extremely fun to watch on screen. He's adorable! Young Arthur, Morgana, Gaius, and King Uther are equally enjoyable to watch. Sorry to see Morgana become so evil, but it makes for good viewing. I hope this show goes on for a long time! It's one of my absolute favorites.

3.0 out of 5 stars First Season was the Best, April 4, 2011
This review is from: True Blood: Season 3 (DVD)
The first season of this series was the best because the screen writers were following the novels more accurately. After the first season, the screen writers went off in another direction completely with the story and characters, and I really am not enjoying the series very much at all now. It seems like it's getting worse and worse. The novels were a success for a reason -- the readers loved the author's work! The screen writers need to be more true to the actual novels. Eric and Pam were much more loveable and humorous in the novels than they are portrayed in the series. There's no personality. The writers aren't doing their job!! Eric wasn't shown to be such an underhanded schemer in the novels. The reader actually wanted Sookie with Eric. Tara didn't have much of a role, and LaFayette was killed off right away. New characters emerged. I hope the screen writers wise up or risk losing what could be a very large audience for the show. I would really love to see the novels acted out on screen. That's why I have continued to watch the show, but I get more and more disappointed as each season passes by.

I absolutely loved The Tudors, and I wished the show could go on forever. But alas, Henry VIII cannot live forever! Sad to see the show end.

This review is from: Julie & Julia (DVD)
Don't buy this garbage! Don't waste your money making someone, who is undeserving, a millionaire. If you're a fan of Julia Child, then go directly to the source and spend your hard earned money on her product. The US media gave way too much attention to someone who is a narcissistic bloodsucking opportunist. Then again, in these troubled times, there's nothing better than diverting the public's attention by panem et circenses. What is very disturbing is that not only did someone, who cooked Julia Child's recipes as millions of women have done for decades, and scammed sick days with pay from the government via the taxpayer while doing so, (No wonder our country is in such financial disorder with government workers doing this and their bosses allowing them to do so!) but she blogged about it with foul language and Julia Child herself did not approve of Mrs. Powell. And yet, this woman was given massive media attention for simply cooking recipes and blogging in a disrespectful manner. Simply amazing! Then again, that's the US media!

Not only is this woman offered media attention and massive deals by the media, she is now selling a book about Julia Child and herself, very egotistical to think we even care about her. And really, we don't. She is no one except another scammer. While alive, Julia Child obviously recognized this. Julia Child worked many years to accomplish what she did, and a year after she dies; this opportunist publishes a book about herself linking herself to Julia Child. Even the title stinks of self-importance: Julie and Julia not Julia and Julie. Just who is the famous person here who worked many, many years?! Certainly not the unstable Julie who is first depicted in the title?! That takes extreme nerve since Mrs. Powell has admittedly not completed anything in her life and should have even been fired from her job and also because Mrs. Child herself was not pleased with Mrs. Powell's bloodsucking opportunistic venture!

And if Mrs. Child was alive, would she have sued Mrs. Powell or the book publisher for doing so? It's no coincidence the book was published one year after Mrs. Child's death, and I must stress once again Mrs. Child did not approve of Mrs. Powell or her endeavors. I wonder if the estate has delved into this matter at all. In fact, the estate should really check into plagiarism since Mrs. Powell no doubt had to take information directly from Mrs. Child's book and biography in order to create her writing of Mrs. Child's life. And this obviously was not done with Mrs. Child's assistance or approval. The publisher should have reprinted Mrs. Child's own work rather than giving another bloodsucker an opportunity to exploit someone else's hard work, and the director should have also not taken the easy way out, and she should have created her screenplay from Mrs. Child's own memoirs keeping Ms. Streep to play the starring role. Save your money and stop making scammers wealthy!

I didn't like this bookmark. It was not well made, and it looked better in the photo.
