The other day, while Adam has been laid up in bed, he started watching Spartacus. I believe it's a showtime series. Anyways, I didn't watch the first couple episodes because I had kids to attend to (do you sense a bit of jealousy? Not for the surgery, but staying in bed all day). A little bit later in the day, when the kids were napping, Adam asked me, "See if this guy used a body double". Well ok. He was setting me up. I walked in and he started the episode. Much to my pleasant surprise was a man painted in gold, with a mask, completely in the buff! It's not often that you get to see full male nudity. My husband was looking for my reaction. Most shows/series are directed, I assume, at men because all you see is T & A (if you don't know what that means, ask someone). What about women (which is why my husband showed me, I despise double standards)? Do we ever get the pleasure of seeing a little P & A? Well this series sure provides it.
Along with all of the nudity and massive amounts of lovin'( it's on the verge of soft core porn), there is a true love story in this season. Spartacus fights for the one he loved, his wife, who was murdered. However, I have no clue what Season 2 brings. I feel like the last episode ended the whole series. People are creative, so who knows. If you chose to watch this be prepared. If men and women in their natural state makes you uncomfortable this isn't the show for you. Also be prepared for the horrific fights. It's as gory as it can get. I mean blood, guts, and heads flying everywhere. The graphics are a little cheesy at times but tolerable.
So mommies, indulge yourself in this show when the kids are napping or in the evening time. The male human body is amazing. The gladiators are as masculine as it gets so prepare for a little jealousy from your husband because I'm positive there will be a smile on your face (about time, right?). They truly are beautiful creatures. I enjoyed watching it and the male nudity made it all the better (smile).
Note: Not all of my post will pertain to sex or the human body. It just happens to be all around me the last few days. I'm just being honest. I promise going forward my posts will be a little more PG 13.
[Update 1/22/2012- After writing this post and publishing it, Adam researched and realized that Season 2 of Spartacus had already been filmed and released. The sad news, the main character who played Spartacus, Andy Whitfield, died last year of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. They have cast a new actor to replace him, but I don't think the series will be the same. RIP Andy Whitfield.]
