  1. I'll be very interested to watch "Troy: Fall of a City" in due course when it comes out. I hope they portray Achilles' and Patroclus' gay relationship accurately.

  2. I guess we'll never get tired of stories about the fall of Troy. I think they should do something about Ephesus. It's still a fantastic place, even in ruins. Troy not so much. Still I'll probably tune in.

  6. Glad that Netflix has a new one coming out. Jason just cancelled our cable since we hardly watch the telly anymore. I'll need me some good shows to keep me occupied while doing household chores.

    And, still looking forward to The Last Kingdom. I do agree, it was not visually appealing during the first season, so I hope they step it up for season 2!

    1. most things will start this March when it comes to shows. I'm finishing THE HALCYON and EMERALD CITY so I will have two empty spots, probably for LAST KINGDOM and EMPIRE.

      Yes, the director of Last Kingdom caught me trashing the lack of vision and visual identity of the show over at Twitter and got angry :) I was glad he heard the truth LOL
