Spartacus: Blood and Sand is my current guilty pleasure on television. Sure, it makes “300” look like “Citizen Kane,” but it is great bloody fun! Anyway, some of my friends griped they could not see it, since it is on a subscription channel. I just noticed today that it also available on Netflix as an instant download offering. It is an unusual approach.The DVD is not available and the show premiered in January, so this is an incredibly rapid turnaround. I hope it is a trend
A special request to HBO: “A Game of Thrones” on Netflix would be very nice. Just a thought…
Just an FYI for those without the pay channel package on their cable box and the urge to watch gladiators slay each other to the approval of a bloodthirsty crowd.
