Spartacus and Torchwood Are Starz at Comic-Con Today!!
While I am not here in California but happen to be on the east coast (whiling away time sitting on a lake on a boat– feeling like I am between heaven and earth, I thought I would share some news. (The interesting part about being on this boat is that I can pick up a cell and even an internet connection. Go figure that one out! At least no one except the people on the boat can hear me talk and others can’t even hear my writing. )
Comic-Con is going on in San Diego as we speak and yesterday was USA Network day, today is Starz day with Torchwood (which is on tonight at 10 PM on Starz!! Don’t miss this action packed thriller as this particular episode unfolds a lot of new elements and nuance to the entire situation. Things are not all they seem to be.)

About “Torchwood: Miracle Day”: Imagine a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging. They get hurt and sick but they never die.

About “Spartacus: Vengeance” (Premiering 2012)
From the time “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” debuted on Starz in January 2010, it established itself as an epic production with rich storytelling and visuals unlike anything seen previously on any TV show. Also starring John Hannah as Batiatus, Lucy Lawless as Lucretia, Peter Mensah as Doctore, Manu Bennett as Crixus and Viva Bianca as Ilythia, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” was one of the most talked-about and best-loved TV shows of 2010.
“Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” the six-part prequel that told the story of the House of Batiatus gladiator school, and the intricate personal, sexual and political maneuverings in Capua five years before “Blood and Sand” was set, debuted in January 2011.
Season two of the series finds Spartacus and his fellow gladiators now out of Capua and engaged in the massive slave rebellion against Roman society that has echoed through time. Liam McIntyre takes over the role of the Thracian warrior sold into slavery in the Roman Republic city of Capua – where he rises to become the champion of the city – before leading the slave revolt that ended the first season. The part was played in the first season by acclaimed Andy Whitfield, who was forced to leave the show due to health issues. “Spartacus: Vengeance” recently began production in New Zealand.
