I like the show tremendously. It's set apart from most television. It pushes the limits and makes you ponder if this is how true Roman society was (which I could wholeheartedly believe). It's different and that's what I like. It took awhile to getting used to considering all the "clean" shows but when there is controversy there is popularity :)

The best advertising is sometimes the negative stuff :)
