Finally got around to watching 'Rev'. Tom Hollander adorable as expected (and rather frazzled, actually- he looks every inch the careworn vicar here), and yes, a bit like the Barchester Chronicles, only set now. I enjoyed how topical it was when it came to addressing the problems that the Anglicans are facing at the moment- priests 'going over to Rome', falling church attendence figures, not having enough money (this is a problem my parish has at the moment- Catholic parishes are not exempt from this either obviously). Enjoyed the skewering of the happy clappy megachurch/Hillsong-style of evangelical worship in episode 2 particularly.
Still watching Spartacus too (episode 5 is this week). I think I'm going to keep watching for Batiatus and Lucretia, but otherwise it kind of leaves me cold. Maybe the censorship has something to do with it? I will watch the prequel though, just because it's more of Capua's fierce Power Couple. Might watch a series 2- I'd love to see Crassus appear in some way, shape or form. If they were going to do the whole story, they might even be able to wedge Pompey into the tail-end of the narrative, just to make things interesting.
We're supposed to get word on who'll be governing us tomorrow, at least according to the media. I'm just hoping that we won't end up at the polls again anytime soon.
