I'm up to date on Shameless!
Spartacus is actually a very entertaining show. It has over the top display and 300 like slow-mo of its violence, but it has good characters, good action, plenty of violence and sex, and an interesting plot. It sort of reminds me of Rome, although I would rate Rome way higher. I still haven't watched the season premiere, but I'm sure with the death of Andy Whitfield the show might have lost a big chunk of what made it good.
