Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
Friday's Spartacus: Gods of the Arena finale left us feeling abused, amused and slightly bemused. Bloodshed we expected, even a few tears, but a happy ending? We didn't see that one coming from across the arena.
In the wake of Titus and Melitta's death, the House of Batiatus was out for blood. Believing Tullius was behind the tainted wine, Batiatus' crew ambushed Tullius and his minions in an alley, where his life was initially spared, but only so Batiatus could kill him later and then wall his body up in the new arena he had built. What is with these ancient Romans and extreme displays of disrespect? On the arena's opening day, Sextus decided to treat the crowds to public executions including one for escaped slave Diona. Also, Solonius proved himself to be a good student at backstabbing after taking all of Vettius' gladiators, shorting his conspirator Batiatus who expected half of the men. But that's okay because Gannicus was the ultimate victor of the bloody Primus, thus winning elevated status for the House of Batiatus. Miffed, Solonius maneuvered Batiatus into making the ultimate sacrifice and show of public generosity: granting Gannicus his freedom.

Though Bryan Cranston is best known these days for his work in drama, the Breaking Bad star still loves a good laugh — especially one from a show that feels very familiar to him.
"Not since my days on Malcolm in the Middle have I seen a show that can make you laugh out loud and at the same time resonate on some deeper level [like Modern Family does]," Cranston tells TVGuide.com. "Extremely difficult to do because if the audience smells a 'message' in an episode — game over, show loses. This program has it all... wonderful writing, fantastic actors. Bravo."
