Are you partial to the bloody brawn of Spartacus: Vengeance's Liam McIntyre? Or do you prefer Shameless star Emmy Rossum and her, um, shamelessly clothes-free sex scenes? Speaking of....

There really is no better or more satisfying drama on Sunday nights than CBS' delicious The Good Wife — and yes, I'm counting cable (even pay) in that equation, at least for now, while we're in between seasons of such dynamic signature shows as Homeland, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc. (Although PBS' Downton Abbey comes close as the quintessential TV great escape.) This is especially true this Sunday, as Good Wife delivers a pivotal and sensationally entertaining episode (9/8c) firing on all burners. There's suspense, humor, memorable and electrifying showdowns between many of the major characters, pretty much everything you want from a show at the top of its game.
This is not the way you want to land a job. But Liam McIntyre is making the best of it. The 29-year-old Australian actor — little known even in his own country — has stepped into the starring role in the hit sex-and-swords series Spartacus: Vengeance, which returns Friday (10/9c, Starz) That part was...

"I am Spartacus."
Newcomer Liam McIntyre pronounces these iconic words in Spartacus: Vengeance, which returns to Starz for its second season on Friday at 10/9c. In a way, the Aussie is proclaiming the new regime, both as the slave who won his freedom and as the actor who stepped into Spartacus' shoes after Andy Whitfield had to exit because of lymphoma. (Whitfield died in September.)
McIntyre: Andy Whitfield's death was the "saddest day" on the Spartacus set
Spartacus is back, and when the bloody action series returns, the storied hero is fighting harder than ever for his freedom.
"Spread word to all the slaves," Spartacus, now played by Liam McIntyre, says in the trailer, "that even the mighty republic bleeds when struck." And just like the first season of the Starz series — and its...

Whitfield died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in Sydney on Sunday, his manager, Sam Maydew, told The Associated Press. In a statement, Whitfield's wife, Vashti, called her husband a "beautiful young warrior" who died in the "arms of his loving wife," according to the AP.
Whitfield, a Welsh actor who lived in Australia, was virtually unknown to American audiences when he was cast in the lead of the graphically violent and sexual Starz series....
